Disaster Recovery

Data is your most VULNERABLE asset. Protect it today so you are prepared for tomorrow.

Disaster Recovery

Have you ever taken a moment to imagine what would happen if you lost some or all your computer files?

Most people tend to think computer files are lost only due to catastrophic events – like tornadoes and hurricanes. Don’t forget about slightly more common events, including fire, flood or computer viruses. A computer “disaster” does not necessarily have to be one from Mother Nature, either. Suppose you dropped your laptop down the stairs or spilled your coffee on the keyboard?

Losing personal files is devastating – while business owners who rely on content and files can consider the loss of data fatal to their business if they don’t have a data backup plan in place.

 

Talk to Us Before Disaster Strikes!

Just like many human health issues can be prevented with proper diet and care, having a complete backup plan in place can prevent disaster from occurring to your precious data. Data backup isn’t as complicated or expensive as you might believe. It is far easier to back up your files to be able to restore them after something damages your computer, than it is to recover them after disaster strikes. Consider a data backup plan to be your computer’s insurance policy!

 

Picking Up the Pieces

If you’ve already experienced the loss of data and you hadn’t backed up your data and files, you’ll need to use data recovery services to recover as much of the lost information as possible. Data recovery makes it possible to save some of the data from damaged, corrupted or failed storage devices, but it’s expensive, and you may never recover 100% of the data you’ve lost.

 

Data Backup and Recovery Solutions

Your best solution is to use a 2 tiered approach by backing up data remotely offsite, and  backing up systems locally in the form of an Cloned image. This will protect you against small and large scale disasters, and offer two separate backups.

Offsite Bckups

Backups offsite or to the cloud  will backup and store your data files and information at regularly scheduled intervals to an online data store accessed via the web. Your backed-up information can then be restored to any computer if your computer’s hard disk fails, or if it has been attacked by a virus, or physically damaged. Some people back up their files to CDs or flash drives – and then keep these storage devices in the same location as the computer. If there is a natural disaster, chances are the computer and the backup copies will be ruined.

Remote data backup services exist for both personal computer users and businesses of all sizes. Prices range from very reasonable to very expensive – based on how much storage you require and other factors. Prevention is the best medicine – give yourself peace of mind with a data backup insurance policy for your computer files.

Onsite Backups

Cloned image backups will backup and store your whole computer or server at regularly scheduled intervals to an locally accessible drive or network storage. Your backed-up image can then be restored to a new hard drive if your computer’s hard disk fails, or if it has been attacked by a virus, or physically damaged. This can save hours of time, eliminating unnecessary OS and software reinstalls and reconfiguration. It can take hours or even days to configure your computer to get it back to the state it was before your hard drive crashed. That’s if you have all software and  licensing ready and available. A cloned image can take less than an hour to restore, get you back and working.

If your Business depends on its Technology, you must have a comprehensive backup Solution!
