Here’s a sobering thought: 92% of companies have encountered at least 1 disruption to their business systems. Our goal is to make sure you’re in the undisrupted 8% with XBASE’s Disaster Recovery solution. Any disruption is potentially a disaster for your business. The Institute for Business and Home Safety estimates that 1 in 4 businesses that close because of a disaster will not reopen.
Mother Nature gets most of the attention when we think of disaster recovery -- hurricanes, blizzards (especially here in Canada), tornados, and earthquakes all quickly spring to mind. And they are, obviously, real threats. But they distract attention from more common threats like power failure, network outage, and hardware failure. ANY disruption to your business – caused by nature, a hacker, or a negligent or disgruntled employee – needs to be planned for so that you can continue business operations.
Now, you could be one of the lucky 8% who haven’t experienced a business disruption. You could continue to trust in luck. But a better option is to develop a disaster recovery plan.
We provide enterprise-level disaster recovery solutions as a cloud service to the SMB marketplace. Disaster recovery is a natural extension of our managed IT services and backup solutions -- it shouldn’t be an add-on afterthought, but an integrated service.
We provide a range of services to meet our clients’ specific requirements. Our solutions range in complexity from simple offsite tape storage, remote backups, and remote replication to “live” server clustering -- depending on recovery time objectives (RTOs).
XBASE maintains multiple Tier 3 data centers, all interconnected by a self-healing 10Gb/s fiber optic ring. Using CISCO network and technologies from our partners VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, and Zertos, redundancy and recoverability is built into our disaster recovery solution.
Having a plan will take some time and effort. Not having a plan could expose you to legal risk, leaving your business unable to function for days, weeks, or even months -- or even lead to business failure.
It’s time for you to get started on your disaster recovery plan and ensure your business’s continuity in the event of a natural disaster or other business disruption.
Small- to medium-sized businesses (SMBs) often find themselves on the leading edge when it comes to adopting new technology. SMBs can quickly roll out the latest applications, try cloud based solutions or, take advantage of BYOD and other trends. While this agility can give the SMB a competitive advantage, it can also dramatically increase the complexity of their environment, especially when it comes to Disaster Recovery Planning.
The old standards like tape backup and offsite storage are no longer a suitable means of safeguarding an organization when disaster strikes. With greater reliance on technology, comes greater scrutiny from stakeholders to regulators on an organization’s ability to quickly recover from a disruption and get back to normal operations.
