It doesn’t matter what industry your business represents – the importance of having a viable business continuity plan in place is tantamount to your business survival. The occasional and inevitable disasters which can happen to any business entity tend to come unannounced, and often at a high price. That is, unless you have something like a Datto business continuity system in place.
Disasters can befall any business entity at any time, and often cause significant loss of some kind – either financial or through data loss – or both. If you don’t have a reliable disaster recovery and continuity plan in place, you could be opening your business venture up to costly liability.
Whatever industry your enterprise is part of, having a viable business continuity (BC) and disaster recovery (DR) plan in place is an absolute must when doing business in the 21st Century.
Just one hour of data center downtime will cost you significantly as a business entity, especially if you do the normal amount of sales and account processing during the average workday. And, the bigger the organization, the more financial loss you’ll suffer when disaster strikes you without having proper business continuity planning locked-in. Such failures can include:
- Natural disasters like fires or floods
- Power outages
- Cyber breach or attack
- Technological failure
Why You Need Datto Business Continuity Solutions in Your Life
Datto began in 2007 and since then has maintained a 300% annual growth rate. Datto products are built from the ground up as reliable business continuity solutions and have options that fit businesses of any size.
Make sure your business data is safely protected with state-of-the-art Datto technology protecting your business IT infrastructure from downtime, even when your physical hardware has been destroyed.
If your business relies on data stored in the cloud, Datto can protect your critical data from the most likely form of loss – human error or misconduct. Accidental deletions, ex-employees, even malicious activity is covered via Datto backup. Datto hardware allows you to instantly restore accounts and data so your business can return to normal.
Datto’s Instant Virtualization technology virtualizes systems either locally on the Datto appliance or remotely in a Datto secure cloud — within seconds. It also allows a protected system to be virtualized and hosted either locally on a Datto BDR appliance (SIRIS), or remotely in the secure Datto SIRIS or Datto ALTO Cloud in seconds. Regardless if the recovery point is months or even years old, Datto’s DRaaS solutions stop the long RTOs caused through reconstructing backups on disk or restoring them from magnetic tape.
Do You Have Any Statistics on Disaster, Backup, and Recovery Readiness?
It’s a fact that 53% of organizations can only tolerate less than an hour of downtime before they experience a significant loss of revenue or other impactful business loss that begins to threaten their ability even to function.
A Business Continuity and Trends Survey by Continuity Central Archive found that 32.8% of respondents anticipate “large changes” in the way their organizations manage business continuity, while only a mere 14.7 % expected no changes to their BC plan.
In the case of Hurricane Sandy in 2012, which left more than $65 billion USD in damage in its wake, only 30% of those respondents to an information management survey afterward declared themselves to have been ready for such a catastrophe with proper business continuity and disaster recovery assurance in place.
As a business owner, you should invest some valuable time in meeting with an IT support team like Globalquest who will act as your vCIO (Virtual Chief Information Officer) and Datto support pros. This will fine-tune the planning, design, and implementation of a long-term, effective business continuity plan.
