Business Continuity Plans

Here at vCloud we specialise in keeping your business running. Our data centre is fully geared to ensure your company’s business continuity. We have the equipment in place so that if something does happen to your site, we can power your servers back up in our environment so your business can continue operating as usual with the least amount of downtime possible. We can do this in two ways, on the Growing Business plan via VirtualBoot Technology and on the Large Business plan via HeadStart Restore.

VirtualBoot Technology:
VirtualBoot is provided by the Oracle Corporation, it is a piece of vitalisation software that allows us to open your backup, finalise the backup and boot your server into a virtual environment. This is a great temporary measure and allows us to rebuild your server in the meantime.

HeadStart Restore:
This is a process that takes your backup image, whether the image has been created hourly or daily and applies it to one of our VMWare ESXi servers which then loads your server as it was up to an hour before the crash.

Our storage servers store your backup in your own vault, if you are on the Large Business plan, once a backup is received we then apply the backup and join it to the powered down virtual machine. In case you need the backup, we finalise the backup and then tell the VMWare ESXi server to power up the virtual machine, bringing the server online in our environment.

For more information, give us a call on 1800 VCLOUD (825 683) or visit our contact page and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible.
