Behind the scenes – replication the key to data security

Storage Area Networks (SANs) provide block level data storage and are primarily used to enhance storage devices, such as disk arrays, and make them accessible to servers so that the devices appear like locally attached devices to the operating system. HDUK utilise SAN solutions to provide our clients with a comprehensive backup and disaster recovery service that helps ensure business continuity and achieve statutory regulation compliance.

SANs reside in the ‘cloud’, in our case within HDUK’s 2 UK based highly secure data centres, and form an important part of our infrastructure and in particular our virtual desktop setup. Due to the importance of the data that is stored in such cloud architecture data protection is critical.

SAN to SAN replication allows for all of our clients mission critical data and applications to be replicated between our two data centres quickly, easily and with little or no disruption to network availability. In fact, using SAN to SAN replication enables an automated and almost instantaneous transition to a disaster recovery environment. Our system is designed with simplified management in mind and, as a result, we can employ a quick fail-over between the two data centres in the event of a system failure or natural disaster.

HDUK currently replicates approximately 50 Terabytes of data each hour between our two data centres in Newbury, Berkshire and Ash in Kent.
