Backup and Business Continuity

When your server crashes, you get hit with a computer virus, ransomware encrypts your business data or you experience a power outage, keeping your business up and running with minimal data loss and customer frustration is paramount.

Local, Cloud or Hybrid Backups

Ideally, your data should exist in at least three places – on the original server or PC, in an on-site backup, and in a cloud or off site location.

Our hybrid local and cloud solution is the most resilient option for managed backups and business continuity.  It takes snapshots of your data at regular intervals and has the ability to boot your server or PC in the cloud virtually if needed.

Backup Confidence

An often overlooked, but vital area is ongoing backup testing and management. As part of a backup plan we monitor, test and check your backups for you. Nothing is ever static, and as your business changes it is important that your backups are reviewed and adjusted to accommodate these changes.  We test your backups at regular intervals, and send you daily screenshots of your servers booted virtually in the cloud.

Don’t Leave Your Business Exposed

Businesses often have a multitude of back-up systems incompatible with each other and when the back-up is needed for swift business continuity it takes a long time to manage the process – which is potentially expensive and damaging for the business, not least in terms of the company’s reputation.  Smooth IT’s solution ensures security and safety for your data and keeps your business running smoothly no matter what happens.

The technology we use for our IT backup and Business Continuity service not only provides a cost effective solution, it has many unique functions which will mean you can restore a full server image either onsite (with on-premise hardware) or in the cloud with a full off-site replica.

Should the business endure an environmental disaster we can allow access from temporary locations.

Consider this:

  • 25% of PCs will fail this year.
  • 24% of companies said they experienced a full data disaster.
  • 70% of small businesses that experience a major data loss go out of business within a year.
  • Only one third of businesses check their data back up and of those, only three quarters have been found to work

A business continuity solution is the answer.  It’s more than backup alone can offer.  And it’s more cost effective and easier to manage than you may think. Let us show you.
