Disaster Recovery Plan: A Plan Within a Plan

Disaster Recovery Plan: A Plan Within a Plan

disaster recovery plan goes beyond just securing data should a breach or an unexpected total shutdown of a company’s IT system occur. Essential and necessary is the managed backup and recovery methods in case of disaster. Data priority and protection, vital system’s relevance and other factors immediately impact the recovery efforts. Solutions necessarily take the shape of prioritizing, while providing assurance to company clients that their information is secure and IT operations can continue smoothly.

A clear understanding of how the system works provides the best explanation.

Having a cloud over you these days, means something positive. Fully managed recovery requires invoking pre-planned procedures to assure data viability and essential system’s restoration. The backup of data to a local appliance first occurs. This allows for replication offsite to the cloud. The precursor involves certified technicians. They take daily control over client’s backups, managing the key services that are unique to each IT provider’s clients. With a direct approach, our technicians manage, monitor, and verify client data, making sure it is secure and viable beyond the disruption point.

The additional plus provides continuity in business operations — also cloud based.

Once a disaster occurs and systems fail, the first thought is to protect the client’s data. Using a private network in the cloud, the client’s entire site is immediately accessible. Now appearing as virtual machines, the client experiences a near seamless break in business activity.

This approach circumvents the historic use of hardware-oriented solutions. The insurance and assurance of technology "Born in the Cloud,"  enhances confidence in the managed recovery system. Not designed to support the cloud, the technology is inherent to the cloud.

Using a Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) platform further enhances data security and comprehensive end-to-end IT data protection.

During the recovery process, all backups use a centrally located appliance. Through remote access, initiation of common tasks is easy to implement. Protection of machines can quickly occur, allowing for restoration of files and folders through the virtual machines in the cloud. The ability to adjust retention settings during the managed process of recovery provides more protection capabilities.

The RMM also enables NOC technicians wider capabilities. With direct access, our technicians gain immediate access to secured machines and seek solutions to issues with a broader view of the problems.
