What happens if you come into the office and find the server room flooded, as was the case for one of our clients? A business continuity plan covers all possible eventualities from data loss, prolonged power failures or internet outages and acts as a road map for the business to ensure they have the right solutions in place should the worst happen. If it does, there’s a ready-made plan to follow.
Every organisation should regularly review and adapt its disaster recovery and business continuity strategy. Here are three challenging questions that your business should consider:
- Will your organisation keep operating in the event of a serious incident or disaster?
- How would unplanned downtime of your IT infrastructure affect business?
- What is your disaster recovery plan to mitigate these risks and does it actually work?
The growing dependence on access to technology 24/7 continues to spread into all aspects of the work place. The reliance on business-critical information, productivity tools, email and communication systems is ever increasing. IT Champion can prepare your organisation for unforeseen circumstances and help you to develop and test your business continuity strategy.
Virtualisation & The Cloud
The most robust and flexible business continuity plans utilise virtualisation and cloud computing technology for high availability. We specialise in helping businesses to use these tools to create a more agile IT infrastructure and strengthen their disaster recovery capabilities.
Data Backup & Replication
With nearly all business information now stored on computer networks, effective data storage, backup and recovery procedures are critical to your business and should be a primary component of your disaster recovery plan. IT Champion offer an extensive range of fast and reliable backup and replication solutions that can protect your valuable data.
Office Space & Equipment
In the event of a serious disaster that obstructs access to your premises we can help to arrange a work area recovery service by offering temporary work space, equipment and communication services. These facilities are supplied directly by our local and international industry partners to ensure continuity of service and enable your critical operations to be reestablished quickly.
DR Testing & Validation
Once you have established a business continuity and disaster recovery plan it should be fully tested, otherwise there’s a risk that it won’t work at a critical time. IT Champion can help you to validate and test your plans, even if it’s just to check that backup services are working correctly and that data can be restored.
