We support small to medium business's and offer a few solutions based more on budget unfortunately then the high standards listed above. But we often come very close to those standards providing the same level of data protection without the the high cost of a mirror site.

An RFP for large business and government facility's is not the same for the smaller private sector comunites and doesn't necessarily fit. Being able to offer local or image backups and off site solutions in addition to robust raid array's and virtual machines that can move to another host has become a growing and obtainable goal for a lot of SMB's.

We are finding that there are several solutions that will meet the needs of the different environments and allow growth and the addition of redundancies when needed. I would recommend to most that if you do have a RFP for your backup solution you revisit that and make sure your not overlooking other solutions that might be able to meet your requirements and keep costs down to a minimum.

Both application driven decisions and company requirements can be be very different and when software such as Oracle and many others are involved, your RFP although very robust and redundant may not be the best Solution. I have seen over and over the DBA's backing up there data through some CLI script to the oddest of places bypassing the companies backup solution. When I have asked why the answer is usually very close from each companies DBA. "The backup software doesn't work with our database properly." Making sure the solution your requesting will meet the needs of everyone does require some special attention and may require you to go outside of a standard RFP. If your working with a tight budget, that one variable could make your RFP no longer a viable solution due to costs. So keeping and RFP loose and with multiple options you should be able to find a solution that is not over the top with redundancy and works with all your application and data needs.

Hey Russell,

Sorry……. I don’t have an RFP sample for you and obviously you know the ins and outs of the BDR process.
I did some blogs on all of the aspects of BDR – you may want to look at them and cut and paste to create your own RFP.

Please go to………….. http://www.oasistechnology.com/oasis-blog/
and go to the Backup and Disaster Recover sections – there are about six short parts.

If you inclined, feel free to use this material to build your document.
