No one wants to think about what life will look like during and after a major disaster. A disaster could include anything from a major security event like ransomware to a natural disaster like a fire or earthquake. Unfortunately failing to plan for these situations is planning to fail. A proper disaster recovery plan will help ensure minimal downtime and data loss. Protek offers customized disaster recovery plans and solutions that will meet your expectations and budget.
A proper disaster recovery solution includes:
Protek determines an RPO (how much data could be lost in a disaster) and an RTO (the amount of time until full restoration is obtained) tailored to each client’s IT budget and requirements.
Verifying that backups are running successfully on a regular basis is important to your overall backup and disaster recovery strategy. You don’t want to be the last to know that your backups have been failing.
Along with confirming that the software is reporting your backups are successful, you must also test the restore process to make sure the data inside the backups is good and that you will be able to restore in case of a disaster.
Backups should be saved to 2 or 3 different locations. One location would be onsite, and the other offsite in cloud storage. You can even choose an alternate 3rd offsite location that is offline to really make sure your data is protected.
