In business things can go wrong, disasters can occur meaning business continuity is critical. Therefore, it’s essential to have a plan to get back on track should an incident happen – this is where Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) comes in.

Disaster Recovery as a Service is sub set of Business Continuity and acts as a backup service model that uses cloud resources to protect applications and data from disruption caused by a disaster. It also provides a total system back up that allows business continuity in the event of a fundamental system failure.

Our disaster recovery service will help your business with planning and managing incidents of all shapes and sizes.

How ready are you for a disaster striking your organisation?

When thinking about disaster recovery planning we’d encourage any IT decision makers to consider the following five questions was a means of gauging their readiness: 

  • Do you have a disaster recovery plan in place to protect your business? 
  • Do you know how to test the integrity of your data and, if yes, when you last tested it?
  • Is your data backed up off site in case an incident occurs?
  • How long would it take your organisation to recover your systems? 
  • Do you know the true cost of the downtime associated with a disaster, in both lost productivity and reputational damage with your customers? 

If you answer ‘no’ to any of these questions, then you should consider a managed disaster recovery service.

Common Questions

At any time, things can go wrong, disaster can occur, business continuity is therefore essential. That’s why it is important for organisations to ensure that if the worst does happen, then there is a plan in place to get things back on track. If you don’t already we strongly recommend having a fully customised DR plan (download our free template by clicking here) or consider having an established IT partner who can collaborate with you to create, test and implement your plan.

 

In the event an incident occurs, cloud-based recovery is an easily accessible, robust and cost effective way for managing your data off site. Our cloud services operates  by backing up your designated system data on a remote offsite cloud server. You’ll be able to back up your data offsite with automation  to ensure your files are updated daily.

As your Disaster Recovery as a Service provider we will work with you to establish recovery time objectives (RTO) and service level agreements to determine how long it will take your organisation to recover your systems. With almost 40 years’ experience in the market, we can ensure that we will get your systems back online in no time.

Disaster recovery should be viewed as part of your overall Business Continuity plan, with the aim being to restore your IT environment as quickly and efficiently as possible following any incident.

Business Continuity is a wider plan focusing on the key areas that keep a business operational; communications, employees and IT - and it's with IT that your disaster recovery kicks in.
