The Challenges of Data Disaster Recovery in the Energy Industry

The energy industry's overall underinvestment in disaster recovery poses a challenge to technological innovation and the digital transformation of the industry.


Business Continuity

Due to the overall underinvestment in disaster recovery within the energy industry, there is a significant lag in infrastructure compared to the rapidly growing data volumes. This mismatch makes it challenging to achieve unified management of critical systems such as PCS, DMS, TMS, and SCM.


Massive Data

With the deep integration of new smart technologies and energy business, the energy industry is becoming more and more dependent on digitalization and intelligent technologies, leading to a continuous growth in the amount of data and diversification of sources.


Regulatory Compliance

In order to ensure the reliability of large-capacity power systems and related infrastructure, the energy industry strictly adheres to energy market regulations such as FERC and FTC. These detailed regulations pose significant challenges to disaster recovery plans in the energy industry.


Ransomware Attacks

The energy industry supplies core necessities for people's daily lives, with data playing a crucial role. However, the frequent occurrence of ransomware attacks puts this data at risk of encryption or exposure. Once targeted, energy supply may be disrupted, resulting in significant losses for businesses and adversely affecting social order and livelihoods.

We have to look for a new backup solution after we implemented XenServer infrastructure in our virtualization because the previous backup solution only can protect VMware VMs. We are surprised that Vinchin not only can backup XenServer, but also can backup VMware the same time, so no doubt, We replaced the previous backup solution with Vinchin and it saves us 50% budget!
