Disaster Recovery (DR) is an absolute must in this era of 24/7 constant operation and uptime. Threats to business continuity continue to evolve. From ransomware to a hardware failure, to employee error, to natural disaster, a variety of events can cause outages, and the costs of downtime is very high, even for brief incidents. It’s up to organizations to be prepared. But how do businesses choose the best disaster recovery strategy while also making the most of limited resources and budgets?
When there is a disruption to your environment, you need to be able to get your organization back up quickly. Disasters can come from anywhere. Readiness is not something that you address occasionally or when it’s time to recover for real. It must be a daily focus and is something that many midsize and small organizations cannot do by themselves. Preparing for a disaster or outage takes time, resources, and staff that can better be used elsewhere. This is why Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) exists and is likely a viable solution for your organization.
To gain a better understanding of how costly downtime can be, Nfina recommends placing a value to your data and what it means to your business. Do you have 50 employees, 200, 1,000 or more? What’s the cost of their downtime? If you are unable to access your data, are you able to generate quotes, access and ship inventory, or view and keep appointments? How many clients have been forced to find another supplier, or can their online orders be submitted? All these issues can be a reality if a disruption or outage occurs. Each have a cost that must be considered when applying a value to your data. Once you have calculated the business value for your data, then you will have a better understanding of what you should budget for Disaster Recovery.
As the importance and value of data grow, being ready to protect and recover it is vital. Nfina’s Hybrid Cloud solutions are designed to prevent downtime and provide the essentials to protect your business data and recover from a disaster.
