Backup – It’s a Bright Idea

Backup - it's a bright Idea

Backup – It’s a bright idea

It’s World Backup Day today and  Sleepless are using the occasion to highlight the importance for all businesses to protect their critical data and systems.

To do this we are offering one month free backup to any business that signs up with Sleepless on World Backup Day (March 31st).

 

Does my business need backup

It’s the age of big data, our reliance on technology has never been higher. However, one thing many tend to overlook is that no matter how far technology has come it, much like ourselves, is not infallible. Technology is a resource and the best practice of any business is to have cover in place in the event of an essential resource becoming unavailable. We do so with suppliers, employees etc, so why not with technology?

Backup and replication services offer exactly this. If you have critical data that is essential to the continued operation of your business then having an alternative source to access this from is essential. If there are certain systems that are of the same importance, then replicating them to the cloud will allow you access to all necessary resources in the event of an emergency.

 

What are the advantages of Off Site Data Backup?

  • Redundant data storage in multiple locations.
  • Automatic backup thus removing the need for human intervention.
  • Unlimited data retention.
  • Scalable – based on your data load
  • Daily notifications

So why not sign up now for one month free business backup from Sleepless. It’s a bright idea.

‘Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Planning’

 

The importance of Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery planning for modern organisations can not be overstated. Without putting in place plans and procedures to effectively manage disasters, companies can face serious issues such as bankruptcy and loss of business. As the old saying goes “failing to plan is planning to fail”, that’s why we are making this planning template available to everyone.

 

In partnership with our technical partners Redstor we designed this template to better enable businesses to manage potential disasters and deal with common issues in and around the workplace. The template sets out to cover every aspect of your business and ensure that all areas are covered with an effective plan.

 

What is the scope of the plan?

It covers areas involving staff, IT issues, insurance, workplace issues, the management of supply and demand, and maintaining a good public image throughout a disaster through the use of public relations. The plan rates specific issues on an urgency levels scale as well as what the action should be for the specific issue. This will give the reader a thorough and clear idea of how to react to any issues that arise that may have an effect on the business.
