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.

    Frequently asked questions

    Yes. Although it’s unlikely for a natural disaster to damage your IT infrastructure, human errors are fairly common. Having an IT disaster recovery plan in place means that you’ll always have the means to recover your vital systems and quickly restore them to their original condition.

    No, it’s not risky. The cloud is a safe place for you to store data and is an excellent disaster recovery solution if your physical storage is damaged. If you are concerned about your data on the cloud, you can choose to use a cloud service with two-factor authentication and encryption – we would highly recommend this.
