Every business should have a disaster recovery plan that is ready to implement, along with a strong backup strategy for critical data. Do you have one in place ready to go?
It is detrimental to any business to ensure that they have a) a backup strategy and b) a disaster recovery plan.
Both should be in place no matter the size of your business as they will need to be called on in the case of an emergency or unplanned event.
There are many backup solutions available however it all depends to what level you need protection.
These tools can often be configured to back up certain folders on your PC or Desktop Computer. Whilst this is ideal to back up files or folders, there are other utilities such as Acronis that can be used in order to do full machine or filesystem backups.
Many people do not actually know that although your e-mails are in the cloud, the storage is not guaranteed or backed up, so it’s necessary to have a way of backing up your mail files.
The only issue with backup up to a cloud service is that when it comes to a complete failiure, the process to get the machine back up and running with the correct files and programs could take some time, often it’s hours spent 1) reloading your operating system 2) restoring your files 3) reloading your programs 4) restoring all your configurations, program settings, favourites etc.
As an additional service, we can offer Acronis Cyber Protect, which essentially allows regular backups of client machines to be taken, and the process is super simple if there is a hardware failiure or an upgrade.
For example, if you get a new PC or your hard disc fails in your old machine, we can simply boot up your system from a memory stick, and within a couple of minutes, a complete copy of your previous system is implemented on your new fresh hardware. This is a huge time saver, and is always a recommended extra for busy businesses that can’t afford the downtime.
A disaster recovery plan is a must for any serious business. With the advent of cloud technology and clever backup solutions, it’s no longer an expensive item that forever sits on a wish list.
It’s a real life set of instructions and procedures for staff to follow if there is a major incident, and it also ensures that you take in to consideration any items that may interupt normal service.
A DR plan may contain some of the following items, however these can be adjusted depending on your specific business:
