Create a Disaster Recovery Plan that will Sweep You Off Your Feet

by | Feb 5, 2024 | Data Backup & Disaster Recovery

Have you ever been so busy that you forgot something important? Something essential to everyday life? Something on the tip of your tongue or at the edges of your mind. Like you may have left the laptop bag on the roof of your car while in a rush and it was smashed to pieces five miles back. Now that it’s gone, how do you get it back? Almost nobody thinks of the “what-if” until it’s too late.

Everything we do daily is connected to technology. Notable, isn’t it, how computers went from taking up a dedicated “computer room” for them to now just taking up the space of a pocket in a few short years. Even in that small, pocket-sized device there is a plethora of data, especially if you use it for work-related functions. However, can you get all that data back if anything happens to it? What about if something happens to your office desktop computer? Hopefully, you have a disaster recovery plan for the “what-if” moments. If you don’t have one, be sure to contact your IT service provider to create one and safeguard you if the worst possible outcome happens.

Keeping a backup of all your sensitive data needed to keep your operations running is one thing, but here is the critical question: how long will it take to get back on your feet? It can take days to get equipment and peripherals replaced. However, this scenario can also be included in your disaster recovery plan on how to minimize downtime.

When it comes to disaster recovery, ESEI has devices that can temporarily spin up an image of the server from the latest backup to ensure you can keep working. At the same time, the equipment replacement is on its way. Suppose you are backing up your machine itself. In that case, ESEI can also pull that old dusty computer you have in storage and put the latest backup on it while the shiny new one is on its way. There are many customizable options that can be built into your disaster recovery plan that is specific to your needs.
