Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity
Disaster Recovery (DR) and Business Continuity (BC) are of paramount importance in protecting your business from the unknown. In today’s world of ever increasing terrorist threats, what would you do if the unspeakable were to happen to your business, or what if a critical server were to fail and you lose not just the application but the data associated with it? Our solution suite will ensure that if your business were to suffer from an external threat, your data would be protected and easily restored. We also have solutions to protect your data at a local level in real time so that any outage, should it occur, will not cause major gaps in your data stacks after restoration.
Also, at a business level, we can create working DR and BC plans and procedures to ensure that your teams will know exactly what to do and how to go about carrying on with “business as usual” activities if DR needed to be invoked.
