Backup Disaster Recovery
An information technology disaster recovery plan (IT DRP) should be developed in conjunction with the business continuity plan. Technology recovery strategies should be developed to restore hardware, applications and data in time to meet the needs of the business recovery.
Businesses large and small create and manage large volumes of electronic information or data. Some data is vital to the survival and continued operation of the business. Data can be lost, corrupted, compromised or stolen through hardware failure, human error, hacking and malware and could result in significant business disruption. A plan for data backup and restoration of electronic information is essential.
Developing a data backup strategy begins with identifying what data to backup, selecting and implementing hardware and software backup procedures, scheduling and conducting backups and periodically validating that data has been accurately backed up. The plan should include regularly scheduled backups from wireless devices, laptop computers and desktop computers to a network server. Data on the server can then be backed up. The frequency of backups, security of the backups and secure off-site storage should be addressed in the plan.
Powermellon offers online data backup services including storage in the “cloud”. This is a cost-effective solution for small and medium sized businesses. We ensure all software installed on the client server or computer is automatically backed up in order for the business to be back up and running as soon as possible after a disaster.
We consult with you to discuss your specific business data needs. This gives us the needed information to ensure that data is backed up as frequently as necessary to ensure that, if data is lost, it is not unacceptable to the business.
