Plan for Business Continuity before you need Disaster Recovery
Here at Ancero we emphasize planning ahead with a business continuity solution that takes backup and data recovery to the next level. Backup that encompasses Intelligent Business Continuity (IBC) ensures that data can be recovered as quickly as possible in the event of a disaster, and that businesses can even continue normal operations while a disaster is happening. With IBC businesses are assured of automated backup verification, continuous protection, secured storage, fast recovery, and more. With the importance of computers and technology in day-to-day business, it is critical that every organization has a complete solution to deal with the threat of data loss and continuity of operations. Traditional backup methods such as tape and disk are insufficient at protecting businesses from the crippling and costly effects of downtime. Our Ancero Backup and Data Recovery or Ancero BDR, is a comprehensive solution that incorporates every important aspect of IBC.
70% of businesses that suffer a serious data loss are out of business in two years. –Datto, Inc.
In the past, companies have backed up their data using magnetic tapes which were then typically stored off-site. While a suitable method for incrementally backing up data off-site, this process is tedious and time-consuming. For small businesses without a dedicated IT staff, maintaining an up-to- date tape library can be easily overlooked and can result in permanent data loss.
Small to medium businesses can suffer severe repercussions if their critical data is not securely backed up at an off-site location. A natural disaster, fire, power surge, hardware failure, or even basic operator error can wipe out years of data. According to IDC (a leading market research firm), less than 40% of all small to medium-sized businesses properly and regularly backup their data. These businesses cannot afford to lose time attempting to rebuild their lost, vital information.
To quickly recover from hardware failures, viruses, or accidental deletion, it is important to have an on-site backup in addition to the off-site copy. This backup allows businesses to quickly recover from data loss due to common causes. When creating a business continuity plan, it’s important to take both on-site and off-site backup into consideration.
