Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery
When disaster strikes it can be detrimental to business. Downtime equals money and every minute lost adds up quickly.
Success Story: We worked with Datto to help a Michigan manufacturer succeed in data protection and business continuity
Downtime is not an option when it comes to servicing your customers. After manually backing up their system for years, the manufacturer was subject to data loss a number of times due to backup solutions that had failed. Their disk and tape solution eventually ran out of space, and the manual process wasn’t done properly. Of course, without a valid backup, there can be no recovery, and certainly no business continuity.

A business continuity plan includes companywide procedures and policies to ensure your business keeps moving seamlessly, no matter the incident.
A disaster recovery plan is a set of procedures that restores the IT portion of your business after a disaster. Regular backups keep your documents, files, databases, e-mail, images, etc. protected in the event of a system failure. Offsite backups are often a significant part of this plan. To understand how a disaster recovery plan works – it’s important to understand RPO and RTO.
RPO or Recovery Point Objective is simply, how much data are you willing to lose?
RTO or Recovery Time Objective is simply, how long are you willing to be down?
