Backup, Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

Home » Get easy inexpensive backup and recovery for computers & Microsoft365

Even in todays online world, backup is an essential requirement for all businesses. This includes Microsoft 365 – it might be online, but it isn’t backed-up in any meaningful sense! We use Cove Data Protection, which is an online backup & disaster recovery tool that it fully automatic in operation – truly install & let it run.

In operation the backup client on the protected computer runs on a schedule, sending any new or changed data to the cloud-based secure servers. Once there we can monitor the backup for completeness and remediate any issues as they occur.

This is the basic system – but it is modular. You can add on a local data store, cloud-based validation tests or even have a “hot stand-by system” keeping a copy of the latest version ready to run if the worst happens to your system.

Planning For Worst Case Scenarios…

As a responsible manager you have to plan for the worst: so just imagine arriving at your office one morning to find it flooded out. It’s unlikely – but far from impossible (Worcester has it’s fair share of flooding!).

It’s now your job to get your business back up and running with the minimum impact on your customers, your turnover and your cash-flow.

Assuming you have been diligent, you’ll have an off-site backup in the cloud. Recovery is now a matter of deploying this. How long it takes depends on how many of the options you have taken up: if you have taken the “hot stand-by” option  then it could be as little as an hour. If you have to wait for the recovery image to be built it might take a day. But either way it’s much, much better than no backup at all…
