Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery

Quest proactively protects your system & data.
Trust Quest to minimize downtime if disaster strikes.

ISO 9001:2015, ISO 14001:2015

Quest’s Data protection solutions are essential for businesses of all sizes to implement, regardless of size, industry and geographic location. Business continuity is equally important to consider as it ensures your organization is able to get back up and running in a timely matter when disaster strikes. For example, if your server malfunctions, you wouldn’t be able to quickly get back to work if you only had file-level backup. Your server would need to be replaced, software and data re-installed, and the whole system would need to be configured with your specific settings and preferences. This process could take days. Can your business afford to lose that time and data?

When talking about business continuity, we think in terms of Recovery Time Objective (RTO), and Recovery Point Objective (RPO).

    RTO: The Recovery Time Objective is the duration of time within which a business must be restored after a disruption to avoid unacceptable consequences.
    RPO: The Recovery Point Objective is the maximum tolerable period of time in which data might be lost due to a disaster.

By calculating your desired RTO, you have determined the maximum time that you can be without your data before your business is at risk. Alternatively, by specifying the RPO, you know how often you need to perform backups. You may have an RTO of a day, and an RPO of an hour depending on what your business requirements.

The Truth About Data Disasters

They can strike any business at any time and the downtime they cause is truly catastrophic, many of which never recover.
The strength to avert disasters and effectively handle the ones that occur starts with knowledge.

what could happen

What could happen?

Disasters of all kinds cause downtime that is harmful to a business. Disaster planning must encompass disasters of all types and sizes: ransomware, cyber-attacks, power or IT system failure, fires, floods, fraud, human error, acts of terror, and other unthinkable scenarios. While the type of disaster varies, the impact is typical: data and operational downtime that is truly disastrous. The devastating effect of downtime caused by disaster include irreparable damage to data, reputation, customer relationships, income, and business vitality.

The best offense is a good defense. Protect your business by understanding your vulnerabilities, safeguarding against the risks, and preparing for the worst possible business disruption with a plan for business continuity and disaster recovery that will shield your data, protect your business, and keep your systems available and reliable no matter what happens.

Downtime is Common

90% of companies experience some form of downtime, which may result in loss of data, security, productivity, and revenue.

(Down) Time is Money

An hour of downtime costs $8,000 for a small company, $74,000 for a medium company, and $700,000 for a large enterprise.

Recovery is Painful

The average time it takes a business to recover from disaster is 18.5 hours, but 43% of companies never totally recover from the incident.

what to look for

What to Look for in a Business Continuity Solution

Here are some key things to look for when seeking a business continuity solution:

    Hybrid cloud backup - A hybrid approach fixes the vulnerabilities that a cloud-only or local-only possess.
    Superior RTO and RPO - Think in terms of business continuity rather than a simple backup. Calculate how much downtime your business can endure and still survive.
    Image-based backup - Make sure that the backup solution takes images of all data and systems rather than simply copying the files.
