Backup and Disaster Recovery Assessments and Consulting

Total Computer Solutions

If an organization has never experienced a data loss, then the need for Backup and disaster recovery assessments and consulting may seem unimportant. After a group has experienced data loss, they understand the importance and are typically eager to have their solution reviewed and tested.

Don’t wait until after a server crash to confirm your backups are working correctly.

The Harsh Reality of Data Loss:

  • 93% of companies that lost their data for ten days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster and, 50% filed for bankruptcy immediately. (Source: National Archives & Records Administration in Washington.)
  • 20% of small to medium businesses will suffer a major disaster causing loss of critical data every five years. (Source: Richmond House Group)
  • This year, 40% of small to medium businesses that manage their network and use the Internet for more than e-mail will have their network accessed by a hacker, and more than 50% will not even know they have been attacked. (Source: Gartner Group)

Highlights of the Service:

  • A backup system assessment to determine if your organization is at risk
  • Engineer a complete solution designed to reduce server downtime with a specialized backup and virtual server appliance
  • Allows near real-time backups, as frequent as every 15 minutes
  • Offers offsite storage at an affordable cost
  • Provides a low cost, a speedy disaster recovery process
  • Data is encrypted, so it is not accessible to anyone, either on the appliance or at the remote storage facility without the passkey
  • Eliminates the cost and time of managing on-site tape backup. We monitor and manage the entire process.
  • All costs: frequent on-site backups, an on-site virtual server(optional), remote storage, disaster recovery in the event of a catastrophe, and 24/7 management of the entire process bundled at a price comparable to that of the overall cost of buying and managing tape backup.

State-of-the-Art Technology

  • Standby server: An Appliance that can quickly convert to a virtual server (optional)
  • Our solution allows for seamless, daily off-site storage
  • Data stored offsite at two locations, one in this region for faster recovery and one out of the region for additional safety.
  • Easy restoration, remotely done by our engineers.
  • The appliance provides the capability to perform bare metal restores to dissimilar hardware with minimal downtime

Restoration and Virtualization

  • All restores: our technical team can restore individual files, file folders, email messages, and Exchange mailboxes.
  • The appliance can be outfitted with optional virtualization software making it a stand-by server. Allowing a physical server that has failed to restore on the device as a virtual image giving you a  working server in less than 60 minutes (in most cases after notification of an actual server crash) Backup of additional servers can also continue at the same time.

Additional Features

  • Bare-metal restore to dissimilar hardware. When new hardware/spares arrive, the virtual image can be shut down, and the latest backup image can be used to perform a bare-metal install on the new hardware.
  • In the event of a catastrophe, a new appliance will be imaged at our facility and sent to you in less than two days. This does require that you are sending full images of your servers off-site.
  • For security purposes, your data will never be hosted, only stored at the collocation facility. It is encrypted without the encryption key; it will not be accessible.
