Any business can be the victim of an accident: fire, water damage, power failure, computer failure or even be the victim of an attack by hackers. Following such an incident, your business could lose important data, or even stop functioning. Imagine the cost of your financial losses for each day that your business goes down. A scenario that could cause bankruptcy for some. In fact, here are some interesting statistics on this subject:

  • Almost 40% of small businesses close after a disaster, according to the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
  • 52% of small businesses say it would take at least three months to recover from a disaster, according to a 2015 survey of 500 small business owners by Nationwide.

By using a disaster recovery service, you can be prepared for any eventuality. Your operations can resume quickly and the damage caused by the incident will be minimal.

What is disaster recovery service ?

Disaster Recovery as a Service is an offsite backup and replication in the Cloud of your infrastructure to protect you from a failure of your primary site. This service is less expensive and complex than supporting a recovery infrastructure by yourself.

6 benefits of disaster recovery service

1) Reduce your management and material costs

You save the costs of buying a second data center, new servers, storage and network equipment. Plus, you don’t have to worry about paying staff to maintain your data center.

2) A flexible and fast solution

In the event of a disaster, you will be able to relocate your data center or part of it with just one click. By keeping the data in your failover plan up to date, recovery will be rapid, even in the event of a large-scale failure with your virtual machines.

3) The possibility of testing your recovering plan

You can test an entire site failover without impacting production. This lets you know if your business would really be prepared for a major incident.

4) Easy and complete integration

By doing business with professionals, you can eliminate the costs of training your administrators and focus on value-added tasks for your business. Offsite replication of your infrastructure to the service provider is fully integrated into administrator interfaces and workflows.

5) Your data are in a safe place

A copy of your data is saved and kept in a secure environment outside of your network. So even in the event of a major loss, you can easily access your files and data.

6) Predictable and controlled costs

Several service providers offer packages or a solution that is entirely tailored to your business needs. Thus, avoid paying for unforeseeable costs.

In conclusion...

Downtime caused by hardware malfunction or natural disaster is not an option for businesses of all sizes. By using a disaster recovery service, protect your business against any eventuality and most importantly, sleep well without stressing.
