business continuity Georgetown TX

Data is essential for all types of organizations today, so ensuring access to mission critical applications and data following a disaster is critical. However, business continuity and disaster preparedness are about so much more than that.

In other words, you might have important apps up and running somewhere, but that doesn’t matter if your office is underwater and your employees are at home without power. You need to consider the business as a whole in order to satisfy your customers needs following a disaster event.

That's why we use Datto. When it comes to your business, keeping your files, folders, and data protected is critical. So is having the ability to quickly restore said data in case a disaster strikes.

Is Datto Right For You?
The first step for many businesses is to conduct a Business Impact Analysis (BIA):

  • Identify potential events that could negatively impact normal business operations,
  • Calculate the likelihood that each event may occur, and
  • Quantify the impact that the event could have on your business.

For example, if your data center is in near the Gulf of Mexico, a hurricane is a possible event; its likelihood is high (during hurricane season); and your business could be negatively impacted in a big way if downtime is significant. You get the idea. There are a wide variety of threats to any business ranging from natural disasters to security breaches to random accidents—a leaky pipe can have the same impact as a flood if it’s directly above a critical server. Once you have that stuff sorted, you can move on to crafting specific plans for risk mitigation, disaster response and continuity of operations.

Disaster recovery and business continuity planning should be considered a critical aspect of running a business. However, many organizations disregard it completely. Others have some kind of plan in place, but fail to grasp how time consuming the recovery process can be and the the associated cost of downtime. The good news is that today’s data protection technologies and services have greatly improved the IT piece of the business continuity puzzle. There are a wide array of options in the market today at different price points, which enables you to select a product or service tailored to your specific business needs.
