The degree to which you need your systems to provide high availability (HA) depends
on how much your company relies on it’s IT infrastructure. If system downtime would
render your company unable to perform it’s vital business functions, then you need
to understand the different HA options and plan accordingly.
Likewise, backups are a key, but often neglected, part of any IT infrastructure.
The Department of Trade and Industry state that 70% of businesses that suffer computer
and data loss go out of business within 18 months.
Both HA and backups should form part of your Disaster Recovery plan. This is a document
that outlines the procedures and timescales to be followed to resurrect your IT systems
in the event of a disaster (for example fire, flooding, theft etc).
BIT Stream Backup
BIT Stream Backup removes the burden and common problems of using conventional backup
devices, tapes and software. Click on the icon below for more information.
For many medium-sized companies, conventional backup methods still provide a cost
effective and reliable solution. We do, however, add a modern twist to the way in
which these are implemented.
We can design and implement a range of products and services including Microsoft
and Linux Clustering technologies, Virtualisation, data replication and fault tolerance
to help ensure minimal down time.
A disaster recovery strategy, not just for your IT systems, is a key document for
any business. We will help you design a strategy and also assist with ‘dummy runs’
to ensure it works.
