IT Disaster Recovery Plan

We offer a state-of-the-art cloud backup and recovery service to ensure that no matter how or when your technology fails, you can be back up and running in minutes.

A Data Backup and Recovery Service will prevent you from getting caught out when your primary storage fails.

Poor backup configuration, ineffective testing, and failure to establish a long-term backup regime can cost your business everything when something goes wrong and you lose data permanently.

Also known as Backup-as-a-Service, you can combine our backup service with other managed services or consume it as a standalone. So, let’s talk. We can backup your data safely and cost-effectively for as long as you want to retain it, allowing your business processes to continue at all times.

What is an IT Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP)?

It’s always good to be prepared – and with a Computer One disaster recovery plan, you can be prepared for anything.

An IT disaster recovery plan sets the procedures that protect and ensure the recovery of your company’s IT infrastructure, systems and data after moments of disruption. The procedures minimise data loss, help maintain business continuity, and mitigate the overall impact.

Every recovery plan also includes a recovery time objective and recovery point objective, which define the maximum amount of time before your critical systems will be back online after disruption and the maximum amount of time between data backups prior to a disruption. When we design an IT disaster recovery plan, we provide advice on these two objectives after conducting a detailed analysis of your business operations and the scale of your disaster recovery footprint.

IT Disaster Recovery Plan FAQs

What sort of disasters do disaster recovery plans cover?

IT recovery plans can protect your data and business operations against cyber attacks, hardware and software failures, security breaches, power outages or  natural disasters that affect any IT systems or equipment, such as flooding and fire.

How often should my recovery plan be updated?

The frequency with which you should review your IT disaster recovery plan generally depends on the size of your business, although we recommend doing so at least annually or after any significant changes to your IT infrastructure.

Is a disaster recovery plan different from a business continuity plan?

Yes, there is a difference between the two. While business continuity planning focuses on designing strategies that will maintain normal operations if a disruptive event were to occur, an IT disaster recovery plan process specifically focuses on the recovery of a company’s IT infrastructure, systems and data.

What are the key elements of an IT disaster recovery plan?

An effective IT disaster recovery plan should include a comprehensive risk assessment, a detailed inventory of critical data, applications, and IT infrastructure, a clear recovery strategy, and a communication plan. It should also identify roles and responsibilities of key personnel, backups for both on-site and off-site storage, and testing procedures to ensure the plan is effective.
