Disaster Recovery

Disaster Recovery (DR) in IT is often used but incorrectly understood term. It is very important to have a Disaster Recovery strategy for every business. Many people believe that Data Backup equals Disaster Recovery.

So, let us understand the difference between Backup & Disaster Recovery.

A Backup is a copy of your data on another device or in another location.

Disaster Recovery is different. If your Primary IT Site goes down for any reason, a Disaster Recovery Site will let you run your entire IT system until your primary environment is up. So, we see that it is very different as compared to Data Backup.

A sound backup strategy combined with the right approach to Disaster Recovery, means you have your Business Continuity covered.

5 Reasons Why You Need a Disaster Recovery Plan

1. Natural Disasters:

Storms, fires, and floods can all do irreparable damage to your business. Without a disaster recovery plan in place, you may find it extremely difficult to resume operations, putting the future of your company at risk.

2. Hardware Failure:

Whether from a power surge or other cause, if your hardware fails it can take all your data with it.

3. Human Errors:

No one is perfect, and that includes you and your employees. Forgetting to save changes, accidentally deleting an important document, or flipping the wrong switch could lead to a significant loss for your company.

4. Cyber Crimes:

Cyber Crimes are on the rise and most businesses are affected at some point. A virus or ransomware attack could hold your data hostage, grinding your business to a halt and causing massive losses. Your disaster recovery plan should include steps to recover from a hacking attempt, keeping your data safe and accessible.

5. Customer Service:

You need a disaster recovery plan to provide your customers the service they have come to expect from you. If your business were to shut down, or has a prolonged service interruption, you could lose valuable customers to a competitor. The faster you can get back on your feet, the happier your clients will be.
