We believe that every business-critical server should be well protected, so you can rely on high performance and consistent availability. Our engineers work with our clients to ensure that solid, dependable backup equipment and processes are in place.
However, we realize that even the best, most well-maintained hardware backups leave a window of risk. Say, for example, that you run a backup every night and a machine problem occurs in the middle of a business day. Once we get your server repaired and running again, you might have to start afresh with data saved from your last full backup, taken the night before.
This might not sound like the worst case scenario, but it means that your staff will likely have to re-create and re-enter several hours of data... which can result in errors and omissions that cost money as well as confidence.
To eliminate situations such as these, we offer our clients a disaster recovery package that provides real time server backup of all new transactions. These frequent backups mirror the data on your live server, maintaining a copy that runs only minutes behind. Should a machine problem occur, then, we can have you up and running again within minutes after the repair, with minimal data loss — and very little "catching up" for your staff to do.
This add-on feature is an invaluable insurance against unnecessary downtime.
- You can maintain a mirror at a different physical location, which helps protect business-critical data in case of a problem at the main server's location.
- We can also set up the mirror to support complete failover.
- We offer a hosted disaster recovery solution to provide a real-time offsite backup and disaster recovery option at a data center in suburban Chicago.
