I addressed this question in two parts, first what would I do from technology perspective and then format and key items that will be part of my Disaster Recovery (DR) Plan Like I mentioned earlier, in the next 10-15 years with cloud computing all my information will be on virtual servers. Developing a virtual backup strategy depends on a few factors such as the service levels required and the suitability of existing backup products. To start with virtual servers can’t be backed up like physical ones, with an agent per virtual machine, because of the I/O and CPU bottlenecks created. Virtual machines are much harder to track for backup purposes. Previously a physical server hosted an application and that one-to-one relationship was almost never broken. Now, it is possible for virtual machines (VMs) to be created, deleted and migrated in a matter of seconds or minutes. That means keeping an up-to-date inventory of VMs is near impossible, with the distinct possibility they may not be backed up at all.…show more content…
Today there are a few virtual server products and in time I am sure there will be many good products in the future. I will choose a virtual server backup product to suit my environment. First, I will need determine required service levels for recovery time objective and recovery point object. The will help me identify my requirements and help choose from a range of products that offer different service outcomes, from near continuous to periodic data protection. Also I believe the following the backup product should have the following key features • Multiple hypervisor support if there are more than one hypervisor deployed. Far better than having a separate product for VMware and Hyper-V, • Crash consistency, to ensure data is not lost if a VM fails or is migrated during backup
