Disaster Recovery Solutions
Disaster recovery involves much more than a secondary site to house backup servers. It begins with awareness and planning to start to define two key time based values: Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO). These values determine the road map that the planner will create, which will define the disaster recovery plan. At GCA Technology Services, we take the time to understand the different value requirements and budgetary constraints that weighs in. Our familiarity with various products and brands allows us to carve a plan that fits your unique circumstances.
The RTO and RPO concepts belong to a methodology around a set of concepts and techniques for managing information technology (IT) infrastructure, development and operations. These concepts are referred to as Information Technology Infrastructure Library (ITIL). GCA Technology Services is fully trained in the ITIL practice (as well as a training provider for ITIL) and employs their use in disaster recovery planning.
GCA Technology Services' disaster recovery solutions can involve any or all of the following components:
- Determining RTO and RPO
- Producing a plan using best practices
- Supplying the hardware and software products needed
- Implementation of the hardware and software
- Testing the plan

These services are provided through virtualization, advanced storage and replication services.
