Data Backup, Disaster Recovery & Business Continutity

Expect the unexpected - prepare your business to bounce back from costly cataclysmic events that could grind your operations to a halt 

Limit your losses when disaster strikes

Fire. Tornado. Theft. Cyber attack. Employee error. Following a cataclysmic event that disrupts your small business, you need to spin your operations up again as quickly as possible. Proactive protection and preservation of your company's critical data and computer systems is essential to reduce or eliminate the devastating financial impact of lost sales, lost productivity, costly IT equipment repair and replacement bills after a disaster.

 

ELBO's backup and disaster recovery (BDR) service is a cohesive combination of data backup and disaster recovery solutions that help ensure your company’s business continuity.

Reliable data backups

Data backups protect your business by making your data more secure. One of the greatest impacts of IT disasters is data loss - it can cripple an SMB in a second, but it can also lead to revenue reductions. Stalled production and productivity, missed deadlines and dissatisfied customers result in decreased profit margins. Regular scheduled backups ensure that, even if the worst happens, you will have access to your company's most valuable asset: your data.

A multi-layered backup strategy like ELBO's is essential when it comes to safeguarding your data integrity:

  • On-site and off-site

  • Continuous data protection or regularly scheduled backups, depending on your needs

  • Multiple encrypted copies of the data on your servers and critical devices on

    • external drives,

    • network-attached storage (NAS),

    • local backup server and

    • in the cloud.

Our efficient, professionally managed data backup processes let you focus on growing your business as only you can. 

a comprehensive disaster plan

Backups are one vital component of your company's disaster recovery strategy, but simply having backups available doesn't make effective recovery certain. Your business's BDR plan needs to ensure that, even in the event of losing your entire IT infrastructure, you can recover all of your systems in the least amount of time with the least amount of data loss. And it's important to remember that one size does not fit all when it comes to disaster planning. We help you develop a customized backup and disaster recovery plan by working closely with you to

  • Identify your mission-critical systems and make restoring them the top recovery priority

  • Determine how fast you need to bring systems back online (recovery time objectives, or RTO)

  • Define the maximum acceptable length of time that data can be restored from (recovery point objectives, or RPO)

ELBO's data backup and recovery planning services keep your people working and critical operations humming - even when disaster strikes

Integral to Business continuity

Continuous IT operations are a bedrock element of your company's top-to-bottom business continuity plan. The process of ranking your recovery priorities in terms of client protection, regulatory implications and revenue pinpoints the data and applications that are crucial to your organization's steady day to day. It guides you and your IT team in making sure the right recovery systems are in place to connect your people to error-free backups when everything is on the line.

 

Pulling off seamless operational flow only works if your employees aren't forced to adapt on a dime to a different way of doing their jobs. Successful business continuity planning keeps critical operations functioning so that your business can continue to conduct business as usual - even under unusual business circumstances.

Your roadmap to recovery success

Companies that don't take disaster recover seriously until they are significantly impacted by dire IT disaster face steeper cost consequences than if they had been prepared. Charting a reliable roadmap to uninterrupted access to your business resources in the face of sudden disruption requires collaboration with a trusted, time-tested local managed IT services provider.
