As unfortunate as it may be, the risks of an IT disaster are ever present, no matter how meticulous your maintenance routines are. From hardware failure, to site damage or total loss of infrastructure
What is your disaster recovery plan?
In the event of a failure or loss of equipment, a planned disaster recovery method will be able to restore your business' core functions and keep trade operational. A disaster recovery plan should specify which systems are essential and how they can be restored and accessed in varying levels of disaster. A good disaster recovery plan should outline the targeted restore time for lost data or systems.
With a effective and well rehearsed disaster recovery plan behind your business, you can sell your services to customers with the confidence that regardless of unfortunate circumstances you can fulfil your business obligations and continue to serve. Furthermore, being able to provide a documented procedure can be used to satisfy auditors and prospective clients for your business.
The Simplex approach to disaster recovery starts by determining the critical systems - such as phone systems, domain controllers, core business systems- which are integral to your business operations. We ensure that these essential systems are backed up following the 3-2-1 backup methodology, with the offsite backup being stored in our secure, high availability repository.
In a scenario of 'complete loss of hardware' we have a standby virtual platform to which we can restore our customer's offsite data and make it available on site, or host in our 'hot site' so that your business activity can resume whilst we help to source replace equipment or a new facility is available. This unique approach gives you the reassurance that no matter what happens, your operation will not be jeopardised.
