Frequently asked questions
What is included in the Business Continuity Package?
Vorbi will build a virtual router on your behalf.
The network plays a vital role in rapidly recovering from a disaster, or adverting a disaster altogether. Our distributed, software-defined virtual router provides complete flexibility and networking configuration options.
Vorbi will build a virtual firewall on your behalf.
A virtual firewall establishes secure, virtual, private connections to your sites and end-user devices. All data is encrypted in motion and at rest. Choose from a variety of firewall options, including PF Sense, Paloalto, Barracuda, Microsoft, and Juniper.
Vorbi will build and connect a secondary domain controller (DC) to the primary DC on your behalf.
What is a Domain Controller?
The domain controller (“DC”) is a server which responds to security authentication requests, and enables users to access files based on permissions. For example, if Jane wants to get to the “Accounting” drive on the server, the Domain Controller (and Active Directory within the DC) is the traffic police that will either deny or approve Jane’s access.
Why is a secondary Domain Controller important?
A secondary domain controller can be setup in an Active / Active state, which is what this package includes. This secondary domain controller, hosted in a virtual private environment, will replicate the DC in real time so any changes made to files on DC 1, will replicate in real time to DC 2. For example, if Jane’s company’s primary DC is at their office, and Jane walks in on Monday morning to find that the ceiling tiles leaked water and the physical DC is completely offline, business can still continual as usual since Jane has a secondary DC which picked up the permissions control automatically when DC1 went offline. If Jane’s company did not have a secondary DC, Jane (and everyone else at Jane’s office), would not be able to even log into their work computers or access any file on any server on their network since almost all the servers would be controlled by the DC. They better start filing papers, because without access to their servers and files, Jane’s company will not be able to continue business as usual.
Vorbi will build and connect a secondary file server and connect it to the primary File Server on your behalf.
What is a File Server?
A file server is a physical or virtual machine that holds all the files for an organization. File servers in traditional office environments are joined to the Domain, and access to the files on this server are controlled by the DC.
Why is a secondary File Server important?
Similar to DCs, Microsoft file servers can be configured in an Active / Active mode where if a user makes a change to a file on the server, that change is replicated in real time to the secondary file server. If something happens to the primary file server (physical failures, human error, etc.) the secondary file server automatically takes control and the company files are still accessible. If there was no secondary file server in place and something happened to the primary file server, users would not be able to access any files on that file server and day-to-day operations would come to a halt.
Vorbi will install the Vorbi backup client on the secondary servers and replicate the data to a different Vorbi region.
What are data backups?
Data backups result from the copying of files for the purpose of being able to restore them should a business experience data loss. Data loss can happen due to hardware failure, human error, viruses, etc.
Why are backups important?
Data-level backups are important as an additional precaution to protect your most critical business information. Backing up the root data to a geographically isolated region adds protection from natural disasters and is critically important.
The Vorbi Business Continuity package includes the installation and monitoring of up to 5 monitoring sensors:
- Secondary DC: Monitoring Pings
- Secondary File: Monitoring Disk Space Usage
- Firewall: Monitoring Pings
- Primary DC: Monitoring Pings
- Primary File: Monitoring Disk Space Usage
What is monitoring?
Monitoring in the IT world is watching specific aspects of server health to enable IT teams to proactively head off issues before they become service-impacting. For example, if the disk size on a file server runs out of space, the server can become inaccessible. Instead of this happening, a monitor would be sent to your team showing low disk space (when it drops below a certain threshold), giving your team time to add disk space to the server before it becomes an actual service impacting issue. Vorbi’s monitoring will send alerts to your IT team so you can take action when it counts.
Why is monitoring important?
Monitoring is important to keep businesses running smoothly, to identify problems before they occur and to ensure your business runs a proactive instead of reactive IT team.
