Why You Need An IT Disaster Recovery Plan In Place

If you’re running or managing a business, then you know how important it is to keep your data safe and backed up on a consistent basis.

Consequently, working with an IT company who provides website hosting is a must. 

Here at SADOS, we provide a few different options for IT disaster recovery plans, so finding one to fit your needs should not be a problem.

Our plans cover any possible scenario, no matter how unlikely it may seem, and we have strategies in place to ensure your business can still operate as smoothly and as efficiently as possible, no matter what kind of outage or disaster you are facing.

The Most Common IT Disasters

Now, you may not think that an IT disaster can happen to you, but do you know why IT disasters happen? Well, there are a number of reasons. 

1. Hardware Failure

One of the most common causes of an IT disaster is a hardware failure. If you’re putting all of your digital eggs in one cyber basket, and that cyber basket breaks, those eggs aren’t going to be okay. 

Improvements to IT environments have mitigated instances of hardware failure — climate-controlled environments, software updates, and more — but no piece of equipment will work completely perfectly. With a backup in the cloud, you can rest assured, though.

2. Power Outages

According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average U.S. electricity customer experienced one outage in 2016. When the agency included major events, the average customer experienced 1.3 power outages. 

Given just how common power outages can be, having redundant plans in place only makes sense. Otherwise, your data may be gone in an instant.

3. User Error

Slips and mistakes can happen to the best of us. A simple typo during a routine maintenance check could spell disaster. Incorrectly trained employees could unwittingly ruin part of your IT infrastructure. 

Maybe they saved over a file, which led to disastrous ramifications on the system. These things can happen — after all, to err is human — but more importantly, they can be prevented and recovered from.

How To Handle IT Disasters

IT disasters can — and DO — happen. You need a partner who you can rely on to have your IT infrastructure’s back in the event of a hardware failure, power outage, or erroneous employee trying to do their best.

The good news is that you can count on us for prompt response time, ensuring your business will still be able to thrive and move forward. Check out some benefits of investing in a personalized disaster recovery plan below.

Reliable Back-up Destinations

Your safety is our number one priority, so we are totally committed to providing you with the most reliable back-up options available. Sometimes these will be on-site, while other times we will use resources like the cloud. In fact, over 80% of companies chose to utilize the cloud for their back-up option, and they saved significant dollars by doing so.

Frequent Backups

Every time your information is backed up, you will not have to deal with adding your entire data collection. Rather, new data is simply added to whatever was saved from the previous back-up. Along with this, your system is set up to back often, so you will lose as little information as possible, even if a big outage occurs.

The Peace of Mind You & Your Business Deserves

Let’s face it. You work hard every day to make your business a success, so you want to feel protected no matter what life throws your way.

We will ensure you are prepared for anything, and we will equip you with everything you need to feel at ease, so you can put all of your focus on making your business better and keeping your customers satisfied.

We Cover it All

When it comes to managing web servers, providing prompt IT help, and more, many IT networking companies simply do not provide the level of service necessary to get the job done right. 

We even offer web hosting services that guarantee you a stress-free process.

No matter what the issue is, we will work on fixing it asap and not quit until you are completely satisfied.

Contact us now, so we can find a plan that works well for you.
