Backups & Disaster Recovery:
14 full backups up to 3 months: 1 per day for 7 days, 1 per week for 4 weeks, 1 per month for 3 months
Users can download manual backups of their live data.
Permanent disaster will impact one server only, our Disaster Recovery Plan has the following metrics:
RPO (Recovery Point Objective) = 15 minutes, you can lose maximum 15 minutes of work.
RTO (Recovery Time Objective) = 60 minutes, the service will be back online within maximum of 60 minutes (Standby promotion time + DNS propagation time included) unless there is a local/ domestic issue with your power provider.
For data center disasters (In case, one entire data center is completely and permanently down), Disaster Recovery Plan has these metrics:
RPO (Recovery Point Objective) = 24 hour, you can lose maximum 24 hour of work if the data cannot be recovered and we need to restore the last daily backup
RTO (Recovery Time Objective) = 24 hour, the service will be restored from the backup within 24 hours in a different data center.
For any force majeure issue.
