Importance of Business Continuity

Business continuity is the businesses level of readiness to maintain critical business functions after a major disruption or incidents. These events include power outages, security breach and incidents. Equipment and hardware failure as well as natural disasters.

Downtime is not only disruptive to business continuity infrastructure but can also be costly to businesses. Through assessing every client’s unique risks, we can collaboratively put a strategic plan in place so that your staff can continue working.

Business continuity is the measure of a business’s productive availability to carry out it’s day to day functions after downtime and interruptions. The events that can cause downtime include power outages, breaches in security, and natural disasters.

At Pisys we reduce business interruptions from downtime, getting your business back online and running as normal as soon as possible. As well as proactively ensuring all updates have been successfully installed.

Local virtualisation increases resource efficiency and offers more flexibility and options when needed to perform a recovery. General maintenance tasks also become quick and seamless reducing needed downtime. This technology often includes Hypervisors, VMware, and Hyper-V.

Backups- Backups are the most important part of a business continuity plan. Taking a backup of active files will allow data to be recovered if it is deleted or corrupted in the face of a hardware failure or cyber security incident. This should always have an offsite backup; however, a cloud backup is the best choice, giving the business options when needing to perform recovery. A file and folder backup are often efficient in restoring small amounts of files.

Physical Hardware – Physical hardware can be a key factor when looking at disaster recovery solutions.

Our engineers will discuss disaster recovery strategies with your business and can work alongside your IT department to put tests in place to ensure reliability and peace of mind, should the worst happen.

Disaster Recovery Solutions for Business Continuity

Disaster recovery (DR) solutions are just as important as backups. DR solutions will take a virtual copy of running servers and hardware plus a copy of the files. These solutions result in providing a way to run the virtual machines in the event of a hardware failure, giving you an extra tier of protection.
