A Network Disaster Recovery Plan is Needed Before the Storm

by | Aug 9, 2016 | Business Continuity

Do you have a solid network disaster recovery plan?

The storm rages outside, and you watch as your business continues as usual. Proposals are being made, emails are being sent, important data is being stored and generated into vital reports. Suddenly, with a crack of thunder and a flash of lightning, the power goes out and you’re left wondering if all your unfinished business is safe or, at the very least, retrievable. If you haven’t developed your network disaster recovery plan, you could be in trouble.

The development and implementation of a network disaster recovery plan may sound like complicated process, but it’s far less complicated than trying to recover or replicate lost data after disaster strikes. A hybrid, cloud-based backup system like those offered by Datto could be the answer for your business. Cloud-based backup allows you to access your important files, data, and email accounts, even when you are unable to connect to your server from your location. Your important information can be accessed both locally and via the cloud technology, so your business continuity remains, even during a crisis.

Know when to seek help

While it’s great to know that such options exist, it’s also important to be able to contact experts in this technology who can assist you in structuring a disaster recovery plan that will insure the timely backup of your data, as well as the security of your information. You don’t have to be a technological wizard to get the backup your business deserves.
