Business Continuity describes the development of strategies and plans with the goal of constant availability of infrastructure and data, thus ensuring the continuous working ability of organizations.
Business continuity is not one product, but rather includes a concept of co-ordinated IT solutions, defined procedures and schedules, as well as the knowledge required to prevent failures and to remain able to work in disaster scenarios.
Data security is not the same as availability
Apart from the conceptual avoidance of interruptions by IT failures (incident management), it is important in the context of IT contingency planning also to ensure the quickest possible restoration of operational capability in the event of a disaster.
The time to re-commissioning an IT infrastructure can be several days, even in the presence of regular backups. Do you know how long it takes to procure the most important parts of your new infrastructure, to set up operating systems, middleware and applications, and to play back the data and to restore the operational ability?
It starts with your requirements
Not every application is critical to the company. Not every system must meet the highest SLAs. For systems such as archives, software distribution, systems test, etc. usually lower SLAs can be applied.
In the rarest cases, ensuring business continuity for a complete infrastructure can be justified economically.
It is important to understand the processes of an organization, to identify the business-critical procedures and the underlying systems and data. Then adopting a business continuity concept not only enhances for operational safety, but is also a good business sense. We use our years of experience with different scenarios, proven concepts - supplemented with the latest technology - to provide you with a tailor-made business continuity solution, for you to remain viable for individual events or in the event of a disaster.
