According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), roughly 40-60 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster. And if that’s not enough bad news, 90% of smaller companies fail within a year unless they can resume operations within 5 days.
How are you planning to get your computer systems restored and your employees back to work after a disaster occurs?
Whether it’s hardware failure, a cyber-attack, or a natural disaster that strikes your business, IT Decisions has a solution to protect your data and restore your productivity.
It’s absolutely vital that your backup solution includes an automated process that makes secure off-site copies of all of your critical data. This is the first and most important step towards protecting your business from data loss, downtime, and reputational harm.
Separate from a backup, replication makes direct copies of servers or critical data to another location, often in real-time. Replication is an ideal way to improve upon disaster recovery options and potentially put staff members back to work with zero downtime, depending on the type of replication solution in use.
A documented process that enables a business to take specific steps to recover and continue using vital IT systems in the event of a disaster is referred to as a disaster recovery plan. Off-site backups and replication solutions, along with routine audits and testing are typically core components of such a plan.
A business continuity plan covers all processes and procedures that are necessary to resume regular business operations during or after a disaster, and includes IT infrastructure and computer systems. For some organizations, such as healthcare providers and financial firms, business continuity planning is a legal requirement.
