Uganda: Experts Tip Government On Data Recovery - AllAfrica.com

COMPUTER Point, an information communicating engineering company, have tipped authorities federal agencies on information recovery systems in lawsuit of physical disaster.

The company have experts in information storage, catastrophe recovery and back-up technologies, which let for an organisation's information to be stored outside its premises.

"The Government should spearhead catastrophe information recovery procedure in the East African region," Anil Kuruvilla, the managing director, said.

He was last hebdomad speech production during a information protection and catastrophe recovery sensitization workshop for authorities establishments at the Imperial Royale Hotel in Kampala.

"Disaster recovery is about concern continuity. It's about doing concern without interruption," Kuruvilla noted.

Kuruvilla appealed to the federal agencies to take advantage of NetApp software; Snapshot, which utilizes stored back-ups to retrieve full information file systems and information volumes in secs regardless of capacity or a figure of files.

Eran Brown, the NetApp systems engineer, stressed that the Snapshot procedure was automatic and takes up "very small storage space."

Brown explained that the traditional information recovery necessitates that all information is copied from back-up to the source, which he said was time-consuming and inhabits large space in footing of disc capacity.

"NetApp concern solution assists you to keep application handiness during unplanned downtime, enabling you to quickly acquire back to concern in the event of a disaster," Brown said.

He said NetApp take downs the overall cost of disk-based catastrophe recovery and speed ups other concern mathematical functions like application testing and development to increase net income and investment.
