Virtualisation and Recovery

Why virtualisation is your best bet for backup and disaster recovery


Restoring a SCADA application and configuration can take a lot of time resulting in extended downtime. Virtualization eliminates this problem. Here are some of the benefits that come with a virtualized SCADA system:

Backups and Virtualization

Because virtualisation decouples data, applications, and operating systems from physical servers, it is simple to replicate backups. Backup best practice calls for multiple replicated backups—local, offsite, and in the cloud.

Adding virtual servers to store replicated backups is fast and easy in virtualised systems. This helps you meet your recovery time objectives (RTOs) and recovery point objectives (RPO) because you can replicate as frequently as you need, particularly for your critical systems.
