Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity

Disaster recovery (DR) is all about having a strategy for your business that will minimise the disruption and damage to your operation if the unthinkable were to happen.

A Disaster recovery plan will ensure that you are able to carry out a fast, full system recovery to get your business up and running again quickly. In many cases your clients or customers would expect you to have a viable DR plan in place and, in larger organisations, it would be a prerequisite to agreeing to work with you as a supplier.

The importance of proper planning and preparation to protect your IT infrastructure against major disruption is becoming ever more important, as organisations become increasingly reliant on their systems and cannot afford downtime.

Disruption can have a negative impact on the productivity and credibility of your organisation and can ultimately result in reputational damage and a loss of business.

Platform 365 have vast experience in planning, implementing and maintaining bespoke disaster recovery (DR) and business continuity plan (BCP) solutions for both corporate and SME clients alike. Through our full disaster recovery audits, we can help your business to carry out a risk assessment and business impact analysis to ensure that every eventuality has been considered, taking away the worry of “what if”.

Backup Services

Backup services focus on the recovery and restoration of data that might have been lost due to human error, file corruption, a virus or a system failure.

Data is the life blood of business; it is a critical business asset. Regardless of size or industry sector, protecting data must be a priority.
Secure offsite online data backup is a fundamental requirement in today’s world of external and internal IT threats and is a fundamental part of any comprehensive disaster recovery plan.

Platform 365’s hosted IT backup and recovery-as-a-service provides a fully managed solution that delivers on-site hardware and off-site data storage and replication, all paid for on a monthly basis.

Your backups are kept on site on a dedicated encrypted server. We also backup your data to a secure data centre. This means you are covered if you face a disaster that affects your office location.

Most of the time, our reasons for restoring client data are not as dramatic as a disaster scenario. Often it is simply due to human error such as clients inadvertently deleting data. No matter what the reason, having a backup is essential to the continuity of your business.

As part of our fail-safe service our technicians proactively monitor the entire backup process and carry out test restores to ensure everything is working as expected.
