So you have a disaster Recovery plan? Are you sure?

Posted by Nidhi Savla on Mon, Apr 02, 2018 @ 09:42 AM

If your company relies on IT to get the job done, you need a disaster recovery plan. You might even think you have one. But are you sure it’s strong enough to be effective?

 

A disaster recovery plan isn’t simply a hard drive with backed  up data. It’s not even a backup system: it’s a total information and service recovery process that gets your business back online as quickly as possible. True disaster recovery ensures that you can continue to serve customers, retaining full access to data management systems like your CRM and ERP and working with up-to-the-minute customer data while your primary IT system is repaired and brought back online. No “cold site” data backup system can provide that kind of restorative service as soon as your system goes down. At best, you’ll get recent copies of files you’ve been editing, and little more.
