Loss or corruption of data could result in significant business disruption and loss of revenues
Businesses generate large amounts of data and data files are changing throughout the workday. Data can be lost, corrupted, compromised or stolen through hardware failure, human error, hacking and malware. Data backup and recovery should be an integral part of the business continuity plan and information technology disaster recovery plan.
Servnet can assist business’ in developing a data backup strategy, which begins with identifying what data to backup, selecting and implementing hardware and software backup procedures, scheduling and conducting backups and periodically validating that data has been accurately backed up.
Phase 1: Backup set design
The way you backup your data matters. Scheduling, retention, exclusion and deletion all have an impact on your IT environment and your ability to recover from disaster cost effectively and non-disruptively. Our technicians design a plan tailored to your unique needs.
Phase 2: Monitoring, reporting & alerting
We monitor your backups every day and report on the completion, status and health of your backup sets. We detail any errors per individual backup set and proactively resolve any individual issues.
Phase 3 : We keep a close eye on your backups to ensure BaaS is growing and changing with your organisation, and not in spite of it. You don’t just get the daily operational health of you backups monitored but also monthly technical reviews of storage growth, changes to your infrastructure and overall SLA achievement means nothing is missed.
There are various levels of Backup as a Service. From basic hardware offerings, through to “Supreme” solutions, where businesses can have entire environments, including all backups, completely monitored and handled. This type of service includes having the restores performed for you; individual file restores can be taken on so your company no longer has to perform these.
The main benefits of BaaS include:
IT teams have never been busier and infrastructure has never been more complex. In addition to hardware failure and human error, we now need to deal with different data sources and the growing cyber threat.
Making sure your data can be recovered quickly without impacting operations is what backup is all about.
