Keeping your data intact and accessible needs to be a priority for every business. But when things go wrong (it’s only a question of when not if) you can rely on our team to recover your important data and get you back on your feet.
If your business in not positioned to take advantage of cloud services at this point in time, you still need a strategy for data recovery. And full recovery of your data, whether from a laptop, external hard drive or server, is not a sure thing. That is why re recommend using our data storage and backup services. It is far safer to prevent data loss than to worry about how you might recover from a data disaster in the future.
That being said the first step to successful data recovery is to have a successful online backup plan in place BEFORE YOU NEED IT.
Data disaster recovery is a multi-layered process.
Layer One – The System
The devices you use to do your work and access your information. This includes desktop computers as well as routers, switches and other network infrastructure.
We start by ‘imaging’ your computer – taking a snapshot of a series of files so that we have a fallback position if you experience a failure. This usually takes from 2 to 5 hours per machine. We then setup a schedule for backing up your system – either daily or hourly and store that information on our remote servers where it can be retrieved if needed. While avoiding data loss entirely would be paradise, our goal is to have files we can rely on to restore your system and get you back up and running quickly with as little stress as possible.
Layer Two – The Data
This is where the hair pulling can get serious if you’re not prepared. Regardless of whether you’re using virtual or physical servers to store your information, having immediate access to redundant data is the key to success. We will sit down with you to assess your business and draw up a custom action plan for disaster recovery.
