Does Your MSP Business Have A Secure Disaster Recovery Plan?

A Time magazine article, in December 2014, highlighted some of the most grotesque and extreme weather conditions and natural disasters that struck the earth in the year 2014. From an earthquake in Chile, a volcano eruption in Iceland to a storm in Buffalo, N.Y., 2014 was indeed an active year.

While these large scale catastrophes have been down this year, for MSP’s this may prove to be a red alert. Are you doing everything you can to protect your data, and that of your clients? Is your data recovery plan up-to-date? As a managed backup services provider, we list down some of the practices for your data recovery:

1. Being Prepared

You can rarely foresee a disaster. So when disaster looms over, you may not have the time to begin preparing then. A disaster recovery plan must be set, and ready to be implemented the minute disaster strikes. Make sure the plan is tested, drilled and fine-tuned before it is actually set into corporate stone.

Your clients may not have much knowledge in this instance. That’s where you come in. Take a look at their business requirements, and customize the recovery plan accordingly.

2. Offsite or Remote Backup is the Way To Go!

One of the best practices of any disaster recovery plan is to not store the data in one place. Have all the data ready for an offsite backup on an automatic or real time basis. If off-site backup is not scheduled to be automatic, develop a periodic manual backup of all on-premise data and virtual machines.

Also, make sure that your team is well briefed and trained in providing assistance post-disaster. After any kind of extreme weather conditions, your clients may seem panicked and impatient. At this point, ensure that your employees are available to manage the restoration in the smoothest way possible. The sooner your recovery time, the more satisfied your client will be.

3. Rest Every Scenario

Each disaster varies from the other, causing different levels of damage. An earthquake could last for a few seconds, and cause mass level damage; a tornado could have a more local impact; a fire could cause permanent damage to the physical data center. Is your data recovery plan factoring in all these scenarios?

4. Testing Your Backup

No matter how fool proof your disaster recovery plan is on paper, if it hasn’t been tested for its effectiveness, you may be putting your clients’ data at risk. Run a full-fledged test, not only on the systems, but on the staff and recovery time as well.

Your clients’ ability to seamlessly manage their business in the time of disaster or data loss depends on the kind of services you offer. Choose the best cloud backup software.
