Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan
Dunedin IT can provide both an onsite and offsite backup and recovery system, which would facilitate a robust Disaster Recovery Plan. We can provide a facility that will allow businesses to continue to operate should the business suffer a total disaster such as the destruction of the Office.
How DR works
The virtualised server environment is backed up to external hardware which is located “On Site” within the office (Eg External USB Drive or Tape). These external backup devices are rotated on a daily basis. In addition we would also implement an automated scripted program to copy the backup image to an “Off Site” facility. Should a disaster occur then the server can be quickly reinstated from either the “On Site” or “Off Site” images. We can additionally provide a “Hot Standby Server” which would be made available to the business should the office become inaccessible to staff for whatever reason. This would be an exact copy of the original environment and can be implemented to any “Off Site” Business Continuity Facility.
