Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

What is it?

Business continuity aims to keep a business up-and-running during an incident which would otherwise disrupt normal operations.

Disaster recovery is more concerned with what needs to happen after such an incident to secure full restoration of functionality or operational effectiveness.

Workload Assessment, Classification, and Prioritisation

Ascertains the workloads – apps, mainly –which exist, their role within the organisation, and their level of relative criticality.

Protection and Recovery Targets
  • Builds on the preceding phase to set specific targets in relation to the Recovery Point Objective (RPO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for each workload.

 

  • Essentially, in a disaster scenario, how much data-loss can be tolerated, and how quickly access must be restored to recovered data.
Solution Design and Implementation

Takes the output of the previous phases to design and deploy the appropriate technologies to deliver on your resilience and recovery aspirations.

Why you need it...

Recover the Most Critical Systems First

  • By auditing your workloads and assigning appropriate priorities for resilience and recovery, hours or days can be saved by de-prioritising those less critical tasks or systems, leaving you to focus on those which matter most.

 

Avoid Wasted or Misallocated Budget

  • It makes no sense spending the same amount of money protecting a system which is only relied upon a handful of times per month, versus a critically important platform which facilitates crucial daily operations. Allocate budget accordingly.

 

Validated Recovery Protocols

  • Any decent solution will include some form of testing. Only when you test a BCDR plan can you truly know whether or not it will save you when you need it most.
