Backups are one of the most important elements of your IT system, however they’re often overlooked and it isn’t until disaster strikes that you realise how important they are.

A business that fails to maintain a copy of its data is asking for trouble as it’s extremely easy to lose data and all but impossible to rebuild it if proper backups haven’t been made.  At David Allen IT Solutions we will implement a backup strategy that provides maximum protection for your business’ valuable data.

Onsite backups

Onsite backup, recovery and retention solutions can be designed to deal with quick restores – for example data that is deleted, corrupted or overwritten.  These are usually more suitable than an offsite critical backup procedure.  We will review the many options available for this kind of data protection and advise you on the best solutions for your business when it comes to your backups, including recovering deleted emails, maintaining multiple versions of your documents to prevent unwanted edits and having fast file recovery if a document is deleted.

Offsite backups

How do you protect your business from a full-scale data loss?  Do you take data out of your office and if you do, how do you protect it?

We have a wealth of knowledge across a wide variety of technologies including backup software, cloud solutions and storage and recovery.  From implementing the very best backup procedure for your business, securing data when it leaves your business, and monitoring the backup and restore process, we will provide you with peace of mind that your data is safe.  Find out more about our secure data centre here.

Disaster recovery

We all hope that nothing ever goes wrong with our IT systems but if it does, whether it is a significant hardware failure, natural disaster or malicious software, it is important to have a disaster recovery plan in place to get your business back up and running as soon as possible.

We will help your business prepare a thorough and robust disaster recovery plan to minimise disruption and loss if the worst was to happen.

Depending on your business needs, we can also implement systems which protect your business by running all your servers, PCs and software in a remote data centre so that your staff can continue working from the nearest location with an internet connection until the disaster onsite is fixed.  This solution will minimise downtime and safeguard productivity.  You can learn more about our purpose built, secure data centre that provides cloud services to businesses here.
