Do you have a backup plan for when things don’t work?
Is your data secure? Would it survive a disaster? Can you afford to take a chance?
Any seasoned IT person will tell you, there are two types of hard drives – those that have failed and those that will fail. The only question is when. With Rocky Knoll Technologies’ Business Continuity Plan, you can have 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.
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? You have insurance on your office, vehicles, equipment and even wrongful termination, but do you have insurance on your data?
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.
Not just backup… this is Business Continuity
This is more than just DATA.
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 as often as 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. We call it the Backup/Disaster Recovery Device (BDR). When your server is repaired or replaced, regardless of the new hardware, the BDR Device can perform a bare metal install to make your infrastructure in-house redundant once more.
We also work with you to identify critical pieces of IT infrastructure for your business and develop plans to continue business when they are unavailable. What would you do if you lost access to your office, phone system and key business applications?
