Our Business Continuity Solution Provides

Disaster Preparedness and Reliability

A downtime or data loss event should not be the first time you use a BDR solution. The only way to protect your business from the risks associated with data disaster is to implement a BDR solution today, because it gives you a reliable safety net to fall back on. Not only will quick and frequent backups limit data loss, but having a proper recovery process in place can help mitigate other damages in the long run. Even in the face of unpredictable events, you can rest assured that you’ll have a reliable solution in place whenever you need it.

Recoverability

The ability to resume operations quickly while swiftly regaining access to files and data could be the difference between recovering after a disaster, or closing your doors for good. A strong BDR solution allows you to convert a backup into a running system in a matter of seconds, which will maximize your chances of a successful recovery. With our solution, we’re able to simulate and test a coordinated disaster recovery scenario, ensuring all the necessary technology is in place, personnel is trained, procedures are implemented and data is restored as fast as possible.

Accessibility

A true business continuity solution goes beyond just traditional backup. While it’s important that your business data stays safe and intact, it’s critical that you’re able to recover that data should a disaster scenario occur. Our BDR solution leverages the cloud, meaning that your data is also stored offsite and able to be virtually brought back up. When the virtual server is deployed, your data will be easily accessible and your systems will be up and running again quickly, minimizing downtime and helping your business keep moving forward.
