If bad weather has shut down where you live and your office is inaccessible, but you need to do some work for your key client, what do you do?
You need to consider two factors when putting a disaster recovery plan together, these two factors are survivable downtime and cost. We can discuss the impact these factors will have on your IT network.
This is easy, how long can your business survive without access to important business systems. Having a good disaster recovery plan is about keeping your business running as if nothing has happened at all. Think about a disaster that might happen and the impact that it will have on clients and customers, what would happen to them if you lost access to the internet, server data or your entire office. Once you know how your clients and customers will be affected by losing these functions you can then start thinking of how long you can go without these.
Once you know the answer to these questions you can then discuss with us, so we can start to put systems in place to meet your targets.
Everyone always goes to the cheapest option to try and save some money but think about it, the cost of your disaster recovers isn’t just how much you pay to recover everything, it’s about how much your reputation is worth. What would happen if you missed an order or a deadline, how much do your employees cost if they don’t have the right tools for the job? This is what you need to think about when putting together your disaster recovery plan.
