Backup & Disaster Recovery

Be worry-free with a best-in-class comprehensive service

Speedy recovery due to a well-crafted IT disaster recovery plan should be at the
top of your priority list.

If you think “data backup” is synonymous with “disaster recovery” and aren’t sure what “business continuity” means, you’re not alone. Many make the mistake of not knowing the difference and unfortunately end up paying the price when data is lost, a network goes down, or a disaster prevents them from accessing their physical servers.

Backup vs Disaster Recovery

Backups are performed for the single purpose of copying data. Disaster recovery is for the additional purpose of business continuity.

Here are some major differences between backup and disaster recovery:

  • Planning Process – A disaster recovery plan is a set of instructions and solutions designed to recover and protect data in the event of a disaster. Its purpose is to maximize uptime, reduce the chance of data loss, and maintain HIPAA compliance in the event of a disaster or system failure. Backing up data is only the first step in a complete disaster recovery plan.
  • Power of Recovery – In case of hardware failure, a disaster recovery plan allows you to switch to an alternate environment capable of sustaining your practice without disruption. This requires additional resources to bring the data online within minutes.

While it’s great to have a backup, having an IT disaster recovery plan is a critical business need. It’s not okay to take a week or a month to get the data up and running.

Here are the top 5 reasons why the Pact-One Solutions team considers your IT Disaster Recovery Plan our priority:

  1. Planning for the unknown
