If a disaster happens & you don't have a plan to restore your services it could cost you your business. 90% of Businesses without a plan end when a major disaster hits like a virus that encrypts all of your data or a server failure that makes your data unrecoverable. Poor setup will lead to failure & we see businesses setup improperly every day. Without a plan in place that poor setup could ensure that you do not get your business up & running in-time to save your business as every minute of being down costs you far more than proper tech support ever will.
Creating your Disaster Recovery plan will do a few things, the first being it will go through a comprehensive checklist of what you have setup & see if its setup properly. Many businesses have us come do a disaster recovery plan to ensure their internal staff or other Managed Services provider is properly managing your IT needs. Second the plan will collect all your IT & Support information into a single location so that it can be easily accessed should a disaster strike. Finally it will also show who will need to do what in a disaster scenario to restore you as quickly as possible. This is especially important in governmental, large or enterprise businesses in case the media needs to be informed or a lawyer needs to be contacted etc.

Managed Network & Managed Server redundancy is very important part of every disaster recovery plan. Having a second system setup & syncing with the first ensures the least amount of downtime when a disaster strikes.

An ounce of prevention is worth 100lbs of cure.
