Trust eFlux to Manage Your Critical Business IT Assets
It is fair to say that I.T can challenge your business, no matter what product or service you offer. Many people understand that when a computer glitch occurs, there are often a few simple steps to get you working again, but what would you do if you unexpectedly found that you could not connect to your servers and began to experience complete IT meltdown?
Most business owners don’t realise that this happens far more often than expected and this is where eFlux can help. eFlux can audit and help you create a plan for IT disasters big or small, so you can restore functionality within a lead time ideal for the business.
If you don’t have a disaster recovery solution or plan yet, eFlux can help you to embrace an IT disaster recovery plan (DR) specifically designed for your business so that you can confidently deliver and restore to normal business operations with minimal downtime.
How do you plan for IT disaster recovery?
The responsibilities of a disaster recovery plan lies within a collective approach to include people, processes, policies, and technologies.
The theory of disaster recovery can apply to any business size, though it goes without saying, as the number of computers, people and business operations grows, simple back up applications can often run into difficulties.
It surprises eFlux the number of businesses that have backup systems in place that are rarely tested to ensure that the data integrity of the backups is as expected and fit for purpose. It is not a good time to find out that the backup data is corrupt or not there when you are in a real recovery or disaster situation. Never fear, eFlux can avert this disaster by auditing your current disaster recovery procedures and backup solution and provide you with best practice advice on where you stand today should a disaster occur and how you can improve what you are doing today.
