Top 5 Business Continuity Checklist Items



1. Can you recover a failed or down system instantly without replacing the hardware?

Downtime costs you money. Being down for hours is simply unacceptable. DDKinfotech provides solutions that allow you to have servers booting instantly locally so that services can be restored and back in the right place in a matter of minutes.

2. Can you run your failed server from the Cloud?

It’s imperative that you have peace of mind that your critical business infrastructure can be brought online quickly in the cloud. This allows continuous uptime.  We are not talking about just files, we are talking about your actual system.

3. Does your back solution slow your Internet down?

It’s critical that your Backup Solution be able to prioritize if data is local or off-site.  Bandwidth is expensive and important to run your business critical application thus it is important that your backup solution manages bandwidth to provide greater flexibility, increased reliability, and higher transfer speeds of your off-site backups.

4. Is your data stored in multiple data centers, in geographically diverse locations?

This is important for three reasons. First, it ensures that even if data is removed locally, there is a secure copy off-site that can be restored. Second, it saves money because your local device capacity does not have to cover your entire backup repository. And third, in case of a regionalized disaster, at least one data center location must not be affected.

5. Is your data secure & encrypted at rest and during transmission?

You should choose a trusted vendor that provides highest level of data security possible, both locally and in the cloud.
