What is the point in making a backup if you can’t retrieve the data? By conducting continuous restore tests, you can prevent both data loss and downtime. Yet there are other advantages to gain, too.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) focuses solely on backup frequency and loss of data, whereas Recovery Time Objective (RTO) sets limits for business continuity. This means that it limits how much downtime a company can tolerate.
We have extensive experience in restore tests and development of disaster recovery solutions, based on service level agreements (SLA). If you need inspiration, an informal talk, or specific advice on how to optimize the process before, during, and after restore tests, please contact us.
