- What would your organization do without access to its CRM system, email, and collaboration software?
- How would unplanned downtime affect business in the short term or even the long run?
- And to what extent would a disaster become worse if days, or even weeks of data were lost in the process?
Whether the cause is equipment failure, human error, or natural disaster, a hit like this can be devastating, especially with clients and customers relying on your organization for 24/7 availability.
These were some of the issues that PC Today wanted to address in their August 2013 front page feature titled “Are You Prepared For A Data Disaster”. In the article, the magazine interviewed Storagepipe CEO Steven Rodin regarding next-generation data protection challenges, and how businesses should adapt to these emerging issues.
In the article, PC Today highlighted some important advice that can help dramatically curb the threat of unplanned downtime while also reducing IT management costs and automating manual IT processes.
“Most companies today require two sets of backups in order to be adequately prepared. One backup set should be kept on-site for fast recovery or minor incidents. Another set should be kept at a remote site in case of a major destructive event at the primary location. Unfortunately, many organizations lack the time and resources to maintain the two separate manual backup processes that would be required.”</blockquote>
PC Today chose to profile Storagepipe due to their state-of-the-art Fastback DR Disaster-Recovery-as-a-Service offering, which provides several key features which the publication claimed were crucial for preventing unplanned server and datacenter downtime in a practical and cost-effective manner:
- Combination of Local and Cloud Backup
- Extremely Fast Emergency Recovery Speeds
- Granular Recovery of Enterprise Applications
- Easy to Implement and Monitor
Fastback DR offers a comprehensive hybrid backup approach, including disaster recovery and business continuity, and comes with all the hardware, software and off-site data center capabilities in a cost-effective pay-as-you-go pricing model.
