Backups & Disaster Recovery

A comprehensive backup and disaster recovery service which allows your business to swiftly recover data and files, enabling you to quickly resume operations and get back on track without delay.

What is business backup and disaster recovery?

Backup refers to the process of creating copies of important data and files from your computer and storing them in a separate location or on different storage media. The purpose of backup is to have a duplicate copy of data that can be used to restore information in case of data loss, corruption, accidental deletion, or some other issue. Backups provide a point-in-time snapshot of data, and so should be done regularly.

Disaster recovery, on the other hand, focuses on the overall strategy and procedures for recovering and restoring operations after an IT disaster or disruption to your work computers.  It involves the processes and technologies used to bring your computer systems, applications, and data back to work after a computer crash or other unexpected event.

Why does your business need a backup and disaster recovery plan?

Data Protection

Data loss can occur due to hardware failures, natural disasters, cyberattacks, human errors, or other unforeseen events. Having regular backups and a recovery plan ensures that data can be restored in case of such incidents, minimising the risk of permanent data loss.

Business Continuity

A well-designed backup and disaster recovery plan enables your company to recover quickly and resume its essential functions, minimising the impact on productivity, revenue, and customer service.

Compliance and Legal Requirements

Many industries have specific regulations and legal requirements related to data protection and business continuity. Having a backup and disaster recovery plan in place helps a business meet these obligations, reducing the risk of non-compliance and potential legal consequences.

Cost Savings

While implementing a backup and disaster recovery plan requires investment, it can ultimately save a business significant costs in the long run. The financial impact of data loss, downtime, and recovery efforts can be substantial, including lost productivity, customer churn, legal penalties, and reputation damage.

Reputation and Customer Trust

A business’s reputation is closely tied to its ability to safeguard data and maintain uninterrupted services. If customers experience data breaches, data loss, or extended service disruptions, they may lose trust in the company and take their business elsewhere.

Competitive Advantage

In today’s competitive landscape, customers and partners often prioritize working with businesses that have robust data protection and business continuity strategies. Having a backup and disaster recovery plan can give a business a competitive edge, demonstrating its commitment to reliability, security, and resilience.

Can I do my own back-ups?

A manufacturing company was doing their own backups, but then their computer systems crashed. Sadly, the last backup didn’t work properly, and since they weren’t doing backups regularly, they lost important data, leading to significant downtime, costly data recreation efforts, and potential legal consequences.

This experience emphasised the crucial need for a strong and up-to-date backup and disaster recovery plan for this business, to avoid such disruptions and their associated financial and operational impacts in the future.

I had a serious ‘ breakdown’ for want of a better word with my office computer 2 days ago after an update basically shut down my computer graphics and 2nd screen. As a service-based business I have to be able to send reports out to clients asap so was in a bind. I rang my friends at Section and Brett and Will sorted it all out remotely from their office, cleaned it all up, and had me back on track within 1 hour! I couldn’t recommend these guys more highly for their professionalism and their quick and quality service.

Thanks guys !
