Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery are two key components in protecting businesses in the event of unplanned catastrophes. Every company needs to have a solid Disaster Recovery Plan in place to protect mission-critical data. Disaster Recovery ensures that critical data is affordably backed up and a corresponding reimplementation plan is in place. DR is a large part of any Business Continuity Plan.
Businesses who rely heavily on data and complex processes in their daily work need to document a strategic plan that allows them to operate continuously with little to no service outages or downtime. This is referred to as Business Continuity planning. At best, such a plan ensures optimal uptime for your company. At worst, having a Business Continuity plan can make the difference between your company thriving or dissolving in the event of a disaster.
Business Continuity planning is more than backing up your files in case of an emergency. Business Continuity is process-focused, digging deeper than a Disaster Recovery plan to ensure workflows are continuously operating despite any external or unforeseen factors that would otherwise disrupt business processes.
Unlike the universal need for Disaster Recovery, Business Continuity works best for specific types of work environments. This dedicated planning is designed to help organizations that rely heavily on transactional, detailed processes. Business Continuity measures may require several server and storage redundancies that provide the support needed to maximize uptime and assure workflow process continuity. This next-level planning even takes alternate personnel and locations into account to ensure your business operations run smoothly 365 days a year.
