How would your business cope in the event of an IT problem? Do you have a proper recovery plan? The impact of disasters like fires, floods, hardware failures or thefts can threaten your business. Sadly, too often, the full impact of the damage is only realised after it happens.
Even businesses which think they’re protected are often vulnerable. How strong are your backup systems? Does your backup really work? Has a restore been tested? How long would it take to replace your main server and your backup device? Can you make sure that your current backup tape can be read by a newer device, if at all?
One of the first things we’ll do for you is make sure your existing backup systems are resilient before looking at better options to help you save money.
Virtualisation and disaster recovery
Running your IT on virtual servers lets you remotely backup your entire server, including data and configuration. If you do have a problem, if you’re using VMWare, you’ll be able to:
- Restore a full working machine in the time it takes to restore from backup media.
- Restore onto a completely different server.
- In some cases, be up-and-running the same day.
This, in conjunction with new backup technologies by Veeam, Symantec and Acronis, restoration has never been easier.
