If you have data to protect in your business, a Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) plan can help protect against system failures or disasters. A BDR is “a combination of data backup and disaster recovery solutions that work cohesively to ensure a company’s business continuity.” When the worst or unexpected occurs, a BDR can provide the necessary support to help business functions move forward.
Some of the benefits of a BDR include
• Maximum productivity
With combined data backup and disaster recovery, your company can avoid huge losses in productivity in the event of a data breach, employee error, or other disaster.
• Rapid data recovery
A functional BDR should back up your data regularly and restore your data when systems unexpectedly fail.
• Financial savings
Each company’s BDR may differ from the next, depending on company needs and requirements. Therefore, a BDR solution that’s unique to your company and fluctuates with company growth can help avoid costly disasters in the future.
For any company, an ideal BDR solution should include the following:
• Proven recovery time objective
Your BDR must back up company data within the time your company can afford to lose after a system failure.
• Hardware compatibility
All your company devices and servers should work fluidly with your BDR.
• 24/7 technical support
Disasters occur beyond business hours and oftentimes during vacation or the holidays.
• Cloud-based backup
As part of a comprehensive backup strategy, more companies are turning to the Cloud for its reliability and security management.
Ask your IT department or IT service provider about potential BDR plans for your company.
Cybercrime is on the rise, natural disasters strike, and equipment may falter.
BDRs minimize risks and safeguard your company during these unfortunate events.
