Reliable Business Continuity and Data Recovery Services
For the future of your SMB to be sustainable, you have to have reliable business continuity and data recovery services. Most people equate business continuity to data recovery. But the former goes beyond getting your systems up and running after a disaster. You could retrieve your data and applications from the cloud. But it would be meaningless if your teams can reach clients after a devastating fire, flood, or power outage.
During COVID-19, power-related and internet outages were the largest reasons organizations were forced to put their business continuity strategies into action. Many weren’t prepared…Are you?
What Does Continuity Mean for Your Business?
To understand what continuity means for your business, you need to have a look at the grim reality and statistics of IT downtime. According to Gartner, a single minute of downtime would cost $5,600, translating to a massive $336,000 per hour.
Since businesses operate differently, these figures may vary widely. Some organizations may lose as much as $140,000 per hour of downtime. While others may incur a whopping $540,000 for the same period. For some, it’s a matter of life and death, as the costs may soar beyond $5 million.
The chance is that your business may never recover completely if downtime extends to 24 hours. Even if you recover all your data and get you systems running again you may lose your customers to your competitors. This is why 40% of businesses collapse within 2 years after a major disaster according to FEMA. But EB Solution is here to take care of your business continuity needs by ensuring easy and reliable data recovery.
Here are some common causes of downtime:
Unexpected software updates and patches. You have to pause operations as you wait for the upgrade to complete, or the patch to apply. This may take minutes.
Human errors. Deleting wrong files, unplugging power cords, or accidentally spilling coffee on your laptop can result in downtime.
Server room issues. Servers may malfunction at times. With and without human error.
Power outages or failure. Some of your hardware rely on electricity, and won’t work when power fails. You would have to wait until power is restored.
Fires or explosions. They damage your hardware and cause your teams to vacate the premises, or pause whatever they are doing, hence, downtime.
Natural calamities such as earthquakes, floods, and storms. They disrupt the normal working environment.
