Is your data secure? Would it survive a disaster? Can you afford to take a chance?
Any seasoned computer technician will tell you, there are two types of hard drives - those that have failed and those that will fail. The only question is when. What's required is a robust Disaster Recovery Plan which offers you peace of mind knowing all of your data is continuously archived, redundant, and ready to restore at a moment's notice, even after a major disaster.
Don't Underestimate the Importance of your Data
Your company's data is one of its most valuable assets
Do you know what you would do if you couldn't access your data?
What would happen if your server couldn't be accessed?
Could your business cope with a major disaster?
These are just some of the questions that all business owners should ask themselves as they are crucial to any business surviving a significant issue.
Over 80% of businesses don't have a reliable backup solution. That means 80% of all businesses aren't protecting one of their most valuable assets - their data.
Think about it, your company's data is the culmination of your entire staff's work over the years. The cost of restoring data on a malfunctioning hard drive is astronomical and never guaranteed (hey, when it's broke, it's broke!). We've all heard the horror stories; but ask yourself, how secure are your backups? What would you do if you could gain access to your place of work?
Regardless of your type of business, your data is vital. You have invaluable, irreplaceable information to which you need access at any given moment; information that is constantly being changed and updated.
This is not just backup... this is Disaster Recovery.
Sleep well knowing your data is ALWAYS safe
Often, business owners are well aware of the fundamental necessity of data backup. If you've suffered from data loss, then you already know its value. Whether you use tape drives to regularly backup your server, or another type of external storage, you know that the costs of the backup device are well worth it, tenfold. However, data loss still amounts to massive downtime as you wait for the backup to be restored. Wouldn't you rather it only took minutes away from your productivity, instead of hours or days?
Our bullet-proof system not only backs up your data every fifteen minutes, but in the event of a server malfunction, it can assume the role of that server, while still performing incremental backups. This means your network is still up while your server is being fixed and parts are being ordered. Don't think of it as merely a data backup solution, but as a complete fail-safe for your servers.

Business Continuity Planning (BCP)
It is vital that every business has an idea what it will do in case of a disaster. There are many different levels of disaster ranging from a fire on-premise; lose of data; lose of broadband; your business is the victim of a crime, etc.
The Business Continuity Plan (BCP) is a comprehensive organizational plan that the following five component plans:
Business Resumption Plan
Occupant Emergency Plan
Continuity of Operations Plan
Incident Management Plan
Disaster Recovery Plan
The first four plans (Business Resumption, Occupant Emergency, Continuity of Operations and Incident Management Plans) do not deal with the IT infrastructure directly. Inettek can assist you in the creation of these plans documenting the procedures you would have in place if disaster strikes and how your business can continue to trade during such a difficult time.
Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP)
A Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) is a documented process or set of procedures to recover and protect a business IT infrastructure in the event of a disaster. Such plan, ordinarily documented in written form, specifies procedures an organization is to follow in the event of a disaster. It is a comprehensive statement of consistent actions to be taken before, during and after a disaster.
As part of your overall Business Continuity Planning we would always advise that you have a Disaster Recovery Plan in place and Inettek will help you document this.
We hope these plans are never required but it's prudent business sense to ensure that you are protected against any such eventuality should it ever happen to you.
