Ever wonder what would happen if disaster strikes your business? Whether it’s human error, a power outage or a catastrophe, you need to have a disaster recovery plan in place before something happens.
Even those businesses with a plan may not be totally prepared. Because company IT resources can be stretched, our experience shows that data recovery is sometimes challenged. There may be a backup, but is it easily retrieved? Is it current and what is the full recovery time delay?
Even if you do recover from a data loss, is it really “business as usual” once you’re back up and running? For some organizations, data loss and time to full recovery does not necessarily affect just themselves, but their key business partners as well.
If your partners rely on the services you provide to ensure the success of their own business, what happens to them while you are down? Will your partners now need to consider alternative providers, just in case it happens again?
At Lanworks, our Disaster Recovery (DR) service was created for customers whose key business partners want to ensure that there is a DR compliancy program in place to ensure IT business continuity for everyone.
Our DR service allows you to meet your DR compliancy requirements via formal documentation and DR processes, to complement your present backup and recovery processes, or to incorporate contractual Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO).
Consider the challenge faced by our client, Computer Workware Inc. (CWI), a software developer serving the insurance and health benefits industry. Due to the nature of their business, CWI is required to have and maintain a comprehensive business plan to ensure they can handle unforeseen business interruptions.
CWI quickly realized that they could not effectively focus its time or resources to develop and execute a business continuity plan in a cost-effective and timely manner. So CWI turned to Lanworks to provide end-to-end business continuity services that would meet the rigorous requirements demanded by their clients, while being a minimal burden on CWI’s internal resources.
Chris Mascitelli, Vice President, Computer Workware Inc. noted that “Lanworks provided the ideal business continuity solution for us that included datacenter hardware, storage, security and software licenses so there was zero capital expenditure on our part.”
