Carbonite Recover allows you to perform unlimited test failovers, and generate a report that shows you whether or not the test was successful. This demo video shows you how this works within the Carbonite Data Protection Console.
Carbonite Recover enables you to perform unlimited, non-disruptive testing of your failover environment.
The failover test option is available in the Carbonite Data Protection Console.
Recover also allows you to quickly generate a report that shows whether failover attempts – for both live and test failovers – are successful.
The Reports tab displays separate entries for each failover attempt.
Each entry indicates whether or not the failed over server booted properly.
Click the status to see how long the system took to fail over.
This is known as your recovery time objective, or RTO.
Additional details include how long the failed over server ran in the cloud …
The exact time the failover started and ended …
And how current the data was when the server failed over.
This is known as the recovery point objective, or RPO.
The report also allows administrators to override the status manually if there’s an exception that needs to be flagged, such as whether a dependency was missed.
The Carbonite Recover failover reporting feature helps prove whether the recovery environment is working as expected.
It gives you proof of successful failover testing, which helps satisfy stakeholders that critical data has the protection it needs.
Carbonite Recover failover reporting instills confidence in your disaster recovery solution …
