DISASTER RECOVERY

Guaranteed Access to your Data – even in a Crisis

Information is integral to the successful running and growth of your business, and quick access to it in the event of a major incident will be key to your continued success.

ITCS Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS)

Historically, the main risks to businesses have been through fire/flood/theft etc.

However, with the world getting smaller in IT terms, Cybercrime on the increase, and your data getting larger it’s time to re-think your approach to data backup and recovery. Traditional on-site backup and recovery models still have their place, but have their limitations:

  • Backup once per day (single recovery point per day)

  • Manual swapout of backup media (point of failure if not managed correctly)

  • Full recovery may be time consuming (Recovery Time Objective)

  • Backup device hardware failure (Recovery Point Objective may not be met)

  • Risk of media not available (recovery may not be possible if all recovery media destroyed in the event of major fire at your premises).

Disaster Recovery As a Service – ITCS Private Cloud backup

Cloud back up and recovery services have many advantages and can be easily customised to your business needs.

  • Onsite backup – multiple backups per day, minimising data loss in the event of major incident

  • Cloud backup – Data replication to private cloud solution to ensure your data is safe in the event of a total loss at site.

  • Server Virtualisation – In the event of a major incident, your virtual server can be launched in our cloud services giving you access to your business information with minimal downtime

  • UK Private Cloud Storage – If you are bound by data sovereignty laws, you can be assured that your data will remain compliant

  • Cost effective and flexible solutions to fit all sizes of business and recovery objectives, move costs to Opex model (monthly charge) rather than capital expenditure of expensive solutions.

When disaster strikes, downtime can be expensive, and your hard earned reputation can be damaged. Disaster Recovery as a Service is designed to prevent this.

  • Recovery time objective (How much down time can you afford?)
