In the case of an outage, it's important for organizations to prepare their disaster recovery (DR) strategy now so they have a plan in place to prevent business downtime and revenue loss.

If you’re like the majority of our clients, your organization requires at least 99.9% uptime. Losing patient files, transaction history or other critical data greatly impacts the health of your business and service you can provide your customers.

If your business experiences an outage, whether from a natural disaster, Cryptolocker, power outage, server misconfiguration, or any other unplanned failure—are you 100% confident that you can recover within set SLA’s?

All joking aside, if you aren't 100% confident, or simply want to confirm you have the foundations in place to recover, we offer a complimentary DR review.

Learn how to perform a fully automated DR failover and failback test in less than 10 minutes. 

Key Foundations in the DR Assessment:

  • Shared best practices from industry peers

DR Tools

  • Determine target Recovery Point Objectives (RPO’s) and Recovery Time Objectives (RTO’s)
  • Identify critical applications and tier workloads based on your business needs
  • Calculate the financial revenue lost, per hour or week, of downtime to your business

Best Practices for Disaster Recovery

  • Private Cloud (Site A to Site B)
  • Hybrid Cloud (Site A to Service Cloud Provider)
  • How DR strategy ties into the future of Software Defined Data Center (SDDC)
  • Public Cloud (AWS or Microsoft Azure)
