However you use IT, our backup and recovery solutions can protect your data, your systems – and your business.
Power failures, hard disk crashes, energy disruption, cyber-attacks, fire or flood – any one of these could bring your IT systems down without notice. It’s vital to be prepared.The approach that’s right for you will depend on what your business does, how fast a recovery time you need, and, of course, on your budget. We’ll advise on what’s most appropriate.
What would you do if critical files disappeared? How long could your business last if your systems crashed completely? We can help you put plans in place both to keep data safe and sound and to minimise downtime in the event of a complete IT failure or a disaster at your office.
We’ll establish what areas of IT activity are most critical to your business and explain the most appropriate backup and recovery solutions. From simple scheduled data backups through to a complete system replica ready to take over instantly should disaster strike, we can provide a solution that balances business needs with the budget available.
With reliable backup and recovery solutions in place, you can relax knowing your business is protected. Depending on the approach you choose, you could soon be confident you can’t lose critical data, that customer-facing online services won’t collapse should disaster strike, or that you can pick up operations instantly from a new location should your office be out of action.
We can carry out a full review of your current backup and recovery solution and help you to address any areas that may require additional protection.

When your business suffers from a disaster it’s the speed of the recovery that will affect business operations and the potential loss of custom. Therefore, the correct disaster recovery solution is implemented that meets the specific needs of the business. Some businesses can cope for two or three days without access to their IT resource whereas others require immediate access to data in an offsite location. Each of our disaster recovery solutions and plans are tailored to your individual needs so that your business is correctly and adequately protected.
When considering business continuity with respect to IT, it is about your business’ ability to continue to operate without disruptions to its IT services. Where disaster recovery is about recovering from a disaster that has already taken place, business continuity is measures that are taken to prevent the disaster taking place in the first place and being adequately protected against that disaster. There are many forms that this can take: whether that is a server failover allowing you to continue to operate regardless of one server failing; to having an offsite replication service that takes place instantaneously, meaning your business can continue to operate regardless of what disasters strikes.
It is a common misconception that a backup protects your business in full. The reason for this is that a backup is often just a file backup taken daily, usually at the end of the day, to a USB hard disk or remote location of some description. The issue businesses have in the event of a disaster is that they are left with numerous files, often without all the configuration settings along with software installs etc, which means the business effectively must start again from scratch which can result in considerable downtime. In most cases a simple file backup is inadequate for most businesses.
