Server Disaster Recovery

The Solution

Based on disaster recovery, high availability and fault tolerant technology, the Non-Stop Server is a stand-alone server packaged with data replication and failover software. It works as a ‘Target server’ when connected to your existing ‘Source server’ on a 1:1 basis. Data written to the Source server will be replicated to the Target server in real-time i.e. both servers are always synchronised.

Attaching the Non-Stop Server to your existing network server eliminates downtime for all users on the network when the Source server suffers from a failure. Without manual intervention, the Non-Stop Server instantaneously takes over as the Source server and all the users connected to the network continue seamlessly.

When both servers are synchronised, the Non-Stop Server will automatically revert to the Target server and the other to the original Source server. This process is completely transparent to the network users.

Solution Implementation

All we require is your archived data. The system will be implemented in accordance to your requirements. It can generate various report types for all levels of the organisation. The system could also be extended to forecast future sales based on your company’s past data.
