Disaster Recovery Services
Companies must take steps to make their businesses less dependent on a single office or data infrastructure. Consider implementing technologies that can quickly duplicate company data at a remote location. Gartner Research predicts that two out of five enterprises that experience a disaster will go out of business within five years. Therefore, it is more important than ever to either build a redundant IT facility, or select an IT outsourcing service provider for disaster recovery.
Traditional implementation of Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning are rather complex and extremely expensive. That is why many small to medium size companies do not have a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan in place. Fortunately, new Internet technologies are reducing the cost and complexity of implementing the Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plans. For a few hundred dollars a month, your mission critical data can be replicated to a secure, remote data center in real time. None of your data will be lost when a disaster hits your primary IT facility.
You can mirror your mission-critical IT systems at a remote data center (a hot-site). When your primary IT facility goes down, you can switch your IT systems to the mirrored site in a few minutes or less. You can even make the fail over to the mirror site transparent to end-users. End users will not need to make any changes or feel any impact on their productivity when a disaster hits.
We offer four levels of disaster recovery services depending on your desired recovery time.
Virtual Servers: Vitual server images based on virtualization technology can be hosted in a data center. These virtual servers can be uploaded, activated, updated 24 hours a day 7 days a week. We can handle virtual server farms from a few virtual servers to thousands of virtual servers.
Hot-Site: A mirror's system of customer production IT system will be located in a data center. When customer's production system goes down, services will be switch to the mirrored site in a few minutes or less. This service is designed for businesses that cannot tolerate any downtime in their mission-critical environments. Additional benefits to have a Hot-Site are: Testing upgrades, patches, new setups at the backup Hot-Site before you apply them to your live production IT system.
Online Data Storage: Critical data (databases, server images) is replicated or backed up to eliteBco backup storage systems. Customer systems are restored from such backup data to hardware that will be purchased by customer and delivered to their data center upon declaration of a disaster.
Data Loss Prevention: This type of disaster recovery service places emphasis on enhancing a back-up system to prevent any future loss of data. Having such a system in place ensures quick restoration of the system and business continuity after the disaster. Data loss prevention is a must for large-scale businesses as the loss of any data – no matter how miniscule an amount – can translate into huge losses for the company.
No matter what the size of your business, including disaster recovery services within your system is no longer an optional add-on. It is an indispensable element of your IT systems because we simply don't know what kind of danger is lurking round the corner.
