Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR) vs. Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR)
While evaluating your options for disaster preparation, you might wonder if backup solutions and/or backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solutions alone are adequate. However, there are a few issues with relying on these options by themselves.
Here are the answers to some common questions you might have about why your business needs BCDR.
- File-based backups just don't cut it.
- If you lose a server and only have access to files, then spinning up a new server will necessitate taking a significant amount of time to locate application software and drivers, perform importing, ensure correct versioning, and so on.
BDR solutions take things one step further by taking an important snapshot to allow you to complete a quick restore. However, you'll need to consider the following:
- If you lose your hardware, then what's your game plan?
- If you lose your main site, then what will you do?
BCDR involves various strategies and solutions to not only help your business recover as fast as possible following a disaster but also ensure you'll be able to continue routine operations. A BCDR plan typically involves two distinct components (business continuity and disaster recovery) that work together to keep your organization afloat after a catastrophe.
A business continuity plan makes it possible for your business to keep operating in the wake of a disaster. Notable advantages include remote work capabilities, less downtime, and improved customer service (since IT systems going down can cut communication between you and your clients). At Stratosphere Networks, we provide business and IT management continuity services so that you can rest assured your company will continue operating even if disaster strikes.
Disaster recovery ensures that in the event of a disaster, you can retrieve your data and restore your system to its original state. At Stratosphere Networks, we backup your data with recovery in mind by utilizing state-of-the-art hardware, software and proactive monitoring to create the optimal backup and recovery environment.
DRaaS offerings leverage cloud resources to back up your applications and data and ensure minimal downtime in the event of a disaster. These solutions appeal to many businesses due to their flexibility, relatively low cost and rapid deployment capabilities, among other advantages.
The damage from disasters both natural and manmade often spans far beyond your physical place of business. While offices can be rebuilt and furniture can be replaced, data may not be so easily recoverable. Additionally, failing to bounce back quickly could not only cost your business time and money but could also hurt customers' perception of your company.
BCDR could be the difference between coming out on top and closing your doors after a disaster. If you want to protect your clients, your business and your peace of mind, BCDR is a great choice for your business.
