Disaster Recovery Solution Technical Specifications

Want to get a little more technical about our disaster recovery solution?

Scary fact: according to Avast, up to 50% of restores fail and 60% of backups are incomplete.

Often times, businesses do not realize how reliant they are on data. Imagine a scenario where your network goes down for days and you are unable to access critical files, client databases, accounting and financial documents, and just about every single file that your company has ever created or produced.

There are four questions you need to be asking yourself about your current disaster recovery and data protection strategy.

  • Do you think your company could still function without access to any of your data?
  • How do you think you could recover from an outage?
  • How quickly do you think you would be able to get your network up and running again?
  • Do you have a backup solution for your data already in place?


If so:

  • Are you positive that you can restore your data?
  • Do you know if your backups are 100% complete?
  • Have you tested your backup and recovery strategy?
