What Total do

Total provides low-touch backup or backup and DR delivered as a service – inclusive of Rubrik technology, its installation and configuration, and ongoing management and support.

1 Preparation
In consultation with your key technical and management stakeholders, Total will:

  • agree the policies to meet your recovery time (RTO) and point (RPO) objectives

  • gather details of your environment
  • agree the service start date
  • schedule implementation.

As part of the service, Total will provide a Rubrik appliance for installation in your data centre. As standard, this has 10TB capacity. Owing to its very high deduplication ratio this is sufficient for many organisations, but it can be increased in 1TB increments. The cost of this appliance is included within contracts of 3 years, or more.

2 Implementation and config
Total will install the Rubrik appliance in your data centre, perform on-site validation tests plus remote configuration of policies and test of backup.

3 Business as usual management
Total will provide on-going management, with proactive monitoring and monitoring alerts 24 x 365 to ensure correct operation of both the appliance and its backups. This is supported by formal problem management (ensuring that backups and restorations are succeeding and that any anomalies are addressed), platform management (managing and assigning polices) and change management (including licensing updates). 

Rubrik’s WAN-optimised replication ensures that production workloads aren’t impacted by archival. Archived data is moved to Total’s hybrid data centre after 14 days.

Total Backup and DR includes monthly reporting of SLA compliance, snapshot storage and system capacity, compliance status and recovery failures. On request, Total will conduct a quarterly test of recovery*. 

4 Major incident management
In the event of a major incident, requiring either local recovery, or recovery to the cloud*, a service manager will take immediate responsibility for incident resolution and reporting.

  • compatible data centre technology – see Table 1
  • a management level relationship owner
