Disaster Recovery Services: Protect Your Business from Costly Disruptions

If you start researching disaster recovery services when you already need them, you’re probably too late. But if you make a business continuity plan ahead of time, you’ll enable your organization to continue to thrive when many of your competitors are struggling to restore lost data, revive damaged systems, and rebuild relationships with dissatisfied customers.

Lining up your disaster recovery services today can give you an edge tomorrow – no matter what tomorrow brings. Ask Key Consultants about our disaster recovery services and remote computer backup.

Building a Business Continuity Plan
After meeting with you and listening carefully to your needs, Key Consultants can help you focus your business continuity plan around three important objectives:

  1. Restore Time Objective (RTO). Your RTO is the amount of time you’re willing to wait to regain access to your systems and data after a power outage, natural disaster, or other major disruption occurs.
  2. Restore Point Objective (RPO). Your RPO represents the amount of data you can afford to lose as access is restored. RTO and RPO require a tradeoff: the more data you want to be able to restore, the longer it will take to get your systems up and running after a disaster.
  3. Budget. Your company has a finite amount of money available for disaster recovery services and remote computer backup. Key Consultants will help you make the best use of this budget while keeping your RTO and RPO in mind.

Backing Up Your Data
What’s the best way to prepare for a major business disruption? Key Consultants recommends implementing a data backup strategy and putting technology in place to support it. We can help you choose between data backup options such as:

  • External hard drive backups. Even users with a low level of technical proficiency can use these devices to back up data by way of a USB cable. External hard drives are a good choice for very small companies.
  • Tape backups. Companies looking for an economical way to back up business data often perform nightly tape backups. In the event of a disaster, they can simply upload the previous day’s data to a server and resume working.
  • Remote storage sites. Storing your external hard drives, tapes, or other storage media in remote sites will minimize the risk that your stored data will be wiped out along with your network.
  • Redundant systems. Redundant servers can run parallel to your live servers and back up data as your employees work – but they require a larger investment.
  • Online backups. Cloud-based data backup services often provide a simple, cost-effective backup option.
  • Remote backups. Want the utmost security? Consider backing up data to a remote data center directly over a landline.
