The Benefits of Adding Backup and Disaster Recovery

The Benefits of Adding Backup and Disaster Recovery

Every business is an accomplishment of hard work and decisive action. Success is earned through a commitment to excellence and investments for the future, so it’s only natural that you’d want to safeguard your business from danger. In today’s always-on, digital world, data plays a critical role in the success of your business, and studies show again and again that losing that data can close a business in short time. The costs and risks associated with downtime are massive, and the damage to your business’ brand and reputation are immeasurable.

Adding a backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solution to your business’ technology stack can protect you from the risks associated with data loss, however not all BDR solutions are created equal. Having TotalContinuity, our backup and disaster recovery solution, has numerous benefits beyond file restoration. Here are just a few:

 

Prepared for any Disaster
Having a BDR solution is a good idea, but an actual data-loss event is not the time to use it for the first time. Additionally, not all disaster recovery efforts are the same. Recovery from a natural disaster like fire or flood can differ from a cybersecurity attack or a user error, for example.

With our BDR solution, we’re able to simulate and test a coordinated disaster recovery scenario, ensuring all the necessary technology is in place, personnel is trained, procedures are in place and data is restored as fast as possible. We’ll use our expertise to customize a business continuity plan that’s tailored to your specific business requirements.

 


Cost Savings
In a worst-case scenario, the speed at which you can restore business continuity (the term that’s used for maintaining online systems, data and functionality) determines the magnitude of financial loss. Advancements in cloud technology offer small businesses an unprecedented opportunity to tap into resources that were once only available to large enterprise organizations. With regard to backup, a cloud-based storage can help business drastically reduce the cost of data replication, offsite storage, and more.

The result is that in the event of a disaster, we can spin up virtual servers in the cloud to get your business back online in hours instead of days, mitigating your financial loss. And, with our continuous data protection technology, the most current backup of your system will always be available—allowing you to get back to business, drive revenue and restore employee productivity.

 

Peace of Mind
Just like any other technology, a BDR solution can only be effective if it is maintained, and unfortunately many BDR solutions on the market are implemented and abandoned. With TotalContinuity, our team of technicians are constantly checking that your industry-standard, AES-256 encrypted data backups are verified, so that they will always be reliable and available to use in the event of any downtime.

In the end, backup and disaster recovery is about peace of mind. Hardware fails, employees make mistakes, security breaches are on the rise and natural disasters are unpredictable and unavoidable; even in the face of unpredictable events, you can rest assured that you have a reliable solution and a reliable team in place at all times. Knowing your business’ data can survive all of the above with the help of our team is invaluable, and can enable you to confidently move your business successfully forward.
