Backup Strategy and Recovery Services
Why do I need backup and disaster recovery planning?
Hard drive technology and servers have come a long way with much fewer falling victim to failures and data corruption, but it does still happen. The best option is to have regular backups in place that can be used in the event of a failed system to restore it with the least amount of data loss.
We can develop a backup strategy that ensures your critical data, operating systems and network configurations are backed up regularly and can be used to restore your systems with the least amount of downtime.
Statistically, the highest causes of downtime can be attributed to two things - accidents from natural events and human error resulting in malware, accidental deletion/overwritten data and software malfunctions. In the worst cases, these errors can lead to corrupted files and unusable services, where a partial or full restoration from a backup is the only way to recover.
With our backup and recovery planning in place, we ensure that you are able to restore your critical data efficiently in the event a human error or accident has caused your systems to fail.
Your employees rely on your network and servers to work to get their jobs done. When you experience downtime because of a hardware failure or data loss it can stop your employees from providing the services your customers expect.
The longer the downtime, the longer your customers have to go to a competitor, and the greater the productivity losses for your business.
Our network engineers can provide planning and solutions that ensure your business network is reliable and able to recover swiftly after an unexpected failure with backup and recovery solutions tailored to your business needs.
There are multiple studies proving that businesses which lose their critical data are at a high risk of going under. For many businesses, their critical data is needed for the business to function and has taken considerable time and money to produce.
The cost to replace this data if it is not backed up properly can put a business's future in jeopardy. Depending on the nature of your business there may also be risks of fines and legal fees to contend with if customer data and accounting data was lost or compromised.
Our network engineers work with you to identify your critical data assets and develop strategies that ensure your information is regularly backed up and ready to restore your systems as efficiently as possible.
Identify & Define
We first begin by working with your organization to identify the mission-critical data and systems your business relies on.
From there we work with you to define the requirements that need to be met in order to restore operations in the event of a failure.
Recommendations & Planning
By understanding how your business operates we can recommend backup and recovery strategies that work to ensure your business can recover swiftly and will not lose the critical data it needs to function.
Implementation & Monitoring
Once the plan is set we work with your team to implement the backup processes and provide necessary training to your staff so that they can be well informed and productive.
Our team won’t just set it and forget it either, we maintain observation of the changes to your network over a period of time to ensure that everything is working as designed.
