Data-driven companies and organizations need data storage technology to protect their business. Those that delay integrating digital recording and storage in their data gathering could be disadvantaged if natural or man-made calamities strike. Apart from losing precious data, they could lose their customers’ trust and suffer revenue losses.
As an IT consulting and data recovery specialist, Justice IT Consulting can respond to your emergency calls and visit your Texas office. Still, we recommend that you install disaster recovery and quick backup systems that guarantee business continuity.
You can avoid suffering massive financial losses by implementing continuous data backup systems. These are more reliable than your standard backup hard drives. They provide consistent data backup and constant availability — features that enable you to continue doing business regardless of interruptions in the workplace. They’re especially helpful if you don’t have an in-house IT team to respond to technical glitches and system downtimes.
More than data storage and backup, data-driven businesses need continuous uptime. Having both — secure storage and real-time backup — is the essence of business continuity.
Consider a retail company that processes over a hundred orders per day through e-commerce. Its website automatically sends the customer’s personal, banking, and purchase details into a database. Let’s suppose the website’s server crashes and loses the purchase details it collected during the day. With a backup schedule, the company should be able to recover the data collated up to the last scheduled backup.
So, how about the data that came in after the last backup? You could still recover them with a powerful data recovery system, which Justice IT Consulting can provide for you.
Here’s something to think about, though: Wouldn’t it be better if you don’t have to do data recovery? Wouldn’t it be better to have a real-time backup? You could then access the latest data, and some areas of your operations could continue even if your e-commerce website is down.
Data recovery is valuable because it prevents the loss of business due to deleted, corrupted, or lost records. Still, it would be unwise to depend on it alone. Better to avoid the loss of data than to worry about recovering it after the fact.
This is where business continuity comes in. Continuous uptime and data backup, whether through cloud or hard drive storage (or even both), ensure your business doesn’t lose clients over lost data due to server failure or hardware damage.
Budget constraints may limit a company’s ability to procure all the necessary data backup and recovery tech, and we understand that. If there has to be a choice, a system that ensures business continuity would be the better one. It’s the more practical investment because it provides 24/7 uptime and access to valuable data.
Software dedicated for data recovery, on the other hand, is necessary only when there’s data loss. It’s a one-time purchase that can be used more than once, but not all the time (and if a company does use it frequently, its data infrastructure may need an upgrade).
We can tell you more about business continuity tech and how it, along with data recovery, can save you from losing thousands in revenue. Contact Justice IT Consulting and let’s talk about your business continuity and disaster recovery plan.
