Traditional Backup Versus Business Continuity

Plan better for your business.

Data protection solutions are essential for businesses of all sizes to implement.

There is big importance of business continuity rather than simply backing up. Also downtime is real and it’s costly. How costly exactly? Depending on the size of the organization, the cost per hour of downtime can be astronomical.

So what is business continuity? Simply put, it’s the ability for a business to keep running (at a predefined, acceptable level) after some kind of disruptive incident or event has occurred. So planning has to take place before some sort of disaster occurs and this planning is increasingly important as more and more businesses rely on technology.

What causes downtime? Network outages and human error account for a majority of downtime.. Meanwhile, natural disasters account for only a small percent of downtime. As it turns out, businesses should be more worried about their own employees and less of natural disasters. If you’ve been putting off data protection because your organization is located far from any brutal and/or severe weather, be warned: the bigger threat could be inside not outside.
