Backup and disaster recovery is such a big and important topic that we firmly believe that an “average” plan just isn’t good enough. After all, if you knew that some sort of disaster was going to strike your business in the future, wouldn’t you make every effort to ensure that you could be back up and running quickly?

Since you never know where that disaster could be lurking, it’s important to be prepared. But what makes a backup and disaster recovery plan great, instead of just ordinary? Here are three things that make all the difference:

  1. A great backup and disaster recovery plan is comprehensive. By comprehensive, we mean that it includes all of the data, software, and maybe even hardware that you would need to return to profitability quickly.
  2. A great backup and disaster recovery plan can be put into action quickly. Once you lose your technology, your business is on the clock, and time is money. You want to ensure that you can be back online within hours, not days or weeks.
  3. A great backup and disaster recovery plan has been tested. Until your backups have been verified, they aren’t of much use to you, since you can’t count on that with any degree of confidence. A good outsourced IT team will double-check them regularly to ensure that they are ready to be implemented at a moment’s notice.
