As your business grows so does the cost of downtime risk to the business. As you expand more offices in more locations the likelihood of a disaster event increases. Disasters can be as simple as a power outage or as far reaching as a power spike hitting your data center to fires, chemical spills and earthquakes. You need to know your tolerance for data loss and recovery time as measured by system Recovery Point Objective (RTO) and Recovery Time Objective (RTO)
Scorpion helps assess your Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity position by answering questions such as:
• What are the core functions needed in order to carry on your business?
• Does your staff know what to do in the event of a business disruption?
• Does your staff have the ability to connect and work from home for an extended period of time?
• Is your ALL your data really backed up?
• Has anyone ever successfully restored the systems from your data backup?
• Are your backups taken offsite frequently enough?
• If weekly, can your business afford to loose a week of data?
• If an event occurs that disables your data center, do you have any standby pre-configured hardware to restore it to?
• If not then how long would the business be down while you source and set up new hardware?
• When was the last time your company participated in a full scale realistic unannounced Disaster Recovery exercise to know if its plans work?
Scorpion will find the true answers to these questions and present you with options appropriate for your size and type of business. Options presented will vary from having outsourcing recovery to a cold failover (4hrs+) data center or perhaps you are large enough now for a hot failover (<5 seconds) data center. We help you evaluate the cost of these options against the cost to the business of not having them before it’s too late.
