Failover & Failback
In order to keep your business running, it is crucial to have Internet connectivity that you can rely on 24/7. However, network bottlenecks, system downtimes and Internet outages can cause a variety of problems, especially as many businesses are moving or have moved to DSL which is inherently less reliable and holds no uptime guarantees.
Despite reliable, continuous Internet connectivity being a necessity in today’s market, up time guarantees are still only provided around costly fibre connections, hence the need for innovative solutions such as bonding and load balancing. Service uptimes can be offered for UBM solution utilising a mixture of access technologies and/or different ISP providers, giving your business the comfort needed.
With a continuing shift towards online business and an increase in the use of applications such as VoIP, Hosted Applications and email communications, the Internet has become integral to key business operations and IT infrastructure. If your organisation does not have an Internet failover strategy in place, your mission critical applications and online operations are at risk from a single point of failure.
Below is a diagram detailing a failover scenario:
The UBM is deployed transparently between your firewall and routers, if at any point a WAN circuit fails, the UBM automatically routes traffic to the live connection/s, until such time as the failed circuit is restored, so connectivity is not lost completely. This failover process is virtually invisible to the user, so business operations are never impacted.
A key feature of the Xrio UBM is that it is designed to be deployed in to your network transparently, so no changes need to be made to your network at all! Due to this transparent deployment you can guarantee risk free installation and no disruption to your existing infrastructure and configurations, what could be simpler.
- Business Continuity - Implement Xrio UBM as part of your business continuity plan to ensure maximum uptime for WAN and VPN.
- High Availability - Eliminate single points of failure through the use of a HA pair (primary and standby appliances).
- Disaster Recovery - Should you suffer a disaster you can take the disaster recovery lease option from Xrio, from order to delivery we can generally have your UBM with you within the day, so you can resume Internet connectivity or increase Internet speed to minimise business impact and assist in a quick recovery, as quickly as possible.
- Offsite Backup - Maintaining offsite copies of your backup gives you the ability to restore your critical data on a different server at anytime in the event that the primary site becomes inoperable.
