Take a minute to think about the files that are on your computers and servers. In the digital age, files and records are easier to store, access and updated. However, a key issue each business must address is what happens should your computers go down. What is at stake if all of your files are lost, and can a backup and disaster recovery solution really prevent this from happening to your business?
For the most part, files are stored centrally in one location (for example a server) to make them available to several users or employees. Unfortunately, there's a problem with "putting all your eggs in one basket": any hard drive (and especially older ones) are susceptible to failure. And when they fail, your data may be lost with them. Server disaster recovery does exist, but it requires a proactive approach and planning for disasters, but unfortunately most business owners find these a hassle to setup and maintain.
If your business was ever to experience a data disaster caused either by hardware failure, natural disasters, human error or an outside intrusion, the odds of your business' recovery aren't very good unless a reliable backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solution has been implemented beforehand. The consequences of a potential data loss are dire and extremely painful: nearly 70% of all businesses who lose their data go out of business within 12 months.
Therefore, having a reliable data recovery solution in place is an essential part of any business continuity plan. This is why at Onestop IT, professional BDR solutions are included in all IT support contracts.
Our data backup and recovery solution (provided by industry leading Datto, an Inc 500 company) uses modern technologies to create instant local and off-site virtualisation that delivers the most aggressive recovery time objective of any backup, recovery and business continuity solution available today.
With our advanced BDR solution in place, your business is guaranteed to be able to continue work immediately after, and even during a data disaster. This is possible because our solution employs the virtualisation of your systems either locally on the Datto device that will be installed in your location as well as remotely in the cloud - within seconds. The hybrid cloud technology behind our backup solution improves redundancy and gives your enterprise an extra layer of protection while optimising storage efficiency. All of your important files are stored away from the main systems and should the worst ever occur, a simple re-route would be all it takes to get everything back up and running to where it was earlier in the day - all in under 10 seconds! This significantly reduces downtime for your staff, while the risk of data loss for your organisation becomes virtually zero.
We firmly believe that all businesses require reliable backup services. If your business doesn't currently have one in place, we strongly urge you to call us on 0131 5100 100 for further information on our solutions.
