Is Your Company Protected By A Business Continuity And Data Recovery Plan That Makes Sense?
Business Continuity and Data Recovery Plan
When auditing the technology plans and strategies of our client companies, Zephyr Networks often finds business continuity and data recovery plans that have atrophied. Why is this so often the case? When it comes to backup strategies and disaster recovery plans, they simply are not at the forefront of an everyday, weekly or even monthly awareness of most businesses. If your company is focused on the business of today and maintaining productivity levels, this outlook makes sense to Zephyr Networks. In fact, this outlook is exactly why so many Orange County companies choose to partner with us as a provider of their IT Solutions.
What is essential to understand is nothing can be more damaging to your company’s productivity and profitability than a lack of a workable business continuity and data recovery plan when a disaster hits. Whether it was Tropical Storm Sandy in New York or mud slides in Malibu or earthquakes in California, too many small to mid-sized businesses have been caught off guard by unexpected disasters. By working with Zephyr Networks, such unexpected happenings don’t have to become disasters for your company if the proper business continuity and data recovery plan is in place.
Disaster Recovery Questions To Ask
When Zephyr Networks works with a new client, we ask a lot of questions and access a lot of information to do the job right and the way a company owner wants it to be done. Among the questions we ask about business continuity and data recovery are the following:
- What is needed to update the business continuity and data recovery plan accordingly?
- Should we start replicating that virtual machine to preserve the data?
- How often should that server’s data be protected?
- Are virtual capabilities being used properly?
- Are all essential employees aware of the plan and their roles?
By asking these questions and more, Zephyr Networks helps your company develop and install a business continuity and data recovery plan that makes sense.
