The OptfinITy BDR

An Organization’s technology infrastructure is typically the most important aspect when it comes to operations and studies have shown that 93% of companies who lose data or access to their systems for just 10 days file for bankruptcy within a year while 50% file for bankruptcy immediately*.

Data loss can be devastating and having a reliable backup and disaster recovery system can mean the difference between staying afloat or not.

OptfinITy realizes the importance of a good and reliable backup and system which is why we offer an advanced Backup and Disaster Recovery Device, also known as a BDR device. The OptfinITy BDR solution is fast, reliable, secure, and very cost effective. It provides the following capabilties:

  • Backup with infinite restore points and rapid recovery
  • Encryption of backup files using a 256-bit military grade AES algorithm
  • Cost effective online storage in the cloud
  • Secure online storage at redundant locations around the country
  • Full server restores to bare metal, to dissimilar hardware or to and from virtual environments
  • Fail-over to virtual servers within an hour (providing timely business continuity)

    What a BDR does and How a BDR Works

    Using a Network Attached Storage (NAS) based device, our system performs backups at the hard drive block level where the actual digital 1’s and 0’s are captured eliminating issues caused by open files. And because our system operates at the block level, it is far more efficient than file structure formatted backups. Our NAS device can be configured for any version of Windows by partition or by logical drives. A snapshot of the entire partition is taken at the block level so there is no file or folder exclusions, it’s a exact reflection of your server(s). Which means database applications like Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange Server are transferred in blocks eliminating failures when a file is open. Also, with our technology’s fast virtualization capabilities, our NAS device can be temporarily configured to function as a replacement server if needed.

    This unique device replaces management intensive, error-prone tape backups while providing much more…starting with peace of mind.

    Online / Offsite Storage Facility

    For additional protection in the event of a complete disaster, data is securely transferred to an off-site co-location facility on a daily basis. Then, in event of such an occurrence, we can provide a new NAS device imaged with your most recent data.

    BDR Recovery after a Catastrophe

    If the server crashes, the BDR becomes your server, virtually eliminating any downtime your company may have. If a disaster results in losing the entire office — servers and on-site NAS included— we turn the BDR on in the cloud for your company to access and begin working on replacement servers immediately.
