Is your business ready to weather any storm?
Having quality IT support whether internal or outsourced is a must in today’s technological world.
Here are 10 important questions for Business Continuity to ask.
1 – Do you provide a hybrid cloud backup solution? A hybrid cloud backup solution is optimal to achieve intelligent business continuity, as it encapsulates the best of the private and public models to form a feature rich, highly efficient, and affordable system.
2 – Can you provide us instant local virtualization? Downtime costs you money. Being down for hours is simply unacceptable. Current backup and disaster relief (BDR) solutions should allow you to have servers booting instantly locally so that your business services can be restored and back in the right place in a matter of minutes.
3 – Can you provide proof of backup? What proof do you have of successful data backup? Your BDR vendor should be able to provide screenshot verification.
4 – Do you virtualize off-site? It’s imperative to have the peace of mind that your critical business infrastructure can be brought online quickly in the cloud. This allows continuous up-time.
5 – Do you deliver an off-site sync method that manages bandwidth? It’s critical that a BDR solution be able to prioritize if data is local or off-site, thus managing bandwidth to provide greater flexibility, increased reliability, and higher transfer speeds of your off-site backups.
6 – Do you have multiple data centers, in geographically diverse locations? This is important for three reasons. First, it ensures that even if data is removed locally, there is a secure copy off-site that can be restored. Second, it saves money because your local device capacity does not have to cover your entire backup repository. And third, in case of a regional disaster, at least one data center location must not be affected.
7 – Do you offer flexible contracts and upgrade policies? Constant change is a fact of life in IT. It’s critical to select a vendor whose goal is to help its clients succeed, by offering flexible contracts and upgrade policies that won’t trap you long-term.
8 – Do you provide US based technical support? If you’re in the middle of a backup or disaster crisis, you need the best technical and customer support available, at the time it’s required.
9 – Do you focus exclusively on your customers? Choose a partner that is 100% committed to your success, and only succeeds when its partners succeed.
10 – Do you offer Intelligent Business Continuity? Only an intelligent business continuity solution takes BDR to the next level, to mitigate risk and keep your systems running in the event of a technical or natural disaster.
