Business Continuity

Are you confident that you could maintain business as usual in the event of disaster or disruption?

Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

Information is at the heart of every business and organisation in the UK, with access to information being critical to success. Unfortunately it is not uncommon for data and information to be lost during a disaster – be it flood, power outage, human error or computer virus. Just as a car comes with a spare tyre, your business needs a simple and effective solution to get back on the road in the event of a data or system outage.

When it comes to disasters and data loss, many organisations think that “it will never happen to me.” The reality is that simply hoping nothing bad will happen is not a great strategy for protecting your business. To make sure you are prepared, you need a business continuity solution in place which allows your business to recover within a quick and realistic timescale.

Recovery Speed -
When Disasters occur, you need to recover – fast. We measure our response using the industry metrics of Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO). With guaranteed timescales against each of these metrics, we can ensure that you failover within minutes, whilst real-time journaling allows you to experience near zero data loss.

Budget -
One challenge businesses face when looking to implement a disaster recovery solution, is budget. Often, businesses have a choice between a less costly solution which does not fully support their business needs, or a more costly option which includes a set of assets that will never be fully utilised. vSTAX Recover allows you to implement a cloud disaster recovery solution where you only ever pay for the service that you actually use.

Testing & Support -
Simply implementing a DR plan is not enough – testing must take place to ensure that it is fit for purpose. Quarterly testing allows you to regularly exercise and test your DR plans, and the results can be made available to your auditors for compliance purposes

Our recovery support team are UK based and available 24 × 7 × 365. By choosing vSTAX Recover, you can experience all of the benefits of Cloud Backup, in-line and appropriate to your business requirements.

Location -
Our Tier II datacentres are wholly owned and operated within the UK, ensuring that there are no issues with governance or compliance requirements for EU or legislative data control. Accredited to the highest standards, ISO9001/ISO27001 compliant and Cloud Industry Forum (CIF) certified, our datacentres support hundreds of companies across the country.

As part of our Disaster Recovery solution, multiple production copies are held at geographically separate locations.
