Continuity is something that many businesses don’t consider until it becomes an issue, by which time it is often too late. Taking the time to assess your business continuity and create disaster recovery plans before a data loss or server downtime allows you to enjoy a continued quality of service, safe in the knowledge that your business is prepared and will be able to recover in the event of a disaster.
So, how can I prepare?
There are a number of steps you can take to prepare for and try to prevent downtime, including local and off-site storage, regular backups and redundant or uninterruptable power supplies, but while these can increase protection and the likelihood of recovery on their own, they are used best in collaboration with virtualisation technology and in-house procedures.
How can virtualisation technology improve business continuity?
Opting for virtual IT services allows you to scale your service to match the demand of your business, saving you costs and ensuring that you always have the infrastructure capacity to deliver the service that your customers have come to know and love. This means that there is no delay in service if you need to expand, instead delivering instant expandability and scalability as you require.
Virtualisation also makes use of dedicated and secure reliable business servers with predictable and reliable connectivity, complete with a range of hosted applications and real-life monitoring of activities for proactive support. This is spread across a range of in-house and off-site servers across the country or the globe to ensure the highest possible reliability and uptime, meaning that your infrastructure is always there when you need it.
