How will you quickly return impacted applications to operation if your primary storage system suffers hardware failure or a software bug? What if ransomware infects your primary storage systems? Do you have a secondary system that is immune from the attack and available?
Standby Storage is the answer to these questions. However, instead of sitting idle, standby storage is a feature of StorONE’s S1:Backup. It works for you every day, reducing your backup windows, protecting backup data and backup metadata from ransomware attacks, and retaining data indefinitely. When your worst day happens, it can elevate itself to a ready-to-go recovery area that can deliver production-class performance and availability.
This whitepaper, “What is Standby Storage,” details how the ready-to-go aspect of S1:Backup works and how you can leverage it in your environment.
