BA Tuesday Tips: Automated Backup - How It Works & Why To Use It

Unitrends Recovery Assurance is an automated testing engine that enables you to perform recovery testing against a single machine or multiple, orchestrated machines in a highly automated fashion. Once configured, the job spins up an isolated environment directly from your backups and executes customized testing, including boot sequencing, machine reconfiguration and application-level scripts to certify workloads performance. In addition to testing, this job can be used for one-click failover, which spins up your most recent tested backups into production according to their orchestrated sequence.

VG Tuesday Tips: DR Testing - Why and How to Accomplish the Most Boring Thing That Will Save Your Ass(ets)

Testing take resources. Unless you have adopted a backup strategy with built-in automated testing capabilities (like Unitrends), testing backups requires resources, both personnel and compute. To complete testing, you need separate testing hardware, or a quick-spin-up testing lab. Using a production environment to test a backup adds heavy risk and diverts compute resources from critical business operations. Then you need to assign an employee to run the tests and validate the results. All this can add up to a significant financial investment that doesn’t impact the bottom line. (Well, it will in a negative way, but not until it is too late).
