Disaster Recovery Services
Disaster recovery is more than just preventing data loss. Ensure your company’s survival with our disaster recovery services.
When most people think of IT disaster recovery, they think about restoring a backup after a hard drive crash.
If that is the extent of your own thinking, then you are very vulnerable to being put out of business by all of the other things that can happen to your business’ IT, data and infrastructure.
That is why Digital Uppercut’s complete suite of disaster recovery services can be so valuable to your business.
What happens if you don’t plan for an IT Disaster
What happens if you don’t plan for an IT Disaster? Financial firms that lose their clients’ account information will find themselves open to lawsuits...or maybe even go out of business because they will not know who owes them money. Health-care and related companies that lose patient data can find themselves out of business and liable for severe HIPAA-related costs, fines and possible jail time. And other types of service or product businesses, whether B2B or B2C, will find themselves out of business in short order.
And even if you manage to stay in business, the costs to recreate your data will still require unimaginable costs and time, not to mention the nagging fear that the recreated data is not entirely accurate.
Disaster Recovery is a program that we put in place to deal with all kinds of unplanned emergencies. So when something happens, you can avoid all of those consequences and stay in business.
Disasters Are More Than Just Data Loss
Yes, your hard drive could crash. A computer can be damaged by a carelessly-placed cup of coffee. Someone could steal your computers. An electrical short at an outlet (or battery backup) can damage your workstations. But with all of those possibilities, there is much more to disaster recovery than just data loss.
Disaster recovery services, when done right, allow your business to continue in the face of almost any kind of threat, such as:
- Loss of internet access
- Loss of power
- Failure of a workstation
- Server failure
- Human Error
- Malicious intent by a disgruntled employee
- Hackers, Viruses & Ransomware
- Failure of some of your network infrastructure, such as a firewall or router
And sometimes, having a poorly designed disaster recovery plan can be just as bad as having no plan at all. That’s because you might be wrongly depending on a plan that just won’t work, or a plan that will cause excessive downtime because it takes far too long to execute.
Single Points of Failure -- Disasters Waiting to Happen
Think for a moment about something as common as your internet access. Most businesses depend on it, and at the same time don’t realize all the ways that you could lose your internet access. A failure of any of these critical parts of your network infrastructure could stop your business cold:
- Cable modem
- Network Switch
- Battery Backup
When we plan a disaster recovery solution for your business, we think about these “single points of failure” and create alternatives that will help to keep you in business if even the smallest disaster were to strike.
Your Disaster Recovery Services Includes:
Disaster Recovery For Every business
Each business we deal with has a different tolerance for each of these kinds of disasters. For example, some can run for days without internet access, or without access to a specific workstation. And for others, every piece of equipment is vital to their current operations.
Our disaster recovery solutions include backups and redundancies for:
- Data backups
- Internet Access
- Server Resources
- Networking Infrastructure
- Mission-Critical Workstations
- Physical access
- Network Documentation
- Disaster Recovery Plan Documentation
- 24/7 monitoring
- Daily testing
We customize our approach to disaster recovery based on each of our clients’ needs. We create a solution that is prioritized to your operations and budget.
The (Usually) Missing Part Of Most Disaster Recovery Plans
We’ve walked into businesses with apparently excellent disaster recovery plans. There are backup systems and plans for almost any kind of outage. But when we ask our client one critical question that reveals that their disaster recovery planning is incomplete.
What is that question?
It’s “Have you tested it?”
Testing your plan is a critical part of the plan. The very last thing you want to have happen is to believe that you are protected, only to discover that you’ve lost the ability to conduct business, or lost all of your data.
At Digital Uppercut, our disaster recovery services not only include the designing and building of your disaster recovery plan, but also the testing of that plan.
Without it, your plan is potentially worthless.
