Managed IT backup, disaster recovery and business continuity

Planning for potential IT disasters is essential to keep your business running

IT backup, disaster recovery and business continuity

Even the best-designed security solution can’t account for the unexpected, so you need to be covered. Fire, flood, hardware failure, human error – all of this can threaten your data. Files, applications, or entire servers, whether virtual or physical, may need to be recovered. Our managed backup and disaster recovery IT services can ensure your business continues in the case of an emergency. Downtime can mean huge losses in work-hours and lost revenue, so Plan IT Support knows how important it is to have an IT disaster recovery plan in place.

Do you have a business continuity plan?

Any business is vulnerable to an IT crisis. This means that at any point and without notice, an external factor could bring your IT systems down. Given this, any business should have a IT disaster recovery plan or business continuity plan in place.

Ensuring business continuity, while attempting to minimise the disruption a crisis such as a server failure can cause, is challenging. Furthermore, not all businesses are the same so not all disaster recovery solutions are the same. Plan IT Support will talk to you about your business needs and evaluate your level of risk. We will work with you to come up with a disaster recovery plan that balances need with value-for-money. Recovery speed, uptime requirements, backup frequency, budget – all of this will be taken into account.

Our off-site backup solutions utilise globally-distributed data centres that are SSAE-compliant and ISO-certified. Operating across Essex and London, Plan IT Support will provide your business with the professional backup and disaster recovery services you need, along with any other general IT support.

Plan IT helped make the Cyber Essentials process smooth and easy. We went through the self-assessment route and they helped answer any questions we needed support with. We always use Plan IT for our IT support due to their knowledge and experience.

Dean Appleton-Claydon, We Create Digital

In the 8 years I’ve worked with Plan IT Support, I’ve not once had an IT issue (personally or professionally) that they’ve not been able to resolve. They are quite simply, brilliant! They’re on hand when you need then, respond quickly, are friendly, trustworthy and professional. I can’t recommend them enough.

Karina Urquhart, BIC

I think that switching our IT support over to you was one of the best business decisions Shearwater has made – it’s so refreshing not only to get a reply to queries so quickly but also to have you so willing to help out with even the little things.

Louise Longworth, Shearwater BAC Ltd

I would recommend Plan IT to any business looking for a friendly and reliable IT service from very knowledgeable people. The service they have provided is second to none, even going as far as resolving technical issues outside of business hours within minutes. Their response time is swift, and their advice is competent and refreshingly clear.

Mike Topping, A Plus Security

We really weren’t aware just how much the company would come to depend on video meetings and remote working until the effects of 2020 hit. The work Plan IT did with us before and during the pandemic to get us into the cloud has been instrumental in keeping our business working smoothly, despite everything.

Peter Gaynor, Cilantro Engineering UK Ltd

As a start-up, Plan IT have helped guide us with the full knowledge of what we need to do at the start, and how we need to build and develop as we grow. Their service is fantastic and they are always quick to respond and help in any way they can. We would highly recommend them to any organisation.

Ruth Robinson, MeteorWrite

You have always provided us with an amazingly fast and efficient service at a very reasonable cost, going about your work in a very approachable and polite manner. It makes a huge difference and gives us a great sense of security to know that you guys are always on call and available to work through issues that come up.

Tom Lacey, Lacey & Saltikov Architects
