Backup & Disaster Recovery
Downtime costs your organisation money
Never lose a seconds work!
The ability of an organisation to recover from a disaster is directly related to the degree of Business Continuity Planning that has taken place BEFORE the disaster..
Backup planning is part of your Business Resilience plan
and System 5 can offer Backup solutions via various infrastructure options or the Cloud. Contact us to discuss the various options.
Working with System 5 we offer plenty of technologies that organisations can use to safeguard critical data while making sure all their other information is protected in a timely manner without breaking the bank.
A cog in your business continuity plan
Nearly all large enterprises have sophisticated Disaster Recovery plans in place. They create secondary sites in remote locations that come online if anything should go wrong with the primary data centre. They also replicate data so that additional copies are available should hardware fail. Finally, they also have Data Backups of everything, store tapes offsite and institute numerous other safeguards...
We offer cost-effective Small Business Solutions
In the past, Disaster Recovery was in the realm of the rich and famous - large entities that could cover the cost of supporting data protection activities with their size.
Working with System 5 we offer plenty of technologies that small businesses can use to safeguard critical data while making sure all their other information is protected in a timely manner without breaking the bank.
The 2011 SMB Disaster Preparedness Survey reveals that many SMBs are not taking advantage of this technology. The main reason:
- They do not understand the importance of disaster preparedness
- Half do not have a disaster recovery plan in place
- 41% said that it never occurred to them to put together a plan
- 40% stated that disaster preparedness was simply not a priority for them
The survey also found that, on-average, a small business experiences six computer outages a year - due mainly to:
- Cyber attacks
- Power outages
- Natural disasters
Cost is the problem
The problem many small businesses cite for lack of disaster recovery is cost. They don't have the funds to buy a second set of hardware and software to keep in a different location in the event of a catastrophe. Nor do they typically have the IT resources internally to do an adequate job of protecting their data and systems.
