What is the difference between Backup & Disaster Recovery?
Backup is simply having a reliable copy of important files held somewhere safe. Our backup services help you setup and manage regular backup routines either:
- Locally - using removable hard disk or tape drive
- Remotely - using secure, encrypted links to secure data centres via the internet
Computer Disaster Recovery is more than just data backup, it ensures that you have the resources available to get your systems back up and running within certain timeframes given predefined scenarios. If required, Disaster Recovery techniques facilitate rebuilding essential systems such as servers in the minimum of time, with users, files and installed software just as they were before the failure. Disaster Recovery is a vital component of Business Continuity Planning, which is taking the proper measures to plan for a critical event, so that you can continue to operate with the minimum of disruption.
