Effective data recovery can play an important role in ensuring businesses are able to swiftly recover from disaster.
It is therefore imperative for firms to ensure their plans are thorough when identifying those systems and documents that will be most highly prioritised for recovery in times of crisis, as failure to do so could result in unnecessary downtime for a business and increased associated costs.
William Chambers of TapScape revealed some of the most overlooked aspects of efficient disaster recovery include this lack of prioritising and a failure to properly consider the location of the data centre.
Even if firms are using cloud or virtual systems, this infrastructure has to be physically housed somewhere, so it pays for businesses to utilise data centres in areas that are at less risk of suffering natural disaster.
Finally, Mr Chambers noted many firms overlook the need for regular training and testing for data recovery plans, as while a process might look effective on paper, unless it is put into practice, a businesses can never truly be sure if the system delivers or not.
It is wise to choose a data recovery company who has a track record in recovering from the type of data loss you have experienced.
