Backup and disaster recovery management

Did you know that 43% of companies suffering a complete data loss will never re-open ? do not add your organization to this statistic!

A disaster recovery plan is the documented and "rehearsed" process involved in restoring your critical IT operations in the event of suffering a massive data and / or operational loss.

It is therefore essential that every organization has a disaster recovery plan, and has it documented and practiced regularly so that it can be actioned WHEN (not if) required.

" It is fact that 43% of organizations suffering a complete data loss will never reopen, 51% close within two years and only 6% survive long-term [1]."

A disaster may include:

  • Server failure
  • Workstation / laptop failure
  • Hardware failure
  • Data corruption
  • Human Error or negligence
  • Malicious damage
  • Property theft
  • Natural Disaster (floods, fire, earthquake etc)

Can you afford not to?

Most equipment is easily replaceable, insurance companies provide this service, but what about your company data, system configuration, software or even just your general system up time? Can you put a price on losing all of these business components or even just some? If your office was to suffer a disaster as listed above, could you answer the following questions:

  • Do you know the hardware and software specifications of your server and workstations?
  • Do you know which programs are critical for the day-to-day operation of your company?
  • Do you know where the backup, installation media and licensing information resides?
  • How much data would you lose in the above scenario and which operations will be affected?
  • Which services need to be restored first and in which order?
  • Do you know where the relevant backup media resides?
  • Who is in charge of restoring the data / operations?
  • Have these backups been tested?
  • What new equipment would you need to order? When will it arrive and from where will you order it?
  • How long will the total restore process take?

The above information is just a sample of what is required to formulate an effective and reliable backup system and disaster recovery plan. When engaged, an Epic IT consultant will be meet you face to face to specify, design and develop an effective disaster recovery environment that will ensure business continuity no matter what event your organization endures.
