When Your Backup Strategy Fails You Could be Out of Business!

Does your Backup Strategy keep you safe 24 x 7?

When you can’t access the “information” in your Information Technology Systems, you are for all practical purposes Out of Business! 

It is a 24 x 7 world and your IT systems need to be available all day, every day, no matter what. If your backup strategy is not working as it should – Like you think it is! You are in for some real trouble!

Does your backup strategy include redundant offsite or cloud based storage, rapid recovery, data mirroring or other important aspects of a full strategy?

How long you are out of business depends on how well you have planned for outages and what kind of recovery systems you have in place.

You know the harsh reality of how dependent your business is on systems and when they are down for even a few minutes, it costs you real money.

Management and customers do not want excuses.  They want the information they need and they want it now.

When was the last time you tested your backup strategy to see if you could actually recover everything you need?  How long did it take?  What would have happened to your customer service and your employees while you were trying to recover?

Have you built your IT Systems in such a way hat you know before something is about to go wrong?  Do you have any real time alerts built in?

If your CRM system goes off line and your sales team is not able to access the people they are supposed to be calling, “you are out of business!”
