Disaster Recovery

In the IT dependant world of today it is incredibly frustrating, not to mention financially damaging, to have an IT system failure of any kind. ‘Disaster Recovery’ is the phrase used to describe the strategy for making sure that in the event of a disaster the effect on a business or organization is kept to a minimum.

Whether you’re running a large corporate network responsible for massive transactions or containing sensitive client data, or an educational one that contains student information and coursework, you need more than just backup.  You need to make sure that in the event of a disaster, be it theft, fire or flood, you can not only restore data but get back up and running as fast as possible.
