Why put a disaster recovery plan in place?

Without a disaster recovery strategy, you are leaving your business extremely vulnerable; taking an unnecessary risks that could lead to a catastrophic outcome.

If you were to suddenly lose all your data: years of emails, documents and spreadsheets, databases, contacts, customer information, accounting data; would you be able to recover it all part or none?  Would you be able to recreate it and continue to operate effectively as a business?

Severe Data loss can cause serious business downtime. Data recovery can be costly in terms of lost productivity and with a badly managed solution not fully guaranteed in its effectiveness. The risk of permanently losing data or serious interruption to business operations is preventable with a reliable disaster recovery and business continuity strategy.

Statistics show that 40% of SMBs will go out of business if they are unable to recover their data within the first 24 hours of a crisis. 90% of companies that suffer a major data loss go out of business within two years*.
