backup and disaster recovery

Can Your Business Survive Data Loss?

Backup/Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Planning are a cause of continuous stress and worry for many organizations. How do you keep your systems and company running in or after a disaster situation?

Here are a few statistics to sharpen the mind:

  • 6% of all PCs will suffer an episode of data loss in any given year.
  • 30% of all businesses that have a major fire go out of business within a year. 70% fail within five years.
  • 31% of PC users have lost all of their files due to events beyond their control.
  • 34% of companies fail to test their tape backups, and of those that do, 77% have found tape back-up failures.
  • 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster.
  • 93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. 50% of businesses that found themselves without data management for this same time period filed for bankruptcy immediately.
  • Companies that aren't able to resume operations within ten days (of a disaster hit) are not likely to survive.
  • Simple drive recovery can cost upwards of $7,500 and success is not guaranteed.

Some solutions which deliver Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity plans and services often do not deliver the infrastructure or build the IT systems which are resilient or operational immediately in a disaster situation. AICIT fills that gap, we can design, build and manage (if required) your IT systems, so that, in a disaster, your infrastructure is covered - from an IT standpoint.

Today’s enterprises face a growing data protection challenge: how to optimize the backup and recovery of a volume of business-critical data that grows larger each day and, in many cases, doubles each year. Most enterprises are finding that their IT footprint and storage resources continue to grow at a rate of 40 to 50 percent per year, which adds considerable complexity to their existing data protection strategies. This challenge becomes yet more difficult as companies migrate from stand-alone server backups to enterprise wide backups that are performed across the local area network (LAN) and storage area network (SAN) environments.

With the data protection landscape becoming more distributed and IT resources increasingly constrained, businesses need a centralized data protection strategy that can efficiently manage multiple backup and recovery jobs across the enterprise. In addition, the data protection strategy must be able to support an off-site backup strategy to efficiently minimize the impact on mission critical applications and network user interruption, and take advantage of the speed of disk to disk based data protection.
