Disaster Recovery Software and Services Site-to-Site Data Backup
In today’s highly competitive marketplace, losing even a single day’s data—including communications and transactions with prospects, customers, suppliers and partners—can put a company at risk of going out of business. Single-site backups alone are inadequate protection against fires, floods, earthquakes, or any other disaster that could make the primary site inaccessible or unviable.
Dell™ SonicWALL™ CDP Site-to-Site Data Backup automatically transmits and stores data using secure AES 256-bit encryption to another CDP appliance at a remote site. In the event the local CDP appliance is no longer viable, IT administrators can easily recover any stored revision of data through an easy-to-use user interface.
Automatic offsite data protection.
At regular scheduled intervals, CDP replicates current copies of files and application data (such as Microsoft® Exchange and SQL® databases) automatically to a secured remote CDP appliance for disaster recovery.
Minimal bandwidth impact.
CDP transmits only incremental changes to the offsite CDP appliance to ensure minimal bandwidth impact on the network.
Bandwidth throttling provides IT the ability to control the maximum allowable level of network traffic CDP can use to transmit data during site-to-site replication. This helps to ensure that network performance is at its highest level and reserved for other priority applications during peak business hours.
Point-and-click data recovery.
Through an easy point-and-click data recovery process, the administrator can instantly restore business-critical data to get vital systems and services up and running quickly for business continuity.
AES 256-bit encryption key.
Data is securely transmitted and stored using advanced encryption standards.
Versatile Deployment Scenarios
One-to-One Backup over the LAN or WAN
- In a unidirectional configuration, the primary Dell™ SonicWALL™ Continuous Data Protection (CDP) appliance backs up to a secondary appliance
- In a bidirectional configuration, primary and secondary appliances back up to each other in a bidirectional configuration
- Ensures redundant backup within local or wide area network
- Adds layer of protection when offsite is not required
- Eliminates data loss at a cost-effective price point
- Keeps customer in complete control of their data protection strategy
- Off-site secondary appliance protects against disasters at primary site
Multiple-appliance Backup over the WAN/VPN
- In a many-to-one configuration, multiple CDP appliances back up to a single CDP appliance
- In a circular serial unidirectional configuration, a primary CDP appliance backs up to a secondary appliance, which in turn backs up to a tertiary appliance, and so on, ultimately backing up to the original primary appliance
- For use in a distributed network for companies with branch offices
- Local data on upstream CDP can go to another CDP appliance
- Provides backup consolidation for branch office/remote office deployments
