WHAT IS DISASTER RECOVERY?
When you live in an area that’s prone to tornados, flooding and ice storms, disaster recovery and business continuity plans are a must.
Disaster recovery plans act as your instruction manual in times of crisis. Did you find out there was a data breach on your servers? Did a tornado wipe out your storage unit with all of your archived files? Disaster recovery plans help you determine the steps you’ll need to take to make sure your business can get back on track. Business continuity plans, on the other hand, are immediate plans for keeping your business operational. It helps you determine the immediate necessities for you and your employees to continue serving your customers. When created properly, they can make sure your business comes back from a disaster stronger than ever.
Business continuity means different things for different businesses. For some, it's just being able to get access to their data and phone systems after a disaster. For others, it means complete continuity of service, even in the middle of a crisis. Our goal is to make sure you are always able to work with your customers. How quickly you get back to fully functioning is up to you. We can create a solution that allows you to be back up and running in days or seconds.
You don’t know what you don’t know. That’s why proactive plans are so important. If something were to happen to your business or your data, would you know that all of your data was still available? Would you be able to set up a temporary work space if yours was destroyed? If you are proactively planning for the worst, the outcome will always be the best.

DATA BACKUP & RESTORATION
The most important asset to your business is your data. It tells you who your customers are, what they want, how you’ll meet their needs and the timeline you need to keep. That’s why data backups have to be an integral part of your disaster recovery and business continuity plans. You have to have a way to access your customers’ information, especially when a disaster strikes. We work with TierPoint – an expert data center service provider – to make sure that your data stays secure at all times.
Email has now become our primary form of internal and external communication.
