Business Continuity

Downtime is real, and it’s costly. According to research by the Aberdeen Group, Across all businesses, it’s a staggering $163,674 per hour . Of course, the exact cost depends on company size: small companies lose approximately $8,581 per hour; medium companies $215,638 per hour; and large enterprises a whopping $686,250 for every hour of downtime.
The numbers speak for themselves: you need to plan for downtime.

Fact: Ransomware cost businesses worldwide over 8 Billion in 2018

Innovated Solutions Business Continuity customers didn’t pay a dime….

What causes downtime?

As it turns out, businesses should be more wary of their own employees than of natural disasters. Although hurricanes, tornadoes, and the like do their fair share of damage, research shows that natural disasters account for just 10 percent of downtime. The leading culprits? Network outages (50 percent) and human error (40 percent).
So you’ve been putting off protecting your data because you consider yourself in a safe zone. You need to understand that it’s far more likely that a server will malfunction, or that someone will hit the delete key on an important document.
No business can afford to be complacent.

Local or cloud backup?

The answer lies in between using local backup for quick restores, because the data is right there. It’s fast and easy to restore back to its original location and keeps the business humming. What happens if the power goes out, If the device fails, or it is stolen or destroyed in a natural or man-made disaster? You might think the cloud looks more attractive for all these reasons. Cloud-only backup is risky because you can’t control the bandwidth. Restores tend to be difficult and time-consuming. After all, the cloud can fail!

The answer?

A hybrid-cloud solution. The way this works: your data is first copied and stored on a local device. That way, if something happens, you can do a fast and easy restore from that device. Your data is also replicated in the cloud. If anything happens to that device, you’ve got offsite cloud copies of your data without having to worry about moving copies of your data offsite physically.
