4 Reasons Why Disaster Recovery Plan Should Be a Priority

Quick question? – How long can your business survive without any critical data, applications and operations?

Anything more than 48 hours could indicate that you do not need a viable disaster recovery plan. Let’s face it, at some point your data will be at risk. It could be a machine error, a human error, a virus or even a natural disaster like an earthquake. Turning your back on proper precautions could mean losing it all.

Think of your disaster recovery plan as an insurance policy for your data and business if something out of your control happens.

 

Disasier recovery plan

This is why we’ve compiled our top 4 reasons why your backup and disaster recovery plan should be a priority.

Machines & Hardware Fail

While we have reached a stage in technology where Intelligent bots are shaking up lawyer’s jobs, it’s still not perfect and is bound to have issues here and there. Identifying and eliminating the single point of failure in your IT infrastructure could be an expensive affair, although it is really the only way to ensure that a hardware failure will not interrupt your service or cause data loss. The best option is to backup your data regularly, ideally with a leading and highly secure managed hosting provider.  This will help to eliminate any interruptions in case of IT infrastructure failures.

 

Humans Make Mistakes

This is the most seen mistake, and the hardest to prevent and correct, regularly backed up data lets you restore it to an error-free state. As much as we wish we were, people are not perfect and can easily overlook an important step in a process and accidentally delete data or enter the wrong data. Making sure you have efficient processes in place and good quality assurance programs are your best bet, but having an online backup solution can be as equally important.

 

Nature is Unpredictable

We have all read and seen what can happen when the wrath of mother nature hits, which can be unpredictable at times. Businesses that don’t have a backup and disaster recovery plan in place can find it almost impossible to resume operations after a major disaster hits. In fact, an estimated 80% of all companies that experience a business interruption of greater than five days, without recovery plans, go out of business.

 

Customers Want Access 24/7/365

Times have changed, now customer holds the key to a business, an average customer expects the information they want to access to be available at his will. This means if your organization is facing infrastructure issues and cannot pull out the data in a timely fashion, these anxious customers could jump ship to a competitor.

 

We conclude by saying that without having a proper contingency plan, companies run the risk of incurring high monetary and non-monetary losses like outages, downtime, loss of data, low employee morale, loss of reputation, and lower revenues. Thus, a robust disaster recovery strategy is important to run a successful and a secure business.

Azure Vs AWS: The Cloud Battle: Part 2

In the second part of the series Azure Vs AWS: The Cloud Battle, we talk about the ease of use, the advantages you get being a Microsoft product consumer and the verdict.

Read: Azure Vs AWS: The Cloud Battle: Part 1

Gentle Learning Curve

AWS is widely perceived as being complicated. This is evident by the numerous tutorials, user guides, and troubleshooting documents that are out there.

Conversely, Azure allows the utilization of the same tried and trusted technologies that several businesses have used in the past and are still using today. These include Windows and Linux, Active Directory, and virtual machines.

Build and iterate faster

Azure’s integrated tools and services help ISVs build applications faster; by contrast, Amazon Web Services puts the burden of integrating different services on their users.

 

The ‘Enterprise Agreement’ Advantage

If an organization already uses Microsoft software, then it likely has the ‘Enterprise Agreement’ with Microsoft. It is entitled to obtain discounts on the Microsoft software being used as Microsoft usually tweaks these agreements to lower the pricing of Azure. Thus, with the enterprise agreement, enterprises can typically obtain significant incentives for using Azure.

Ninety percent of Fortune 500 companies use Azure.
