How Strong is Your Disaster Recovery Safety Net?


Ransomware and other cyberthreats are changing business’s needs for data protection across their on-premise, private cloud, SaaS, and public cloud environments.
If your organization is attacked, are you ready? Do you have a ransomware or disaster recovery plan in place?

Storagepipe has put together a template to guide you through the process and information that you need to gather, assess, and build upon for effective data Backup and Disaster Recovery. Download your copy of our Disaster Recovery Plan Template here!

As ransomware attacks have become an inevitability, disaster recovery is more important than ever before. However, with competing budget and security priorities many organizations are left exposed and unprepared.

Gartner Peer Insights and Storagepipe surveyed 100 engineering, security, IT, and operations leaders to discover their concerns, predictions, and challenges when it comes to disaster recovery. Read on for key insights or download the full report here!

What are the biggest threats to your businesses systems and data today?

When asked what they considered to be the biggest threats to their systems and data today, we found that IT leaders believe cybersecurity threats to be a key concern overall. Nearly half of the 100 surveyed (40%) said that ransomware/malware is their top concern, followed by user error (24%) and backup and recovery failure (15%).

When asked if their organization had experienced a data breach or cyberattack in the past two years, the majority (44%) of respondents said that they did, 42% said they did not and 14% were not sure.

Of those who have experienced a breach in the last 2 years, 61% said that breach was caused by malicious emails.

Additionally, only 2% of respondents said their end users have not experienced some form of email phishing.

Analyzing this data and these responses brings us back to the question –

How strong is your disaster recovery safety net after all?

Is your organization using effective cybersecurity and data protection strategies, solutions and/or services to ensure that your data and systems as well as your customers’ data and privacy are protected?

When we asked this question, 96% of respondents said that they’re using proactive cybersecurity to ensure the availability of their data, but only 59% of respondents said that they’re doing this for their business systems.

How are they protecting their data? Take a look here:

82% of tech leaders are using either a Managed Backup as a Service provider or a Managed Disaster Recovery as a Service provider to protect their business while 72% of tech leaders are using tools available through their Cloud provider to protect their Cloud environments. What’s interesting is that even amongst those using Cloud Provider tools, 80% of those are also using either a Managed Backup as a Service provider or a Managed Disaster Recovery as a Service provider for additional protection and expertise.

If you were attacked by ransomware today, how quickly would you be able to recover all your systems, data, and business operations?

70% of respondents said that if they were attacked by ransomware, they’d be able to recover all their systems within 24 hours, and 12% said it would take more than 48 hours.

24 hours or less is not fast enough for most business recovery time objectives (RTOs). If your current services and solutions are unable to recover and restore your data quickly enough to meet your RTO, the business stands to suffer unacceptable downtime, damage, and consequences.

No matter the size, location, or industry, organizations need to take the time to put together a well-thought-out and practical disaster recovery strategy for implementing cybersecurity and DR best practices.

Organizations should have an easy-to-understand step-by-step guide on what to do in a data emergency so that employees, partners and vendors understand their roles, responsibilities and the resources available to them before, during and after a crisis strikes.

Storagepipe has put together a template to guide you through the process and information that you need to gather, assess, and build upon for effective data Backup and Disaster Recovery. Download your copy of our DR Plan Template here!

How MSPs Can Generate High-Margin MRR with Cloud, BaaS & DRaaS


Listen in as Charles Weaver from MSPAlliance chats with Steven Rodin, CEO of Storagepipe on how responsive backup and disaster recovery services enable business continuity for MSPs (Managed Service Providers) and their customers. Want to listen on the go? Check it out on Apple Podcasts here.

• Enabling new high-margin monthly recurring revenue streams
• Leverage an experienced disaster recovery partner to help win deals
• Offer the latest hybrid, public cloud and Microsoft 365 data protection services

Business Continuity for Data, SaaS, and Systems in the Cloud

Steven and Charles discuss the shift to remote and hybrid work over the last two years that appears to have staying power for the foreseeable future, further driving and sustaining the migration to SaaS, cloud and hybrid models. IT teams have been migrating applications and operations to private and public clouds at an accelerated pace to optimize and future-proof their organizations. With the COVID-19 pandemic, those cloud migration efforts may have been stepped up by necessity as teams became dependent on remote tools for distributed workforces and customers.

Have organizations left some cybersecurity, data protection and business continuity fundamentals behind in their rush to the cloud? Is making the shift from legacy on-premises tech to new, outsourced cloud-based platforms causing new challenges, especially when constrained by time and business pressures?

Listen to the podcast here or on Apple Podcasts to find out what the future holds.

“We’ve been talking 24 hours a day for two years on cybersecurity issues, and it’s not like storage has been edged to the side and it’s not like people aren’t doing storage anymore, but it just seems like we need to make sure that we’re talking about all the elements of the security and operational viability stack,” points out Charles Weaver, host of the MSPAlliance MSPZone Podcast.

Deliver Profitable Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Services for Your Customers

Steven and Charles also discuss what MSPs need to provide in today’s connected and security conscious world to satisfy customers’ requirements for backup and recovery services. Customers are looking to safeguard their organizations against ransomware, user errors, and other evolving threats to their business operations and reputation. MSPs that add these services to their offering can attract new customers, cross-sell to existing customers, and increase customer retention all while generating high-margin monthly recurring revenue (MRR).

“To give advice to the MSPs out there, Backup for Microsoft 365 is a great entry-point for many customers. It’s a good way of landing new customers, it’s a good add-on service if you’re already working with a customer that’s on Microsoft 365; so, it’s a great opportunity to show additional value to your customer base,” shares Steven Rodin, CEO at Storagepipe.


– Steven Rodin, Storagepipe CEO

MSPs often face challenges with financial resources to develop in-house talent, systems, and processes. Partnering with a data protection and recovery specialist can fast-track MSPs on the path to successful portfolio expansion and new revenue streams without the typical start-up headaches. “A lot of small and mid-sized MSPs might already be doing backup, but now they want to get into disaster recovery and that’s where they turn to us to get more advanced and they maybe want to get into systems that they haven’t dealt with before,” says Rodin.

Implementing Internal MSP Backup and Disaster Recovery Helps Showcase Services to Customers

Weaver recalls a handful of conversations with folks in the industry who have pointed out that it is important for the MSPs themselves to be backing up their operational mission-critical data. “Every MSP ought to be doing at the very minimum everything that they do for their customers, on themselves. I mean, that seems to me just common sense.”


– Charles Weaver, MSPAlliance MSPZone Podcast Host

Rodin agrees. “I think that MSPs need to treat themselves like they would their customers, in a lot of ways. If they’re expecting their customers to take on new services and buy into the disaster recovery and backup space, then MSPs have to do it themselves. You want to be able to showcase the services that you sell by doing it internally. In fact, some MSPs that we’ve recently signed up, actually started with us internally and they liked the service so much that they started introducing it to their customers. I think that’s the key thing, because customers always want to know that you’re eating your own dog food, you’re following your own advice.”


– Steven Rodin, Storagepipe CEO

Industry 4.0 – Backup and Disaster Recovery


After lagging behind other sectors for decades, many asset-intensive industries are set to undergo a long overdue digital transformation. Billed as “Industry 4.0”, the shift is being driven by the adoption of big data, Artificial Intelligence (AI), machine learning, Internet of Things (IoT) and the cloud. The use of data to transform almost every aspect of industrial processes holds huge promise for increasing productivity, safety and efficiency. But it also creates a huge risk around the loss of data and will require these businesses to think very differently about industry data Backup and Disaster Recovery (DR) services.

Evolving Data Protection Across Industries

While the computer revolution initially transformed sectors as diverse as finance, entertainment, advertising and e-commerce, there are many others that remained relatively unchanged. Industries such as manufacturing, mining, logistics, energy, and transportation rely heavily on physical assets rather than digital processes. They have typically adopted information technologies (IT) only for administration and communications, while their basic operations remained undigitized.

As progress has marched forward, these industries are now beginning to join the digital transformation movement. Two of the biggest shifts leading to the adoption of digital operations technology (OT) are IoT and AI/machine learning. IoT sensors are enabling many physical processes to finally be digitally measured. Heavy machinery performance, physical asset movements and environmental conditions can now be carefully monitored using IoT sensors, which generate data streams continuously throughout the day.

AI machine learning analytics are then used to process this enormous amount of data to isolate patterns and draw insights on everything from when to plan maintenance, to optimizing end-to-end workflows and sensing environmental hazards. The digital data and machine learning insights can then enable the automation of extremely complex processes. Using digital twins technology, it is possible to model most physical processes using machine learning to continuously tweak operations, improve safety and find better ways to do things.

Machine learning typically relies on access to very large amounts of historical data in order to create algorithms that model the physical process. Whereas typically, logged data of this kind has traditionally been very low in terms of priority, it now becomes much more important, and thus may need to be given different priority in your backup and recovery plans. The AI machine learning programs must continuously go through the data source searching for patterns, even as new data is added. Models are continuously in a state of development and evaluation. They are constantly rebuilt as new data is added, and the model is refined. This closed loop repeats continuously.

This puts much greater emphasis on efficient and secure data storage strategies, including data backup (BaaS) and disaster recovery (DRaaS) to ensure that your systems have access to the right data at the right time. Especially at the beginning of the process during the training of the AI, it is difficult to determine what kinds of data need to be stored, since often the most relevant insights can be drawn from the sort of data that a human operator would simply disregard. As the AI model matures, certain workloads will become more important and will move from long-term, slower storage to very fast storage. AI “training processes” can access terabytes of storage per hour, putting extreme pressure on storage throughput.

Specialized Industry Data Backup and Disaster Recovery Services

For many businesses this hyper reliance on data is new territory, and it is important for them to engage a company that can provide expertise on how best to manage, protect and recover their data. One very good option is to choose a partner that provides Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS). This offers a practical solution for companies of all sizes, and especially those with limited IT personnel resources and capital to handle unpredictable disaster and emergency events. Leveraging specialized DR services enables businesses to focus their OT teams on core business needs while providing stand-by supportive resources when they need a helping hand the most.

It is important to plan carefully for what gets recovered and in what order because the AI data stores can be so large. This requires careful analysis of the criticality of your operations and systems, and the necessary order in which data needs to be recovered. Working closely with your DRaaS provider, you can create playbooks for exactly how to respond to different disaster scenarios, test them and then train your personnel to follow them.

A good DRaaS partner will also have extensive experience in helping companies recover from many different kinds of disasters including cybersecurity events, which are a new kind of threat for an asset-intensive industry as IoT introduces new avenues for attack along with enhanced connectivity.

As we embrace autonomous technologies built around IoT, AI and machine-learning, we are unleashing tremendous productive potential — all based on data. We are also setting ourselves up for serious difficulties if the data is lost. A good DRaaS partner can help you to navigate and survive events of this nature and ensure that your business thrives in its new data-driven model and is not crippled by the loss of it.

Find Your DRaaS Partner and Make Disaster Recovery a Strategic Part of Your Service Portfolio


You may already be managing backup services for some of your clients, but haven’t yet expanded to offering a complete disaster recovery service. Or you simply haven’t added Managed Backup or Disaster Recovery (DR) to your service portfolio at all. Either way, there are good reasons to consider offering your customers DR, not just as a source of recurring revenue, but also as a sticky service that can create a more trusted advisor relationship that leads to new business. It has become easier to add DR to your portfolio with the advent of Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS), especially when working closely with a DRaaS partner.

DRaaS is a perfect example of an on-demand cloud service that is always-on and scales with your client’s needs. For you and your customers, there is the added benefit that you don’t need to keep a second data center for redundant servers and communications services. An additional perk for you is that DR brings in new customers, such as SMBs, that will find it easier to start small and scale as they grow.

DRaaS offers three other main benefits to your customers:

  1. Immediate recovery from any kind of disaster with system failover to a secondary infrastructure within minutes.
  2. Depending on needs and resources, customers get the flexibility to customize the scope of recovery from all types of disasters, from malware and ransomware to hurricanes and wildfires.
  3. DRaaS offers seamless redundancy and no single point of failure to keep data securely protected in the cloud and away from the primary site.

Working closely with a customer to plan for recovery from a disaster that could jeopardize their business, requires that you get a clear understanding of their key operations and those parts of the business that are mission-essential. This disaster recovery planning approach is more strategic and collaborative between provider and customer than with a managed backup service, and requires you and the customer to predefine playbooks for exactly how to respond to different disaster scenarios. This is your opportunity to take your relationship with your customer to a new level. If you are able to add value and insights, you can earn their trust and develop a longer-term relationship with greater revenue potential.

Working on the disaster plan will involve taking the customer through a thorough risk assessment to identify vulnerabilities in their infrastructure. You may ask, which components are the most important and how do they impact their critical business functions? You will need to calculate both the financial and non-financial costs. Besides loss of revenue, there is the potential loss of opportunity; for instance, companies that recover faster, gain a competitive advantage.

The goal of all this analysis is to develop with the customer what they believe is their realistic recovery time objectives (RTO). In other words, how long can their infrastructure afford to be down? This is often a compromise between what they view as ideal and what they can afford. Similarly, you will also set the recovery point objectives (RPO), which define what level of data must be recovered and at what time-based increment or schedule, which should follow directly out of the analysis of critical business functions.

Qualities and Benefits of a Reliable DRaaS Partner

Having a technology partner that is focused on providing disaster recovery can be helpful during this process. A good DRaaS partner will have extensive experience in helping companies recover from many different kinds of disasters. This experience can be leveraged in formulating a sound disaster plan. And should the time come that a disaster does occur, it’s good to have team members onboard who routinely handle disaster situations and are able to meet the challenge with a measured and effective response that only comes with experience.

Your DRaaS partner will be particularly useful in the setting and defining of RTO and RPO objectives. These objectives set the parameters for the SLA you agree to and defines your relationship and your obligations going forward. This includes identifying the cost-effective services and configurations that are recommended for your customer to meet their RTO and RPO, including full or partial failover, and hot site or warm site replication. It is critical to get it right at the beginning, and this is where the extensive experience of a DRaaS partner can be drawn upon to ensure that the defined service achieves the customer’s objectives as well as your own.

Finally, your ultimate objective in defining a DR plan for your customer is to identify where they are most vulnerable and to help them to address those weaknesses to prevent disasters altogether. Again, you will have to move the needle on your relationship to go beyond reacting to their needs to anticipating them, and as a result positively shape the way they operate their business.

This is why DRaaS is much more than an additional revenue stream or a sticky service, although it is both these things. It is above all an opportunity to move you from being regarded as just a service provider to being a trusted strategic long-term partner for their business.

Business Continuity and High-Availability


When Storagepipe first launched in 2001, the company exclusively offered online backup (at that time called “managed backup”) services to help businesses meet their business continuity requirements.

In response to customer demand, Storagepipe has since expanded its services portfolio to include new, forward-looking cloud services that solve next-generation data protection problems. Some of these new services include things such as synchronization, data archiving, business continuity, high-availability and disaster recovery services.

In this interview with the Startup Success podcast, we discuss the specifics of our high-availability and business continuity services, and why these types of services solve important emerging problems for today’s SMBs.

Storagepipe takes best-of-breed enterprise business continuity solutions, and makes them available in an as-a-Service model. Without Storagepipe, these services would be inaccessible to SMBs because of this high cost and significant capital investment required for hardware, software and services.

Accessible Business Continuity for SMBs

With Storagepipe, everything is bundled together in a cost-effective way, and customers only pay for what they need. It’s another way that Storagepipe provides SMB technology buyers with the same level of VIP service that’s normally only offered to large enterprises.

With Storagepipe’s high-availability service, client systems are replicated to Storagepipe’s datacenter, and the client’s primary datacenter is monitored for health. In the event that the client’s primary datacenter goes down or becomes unavailable, operations can immediately switch over to Storagepipe’s datacenter. Storagepipe’s mirrored copies of the client’s servers will act as temporary emergency failover systems until the primary systems can be repaired and brought back into availability.

Large companies already operate redundant datacenters for business continuity and high availability purposes. However, small businesses with the same availability requirements simply could not afford this kind of backup and redundancy to maintain uptime for their own equally critical business systems and disaster recovery capabilities.

Storagepipe helps empower small businesses by providing them with these same capabilities, in a way that’s much more accessible.
