Business continuity encompasses the planning, processing and procedures you put in place to ensure that your business remains operational in the case of a serious incident or disaster. A Business Continuity Plan (BCP) will include an impact analysis to identify business critical processes and applications and the services which support them and the associated recovery plan.
We work with our clients to assist define the impact analysis and design and implement IT services which can support the business needs in the event of an incident or disaster.
Often, we only think about widespread natural disasters when we design our Business Continuity Plan, but in reality data loss and service disruption is more likely to occur from other factors, such as human error, fire, or floods.
Disaster RecoveryWill it really be a disaster, or are you prepared?
Disaster Recovery (DR) is the replication of vital systems to another site to allow the continuation of critical business functions in the event of disaster, whether it be natural or man-made. A DR plan states under what conditions systems should failover to a predetermined DR site so that business may continue.
- Control -Have the policies and procedure in place to manage and control your data and systems in the event of a disaster
- Continue business -Recover critical functions so that business may continue
- Cloud recovery -Cost effective options available for Disaster Recovery in the cloud
High AvailabilityKeep systems up with reduced downtime
High Availability is the balancing of workloads between servers or databases to improve availability, which in turn reduces downtime. If a server fails (making it “unavailable”), the data or applications on that server automatically failover to another server so as not to interrupt user experience.
- Eliminate single points of failure -If one component fails, the entire system does not fail
- Reduce downtime -higher availability improves uptime
- Better maintenance -shift workloads to another server to lessen or remove maintenance interruptions
- Cloud availability -leverage the power of the cloud to achieve high availability
BackupStore copies of your data
Backup is the process of copying data automatically at predetermined time intervals and storing it so that it may be recovered if lost or corrupted. You can recover to your last backup or recover to a specific point in time by choosing one of your previous backups.
- Combine -Use backups as part of your overall all Disaster Recovery Plan
- Control -manage where, how, and for how long copies of your data are stored
- Cloud backup -Reduce stress and costs by backing up to the cloud
