Have you implemented a disaster recovery solution for your company’s IT network? Many companies haven’t, and there are a number of reasons why you may not have done so yourself. You may consider the maintenance and implementation of such a plan to be too expensive, or you may lack the resources to implement it. Alternatively, you may see the lack of a disaster recovery plan for your firm’s IT as a manageable risk, or you may even be just a little bit guilty of what one may describe as a “it’ll never happen to us” attitude.
Even if you have gone as far as to implement any disaster recovery solutions, you may not have maintained them properly, which makes them difficult to invoke when you need to. Here at Proxar IT Consulting, we offer Disaster Recovery services that ensure you have a disaster recovery site design that is actually integrated with your production infrastructure, in addition to boasting lower maintenance costs and being easier to maintain than you might have expected. By investing in our disaster recovery services, you can look forward to a disaster recovery site design that actually provides an ROI (Return On Investment) to your business and that can actually be implemented by our team alongside your existing resource.
Audit Your Existing Infrastructure
When you first get in touch with us about your business continuity disaster recovery, we will perform requirements gathering and an audit of your existing infrastructure. The former process is necessary in order to gain an understanding of a series of factors and requirements that need to be considered, from the level of budget that will be required to the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for the network and key functions and services. Our disaster recovery services include impact analysis that distinguishes critical and non-critical functions and activities, with each critical function having an RPO (the acceptable latency of data to be recovered) and RTO (the acceptable amount of time to restore the function) assigned to it. The RPO must ensure that each activity’s maximum tolerable data loss is not exceeded, whilst the RTO must ensure that each function’s Maximum Tolerable Period of Disruption (MTPD) is not exceeded.
Once the requirements gathering and audit of your existing infrastructure is complete, we will use this information to produce a report that details the findings and a number of potential disaster recovery solutions. It may be the case that you are best off with a multi-site solution that makes use of your existing infrastructure, or the best decision might be to have a totally separate cloud based infrastructure created. Alternatively, the best disaster recovery solution may involve the use of virtualisation or cloud technologies. Whichever disaster recovery solution you choose for your own firm, the most appropriate one will be decided upon after close consultation with our experts.
Disaster Recover Solution
Then, of course, we will work closely with your own technical team to implement the agreed disaster recovery solution, whilst causing as little disruption as possible to your existing cloud infrastructure. Part of this process will involve choosing hardware and software that ensure that the final implemented disaster recovery solution is reliable and delivers the highest possible levels of availability and performance. Indeed, it is for this reason that, although we are independent of any vendors, we nonetheless tend to use the industry leading products of such companies as Cisco and Red Hat.
Finally, there is the monitoring and management stage, which, here at Proxar IT Consulting, is given strong consideration right at the start of the business continuity disaster recovery design and implementation process. Indeed, if it is identified as a requirement, we are able to deeply integrate our management and monitoring services into your final network disaster recovery site design, providing specifically tailored management and monitoring on a 24 hours a day, 7 days a week basis.
