Disaster Recovery

Your disaster recovery plan needs to include a set of well-defined, realistic objectives firmly rooted in your business needs. Your plan must include planning, preparation, and guidelines for implementation. To create a solid plan, it is essential to analyze the impact and risks a disaster could have on your business and to prioritize applications and data during the recovery process.

The right technology can help with your disaster recovery efforts. Virtualization, replication and cloud computing allow for business continuity during disaster recovery efforts. The right technology protects your vital data and restores them rapidly. Florida IT Pros can analyze your current disaster recovery system and recommend a new system utilizing the best technology so you won’t have to worry about experiencing long downtimes if a disaster strikes. You can also minimize downtime during upgrades and other necessary tasks.

A Closer Look at Downtime

Downtime falls into two categories – planned and unplanned downtime.

Unplanned downtime is typically the biggest fear, but it only represents 5-10 percent of all downtime. Unplanned downtime is often a consequence of security breaches, data corruption, failed upgrades, mistakes, and disasters. In most cases, unplanned downtime is a result of people and process problems. It might not happen very often, but when it does, it can be a disaster. Every second counts, and if you don’t have a good disaster recovery plan in place, unplanned downtime can cause your business to close its doors for good.

Planned downtime is much more prevalent and causes quite a challenge. Planned downtime is caused by a variety of factors, including upgrades, batch jobs, and performance tuning. While these tasks have to happen, they can be detrimental to your business. It is essential you learn how to minimize this downtime to improve customer relationships and maximize your company’s efficiency and productivity.

The Cost of Planned and Unplanned Downtime

All downtime, whether it is planned or unplanned, comes at a cost. The cost of downtime for your business depends on various factors, such as the size of your operation. On average, every hour of IT downtime costs enterprises between $84,000 and $108,000. Most businesses who go through a prolonged period of downtime go out of business completely as they simply cannot recover from all of the lost revenue.

It is important to understand the cost of downtime for your specific business. Our consultants will analyze a variety of factors to determine how much each hour of downtime costs you. This will help you understand the true danger of planned and unplanned downtime.

Office Locations We Manage

We provide numerous solution for our clients, ensuring that everyone who uses us gets the service that they need.

1. South Florida Locations – Many of our clients are located within driving distance of our West Palm Beach office. We drive to locations as far north as Port St. Lucie and as far south as Coral Gables. If your office is in this area, we can drive out to it whenever you need service.

2. South Florida Offices, with Additional Location Around the Globe – When our clients have offices in both South Florida and in other locations, we take a two-pronged approach to IT management. We can travel as far as 1.5 hours to provide local support as needed, and we can also manage other systems remotely. We will require some minor help from a person at the location when we remote in, but we will talk the on-site person through any steps necessary to fix a problem.

3. Located Anywhere – We have clients located all around the globe who do not require any on-site assistance. These clients might be as close as South Florida or as far as China. We take care of everything remotely for these clients. The company’s employees assist us with basic support duties, and for complicated projects, we find a local provider to take care of the issue. For instance, if one of our remote clients requires a new electrical outlet for a network cable, we will find a reputable vendor close by. We will coordinate the entire project and get approval before moving forward.

If you are a remote client, we can travel to your location once a year, if needed. However, this is typically not necessary, as most projects can be managed remotely.
