Business continuity is different from backup. A reliable backup is only one component of an IT Business Continuity Plan, which is one part of a full Disaster Recovery Plan. An IT Business Continuity Plan goes a step beyond having data backed up somewhere (tape, disc, cloud, etc.). A good plan also provides access to that data to continue operating your business if the hardware hosting the data becomes unusable through failure or even in the event the site is completely unavailable.
VelocIT Advantage customers are given a device that makes a copy of the servers. If there is a hardware failure, in less than one hour, these servers can be up and running on the back-up device — not just the data, but the entire server. During site unavailability (e.g., fire or flood), these redundant systems operate from the cloud.
Without a plan for maintaining business operations during catastrophic data loss, a business could be damaged within hours and wounded irreparably within a few days. With this simple solution in place, the risk for lost customers, revenue and reputation can be avoided.
