Disaster Recovery

  • Westbridge Consulting are a VMware and Acronis hosted disaster recovery provider

Service Overview

How it works

Acronis Backup and Recovery images are stored in a virtual FTP server in the Westbridge vCloud with full segregation for multiple server/client images.

In the event of a DR event or server failure the Acronis image is injected into a new pay-as-you-go virtual machine in the vCloud environment. Multiple server images can be injected into multiple virtual machines for rapid recovery on a pay as you go basis.

During the disaster recovery phase, client access to the DR environment is via a VPN.

When the local environment is recovered the DR environment re-synchronises with the recovered environment.

You only pay for the recovery servers for the hours/days that they are used.
