Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning 

Protecting business-critical applications and data against various causes of downtime is a constant challenge. Businesses today need to be highly resilient, with an IT infrastructure that is available around the clock. Any downtime of the IT systems, disruption to services, or the loss of critical data is damaging to the business. In some cases the business may never fully recover.  

To avoid downtime a business must ensure that they can recover quickly and efficiently from any disruption, including fire, flood, adverse weather or the failure of a server.

Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning 

Careful planning and a comprehensive, up-to-date, and tested business continuity and disaster recovery plan is crucial if you want your business to recover swiftly from a disaster.
