January marked the 20th anniversary of the Northridge earthquake – a devastating temblor that cost Southern California economy a whopping $49 billion.
It is a geologic certainty that there will be more earthquakes in the region – and possibly one more devastating than the 6.7-magnitude temblor that struck Northridge in 1994. We can also count on a myriad of more mundane events that could hamper your business: power outages, cyber-attacks and plain old file corruption.
The ideal today is Business Continuity: If your systems go down, how quickly can you get up and running again? If you’re still relying on traditional backup methods like tape, disk and strict NAS devices, it could take you days – or even weeks – to recover your data after a disaster occurs.
Imagine a system where your downtime after a disaster is reduced to hours, minutes – or even seconds.
“When full business continuity is achieved, it fully prepares a business to not only recover from a disaster, but also protects the business from the averse effects of that disaster,” says Brian Mandell, of Datto Backup, one of our preferred partners for our managed service clients.
Did you know that tape failure rates exceed 50% when recovering data? Or that 60% of on-site disasters are actually due to human error?
Datto’s full automation backup process means there is very little manual management required. Encrypted backups are verified instantly so you know they have been successful, and they’re saved in multiple locations, both on local appliances and bi-coastal data centers.
This eliminates downtime in the event of a disaster by allowing your business to run off the secure cloud, and minimizes the risk of corrupted backups or data loss.
Mandell will demonstrate Datto’s backup solutions at our Power Your Business with the Cloud Executive Briefing on June 17, where attendees will also hear from actual Datalink clients who are currently enjoying the service.
They will be joined by Microsoft executive Glenn Osako, who will demonstrate how small-to-medium businesses can put their teams to work more efficiently in the cloud with Office 365.
