Today’s business world is rapidly moving, and utterly reliant on tech, which is why it’s absolutely critical for companies to prepare for any potential disaster in advance by putting a disaster recovery plan in place to act as a form of insurance. Creating backups and simple IT data recovery isn’t enough when your staff are relying on your systems to do their job; you must have disaster recovery in place.
At Connected Platforms, we assist your business in creating and delivering a disaster recovery solution. We provide near-instant access to data and applications which are critical to the functioning of your business, making potential disasters less of a catastrophe.
What is IT Disaster Recovery?
IT disasters can arise in all forms, and when they happen, they can be catastrophic to your business. Whether you were affected by the Brisbane floods of 2011, if you lost critical systems due to a tropical cyclone in North Queensland or if you have been catastrophically hacked in the past; these are all examples of disaster recovery and are scenarios that your business must be prepared for.
If you have a backup of data in place, ready for IT data recovery, this isn’t going to cut it in a disaster situation. Disaster recovery is a way to prepare for anything from a natural disaster through to a hack or data attack in such a way that allows you to resume mission-critical function swiftly and efficiently without losing business operation or revenue. A disaster recovery plan outlines the action you need to take and the processes your business will follow to get back to full operation as quickly as possible.
Our Planning Process
Instead of worrying about what the future might hold and trying to protect your system against threats, we believe in taking a multi-faceted approach and implementing comprehensive disaster recovery solutions in addition to protection. That way, if something does happen, you can face it head on, knowing that your business is going to recover swiftly.
When we get started with you as a new client, we spend some time with you to strategically develop a customised IT Disaster Recovery Plan. That way, we have an understanding of what your business wants and can develop the most cost-effective way to deliver it.
We believe in giving you everything you need and nothing you don’t so you never pay for more than what your business requires for smooth and efficient operation.
Here is what our process looks like:
Draw up an assessment of every process dependent on IT services and the environment.
Identify and categorise your IT application portfolio to include your Service Level Objectives.
Explain the differences between IT Disaster Recovery and Business Stability and Continuity.
Provide the training and information your business needs to get everyone who is needed mobilised.
