Access Management

Access Management is an integral component of security, systems administration and maintaining compliance. Cartika provides you with an interface to create users in our AD/LDAP stacks. Customers create users, assign to groups and assign those groups to access various infrastructure and services. Users/Groups are being used to manage SSH access, Exchange/eMail users and/or access to your WordPress Admin area and other applications you are hosting with Cartika.

Disaster Recovery

 

Proactive Managed Disaster Recovery

 

Cartika clearly outlines the level of disaster recovery a user can expect to receive with each level of service. With Cartika Proactive Management, Cartika will return the Server or VM to the point of the latest full/incremental backup.

Customers can choose the frequency and retention period of backups (with our default configuration set to daily backups with 15 restore points). Customers can opt to have backups taken multiple times per day, maintain longer retention periods, replicate backups with the same or different frequency to multiple locations. Additionally, many customers will configure multiple managed environments, will have their application replicate to accommodate high availability, as well as, many various configurations which would dramatically reduce or practically completely negate the requirement ever to perform a full Disaster Recovery scenario.

With a Proactively Managed Service by Cartika – We are responsible for restoring your environment in case of a Disaster Recovery Scenario.

Physical Servers will be restored using our BMR technology. Restore times are purely dependent on the amount of data being restored.

Virtual Servers can be restored immediately from the latest snapshot available from the customer, then the latest file/database structure can be restored within minutes from our backup system.

Lacking a recent VM snapshot/template, VM’s can be restored in the following manners:

a) a *nix VM can be restored from the latest file level backup via our inhouse technology to build a bootable template from the latest incremental snapshot.  This process is extremely quick, and the VM can be booted within a few minutes.

b) Windows VMs can utilize our BMR technology, and a VM can be restored within minutes to hours depending on the volume of data. For all VM environments (and more specifically Windows VM’s), we highly recommend customers take regular snapshots to have available in case a Disaster Recovery scenario is required.
