WOULD YOUR BUSINESS FUNCTION IF YOUR SERVER FAILED?

In today’s transaction-intensive world, Companies that can tolerate data loss between the time of their last backup and the time of a disaster are getting increasingly hard to find.  Would your business function if your Server failed?

System outages are both unpredictable and in many cases unavoidable, with serious consequences on the ability to do business.   Any downtime (whether planned or unplanned) can cause your Company to grind to a halt.

Disaster recovery is a critical part of business planning against the risk of fire, flood, theft and system failures.  Downtime costs money, and most Companies would cease to function without IT systems and data.

By having a business Disaster Recovery Service, you will be back up and running in hours, rather than days.

QUESTIONS TO ASK  

  1. How much would a disruption really cost you, not only in £’s but downtime too?
  2. Could you be without Services for any length of time?
  3. Have you planned what to do in the event of a Server failure?
  4. Would you lose data due to Server failure?
  5. Could you deal with Customer / Client inquiries?
