Data comes in many forms, which, if not adequately backed-up, could be lost in the event of something which causes a network to crash. 
 
Since data requirements for businesses grow on a daily basis, traditional back-up strategies are often insufficient; meaning that information may not be recoverable. 

 

What Is Back-up?


Back-up is copying your data to somewhere else. For example this could be onto back-up tapes, USB drive or memory stick, or onto a network drive of another device. Back-up programs can be installed onsite, or a Cloud solution can be used as for online automated/scheduled back-up.
 
It is important to have a back-up solution in place. Back-up protects your data in case of theft (a single laptop to office break-ins), employee accidents (deletion of an important file), or technical issues (crashed hard drive). With data backed-up, it can be easily accessed and restored.
 
To ensure your business has the back-up solution that meets its needs and IT environment, and is right for future growth, Direct Voice and Data offers a complete data protection solution for physical and virtual server environments. This can be through either a dedicated on premise solution or by adding cloud integration for ultimate protection.

 

What Is Disaster Recovery?


“Disaster” can come in various forms – but describes either an incident that means your day to day business premises are unusable (such as a fire or flood or utilities failure) or, at a more mundane level, server failures, virus attacks or data corruption.
If any one of these “disasters” occurred it would prevent your business operating for a time.

 

Why do I need a disaster recovery plan?


Without a disaster recovery plan (DRP) your business could be out of action until the problem was resolved. This may be days, weeks or even longer.
 
Such negative impact on a business can be avoided by creating a DRP.
