A good business owner plans for the future of their company. You manage your budget and make sure you’re prepared for good times and harder times. But when some business owners are told they should prepare their business to weather a disaster, they immediately think of hurricanes, wildfires, or floods, and think, “that will never happen to me.”
But disaster can strike at any time, and data losses can mean big problems for your business.
It doesn’t have to be widespread devastation from Mother Nature: a server theft, fire, sprinkler malfunction or an accidentally deleted important file can still cost your business lost revenues, money on repairs, wasted time and staff productivity, and potentially damaged reputations.
That’s why it’s vital that your Vancouver business invest in a Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Strategy. Affinity Managed can be your guide to make sure you have the right information technology to keep your important systems and information safe so you never have to worry about losing them.
Affinity Managed uses a comprehensive IT system recovery solution as a key part of your Business Continuity strategy. We constantly back up not only your files, but also your entire IT system. We “image” your servers and hard drives, essentially taking a snapshot of them, which saves not only your files, but also your applications, operating systems, configurations, and settings.
If you ever need to restore your systems because of disaster, you can start back up from exactly where you left off, without having lost anything. And, if for any reason you need to roll back your systems to an earlier time to escape the effects of a serious human error or destructive malware attack, we can do that too.
We use what’s called a hybrid cloud solution for your continuity. This saves your backups on a device in your office, so you can quickly and easily restore your files or systems within seconds if necessary. It also replicates to a cloud-based offsite facility, in Canada, which adds an important layer of security: if your office or onsite equipment is ever damaged, your important files and systems are still easily recovered from where they’re kept safe offsite.
Not only are your files and systems safe; Affinity Managed IT takes the disaster recovery process a step further to give you the best Business Continuity possible. With instant virtualization we can have a virtual copy of your server up and running and usable for you over the Internet within minutes. It won’t be fast, but you’ll be back in business while your on-site server is replaced. Downtime never needs to be days or weeks again.
