How prepared is your business for a disaster?
Disasters can come in many forms and they can happen when you least expect it. Only 6% of companies that suffer catastrophic data loss survive while 43% never reopen and 51% close within 2 years of the disaster. 93% of the companies that did not have their data backed up in the event of a disaster went out of business.

Protect your business from:
- Power Outages

The important thing is to be prepared so critical data can be recovered and your organization can become operational as soon as possible. A disaster recovery plan is essential in these cases. A well-planned backup and recovery solution plays a crucial role in minimizing downtime in a disaster and preventing data loss in the event of server or application failure. What makes a true disaster recovery solution is the ability to restore full systems quickly, in a matter of hours or even minutes, on available computing resources which may be local, but may also be remote if the situation dictates. Our cost-effective solutions can be combined with your existing disaster recovery plan to complement or enhance it as needed. Our expert staff will design a comprehensive solution that assures the availability, security and recoverability of your infrastructure. Knowing that your data is backed up locally and off-site will make it easier for you to concentrate entirely on your business.
