Why Every Business Needs a Backup and Disaster Recovery Plan

Your business operations rely on applications, documents, and existing data. What would happen if you suddenly lost access to essential applications due to a natural disaster? What if your computer hardware suddenly fails or accidental deletion of data by an employee puts your business in a precarious position? What if you’re on the receiving end of a cyber attack or a ransomware attack?For all these reasons and more,you need to have a Backup and Disaster Recovery Plan (BDR).

Studies have shown that businesses can experience an average loss of $25,000 per serious contingency. Small businesses and startups may not even recover from this kind of a financial blow because they’re already strapped for resources. Therefore, it’s crucial that you minimize the impact of unplanned downtime on your business and potential lost revenue with an effective BDR solution.

Let’s further explain how backup and data recovery plans are necessary for long-term business technology resilience:

Ensure Business Continuity

Backup and disaster recovery solutions work cohesively to ensure a company’s business continuity by:

  • Protecting your IT system for disruptions
  • Getting your data back up and running in case of a disaster
  • Testing and backing up your data regularly as part of an automated routine site maintenance
  • Performing hourly backups without human intervention along with logging and alerts that notify you about successful and failed backups
  • Allowing you to recover complete systems for time periods going back months
  • Ensuring the employees are well-informed and rehearsed in the event of a disaster

Minimize Unplanned Downtime with Cloud-Based Recovery Solutions

Cloud-based backup and recovery solutions allow users to access, administer, and restore backups at an offsite location. These solutions often provide the infrastructure for storing data at a remote location and the tools for managing the backup and disaster recovery processes.

Cloud backup provides the strongest protection against unplanned downtime and natural disasters. Plus, you avoid the large amount of investment required for the infrastructure and the costs of managing the environment. You also gain the geographic distance necessary to protect your data from a regional disaster.

Some businesses go for a hybrid approach for backup and data recovery by storing only the data in the cloud and keeping the production environment at their own data centers. This allows them to leverage the geographical distance without having to move the production environment.
