Disasters can happen to any business at any time, to any business. But being prepared makes all the difference and that’s where backup disaster recovery services come in.
One event could result in widespread data loss and the disclosure of personal information, resulting in unneeded downtime and risking your customers' trust as well as your reputation.
Whether it's a hardware failure or a ransomware attack, you need to be able to recover your important data quickly and effortlessly.
Disaster recovery (DR) refers to a plan or process to quickly recover your applications, data, and resources in the event of an outage or disaster.
A disaster recovery plan aims to protect an organisation from the effects of an outage or a disaster - either man-made or natural - like a tornado or cyberattack. To avoid significant disruption to your normal business operations, a disaster recovery plan strives to maintain vital functions before, during, and after a disaster occurs.
With cloud backup systems, your organisation's data is protected via cloud-based backup systems using a web-based management panel, and the backups are transmitted through the internet to a secure location.
When using cloud backup data systems, there is no need for onsite equipment or infrastructure investment.
Backups may be started from anywhere using any computer, tablet, or smartphone, and they can be created in the cloud as often as needed, minimizing data losses in disaster situations.
A local backup removes the need for third parties to access data and offers organisations physical control over their data backup. It also doesn't rely on an Internet connection.
Small to midsize businesses may find this to be a cost-effective choice, but it does involve an initial capital investment in infrastructure and hardware.
Having a backup is only one aspect of disaster recovery. It also includes having a strategy and technical solution in place that will keep your company's essential operations running in the event of a catastrophe.
You must first determine the critical systems needed to maintain business continuity in the event that a malicious incident like a cyber-attack or a natural disaster knocks your regular infrastructure offline before you can design a disaster recovery strategy (DR plan).
At Swiftcomm, we make sure that your disaster recovery plan includes the following:
• Identifying the key systems critical to your business functions
• Determining how long your business can function when a key system is offline
• Determining how much data your organisation can afford to go without
• Deciding when and how your DR plan should kick in
There are many different types of disaster recovery options. Some can automatically take over when the primary system fails, while others are excellent at restoring systems from backups.
