F12 (formerly MBU) Vault is more than just an insurance policy it is a critical component of your disaster recovery plan. It’s your first step in protecting your infrastructure from unforeseen failures and damage that can occur at any moment. MBU’s hosted infrastructure is located on Microsoft Azure’s local servers, ensuring your data is stored and maintained wholly within Canada. With MBU Vault in place, you can rest easy knowing that your disaster recovery plan includes provision for critical business data and applications will always be available in the event of an unplanned outage or catastrophe.

MBU Vault Backup offers a powerful data protection solution that delivers block-level backup and true global deduplication for fast and frequent backup to disk with the most efficient usage of WAN and storage resources.

Our technology not only speeds backup, but it can also significantly reduce backup storage requirements, the impact on the production server and the amount of data transmitted across the network.

And since backups are stored on disk, data recovery is fast, delivering better recovery time objectives (RTOs) to help address your business demands on your IT systems and thus helping improve your productivity while reducing costs.

MBU Vault DR, in addition to the features in the Vault Backup program, offers advanced functionality for faster system recovery for your demanding applications.

In case of an unplanned system outage on request and as part of your disaster recovery plan, Vault DR provides data recovery to a standby virtual server that limits downtime for your business. Virtual Standby performs “is-alive” monitoring of your server and enables manual or automatic failover to the standby virtual server.

When formulating your disaster recovery plan, consider that after an unplanned outage, Vault DR offers the option to spin-up a virtual version of your server infrastructure for an affordable one-time fee.
