Could Your Business Survive a Catastrophic Loss Of Critical Data?

Talk to Us About Disaster Solutions and Planning


Only Six percent of companies suffering from a catastrophic data loss survive, 43% never reopen and from the remaining, 51% close within two years. These are worrying statistics from the University of Texas, when they researched catastrophic data loss. By catastrophic we mean an event which prevents access to any business critical data, this could be a hard disk failure, theft, fire, flood, storm or even an act of terrorism.

"But Our Backup Is On Off-Site Tapes" Tape backup in itself is a great way to archieve and backup data. However when faced with a catastrophic disaster, you will experience some severe delays in the time it takes to recover the system to a state where you can log on and access your data. A better way to recover from a disaster situation is to use a disk based image software which takes a snapshot of your servers complete with all data and settings, this snapshot is stored onto a removable hard disk. In the event of an emergency the whole entire server system can be replicated onto a new server (hardware can be different) within a few hours, drastically reducing the time delays.

Using our imaged based backup and recovery solution we can have your business back up and running within hours of a disaster, even at a different site, with different hardware. With a tape based system this can take days. Remember IT-MK Limited can help you with all of your Disaster Recovery Planning (DRP) and Disaster Recovery Solutions (DRS) bespoke to your business.
