25% of firms
closed by disaster
will never reopen.

Most companies believe that their data is covered in the event of a natural disaster... 1 in 4 will pay the price!

Here’s a sobering thought: 92% of companies have encountered at least one disruption to their business systems. Our goal is to make sure you’re in the undisrupted 8% with XBASE’s Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) in Toronto. 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. A disaster recovery strategy is a natural extension of our managed IT services and backup solutions—it shouldn’t be an add-on afterthought, but an integrated service.

Every client's needs are unique, so we provide a range of “Exponentially Better™” Disaster Recovery services to meet our clients’ specific requirements:

  • Remote backups
  • Remote replication
  • "Live" server replication—depending on recovery time objectives (RTOs)
  • Offsite tape storage

For your peace-of-mind, redundancy and recoverability is built into the disaster recovery plan (DRP) we include in your plan:

  • XBASE maintains multiple Tier 3 data centres
  • Data centres are interconnected by a self-healing 10Gb/s fiber optic ring
  • State-of-the-art Cisco network
  • The latest technologies from our partners VMware, Microsoft, Citrix, and Zertos

Having a disaster recovery strategy 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. It could even lead to business failure.

Here are some benefits working with XBASE Technologies:

  • Your data is managed by experts in data backup and disaster recovery practices
  • No equipment—that you have to buy—sitting idle
  • Fast recovery times
  • Ability to test the plan without disrupting your business operations
  • Simple pricing for easier budgeting year after year
  • Compliance with standards and regulations
  • Peace of mind. Your data will be there when you need it

It’s time for you to get started on your disaster recovery plan/disaster recovery strategy and ensure your business’s continuity in the event of a natural disaster, equipment failure 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 remote working 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.
