Backup & Disaster Recovery
Get your backup in place, before you wish you had...
Keep your business safe, with the right backup solution
At some point the brown stuff will hit the fan. The good news is, if you're prepared to plan for that, the fall out doesn't need to be nuclear.
With the right computer backups to suit your business, it should be simple and easy to get you up and running again.
It doesn't matter if you have your own server, have a cloud based system or simply run a few computers - you need some kind of backup. Fact.
Typical problems which result in a backup system saving the day...
Computer Hardware failure
You don't expect your car to run forever. Don't expect anything different from computer hardware. It will fail eventually, it's simply made of electronic components and mechanical devices. When you do suffer a server, computer or laptop failure, whilst this may cause a short term problem, it shouldn't cause a long term business problem. Your backup system should be able to get you back up and running with minimal fuss.
Computer viruses and malware
This threat has become more and more common. There is always someone who downloads that dodgy file, opens that fake email attachment or clicks on that fake website link. The result of this can be your company data becoming encrypted and therefore inaccessible. With the right solution in place though, this should be a case of rolling back to before the problem. No fuss, no drama, no major business disruption.
We've been to flooded offices, and seen the clean up operation in progress. Thankfully when it comes to the computer side of things and company data, it can all be backed up automatically offsite every day. Whilst it might be an issue sourcing new carpets and furniture, within a few hours we can have all of your data restored to a loan computer (because we're nice like that).
Whilst we're all getting fancier alarms, CCTV and motion detectors - there is always someone looking to ruin your day and steal from you. Whilst this causes many problems, one thing that shouldn't be a problem is getting your company data back and accessible in no time. Again this is all thanks to automatic offsite backups which protects your business from such events.
"Oh no...I've just deleted the accounts folder..."
It's OK. We get it. Accidents happen. It's Monday morning and you're yet to have your morning Coffee (aka rocket fuel) and have accidentally deleted that critical folder. This should never be a major problem. With all of our backup solutions we can get it restored, normally in just a few minutes. Away you go again and your boss in none the wiser, and we're deemed to be super heroes. Good times.
We know what you're thinking..."It will never happen to me", "What are the chances?" and "It will be ok"... The reality is, when something has gone wrong you'll be thinking "I wish I'd had a backup in place", "We really need a backup in the future", "I wish I knew about the potential failures".
Our advice (as you'd expect, but this really isn't a sales pitch - it's based on facts), is to have something in place to protect your business, and know what the plan is when that unexpected turn of events becomes a reality.
