The unexpected is called the unexpected for a reason.

However, your backup and disaster recovery plan shouldn’t be unexpected.

Australia has sadly seen its fair share of natural disasters over the last couple of years, whether that be bushfires or floods. However, it’s been a timely reminder for businesses to revisit their business continuity strategy, specifically around disaster recovery.

Build and deploy your IT disaster recovery plan

Considerations for your backup and disaster recovery plan should start with:

Identify business critical functions

Define how and when these functions need to be recovered so the business can continue to operate

Know your risks

Identify the disasters (natural and cyber) that your business might face.

Plan now for what you will do

Work with your staff and external providers to make an action plan. Be clear in roles, responsibilities and expectations.

Get your business ready

Put the plan into practice regularly. It’s no good when it’s only on paper.

Whilst we’re focussed on the technological side of your business, these guidelines operate across the business.

Motivating factors for change

Changing disaster recovery providers and infrastructure can be daunting. Even more so when legacy systems are involved. Global Storage picks up the management overhead of your disaster recovery strategy, including your cloud backup and recovery.

Baker’s Delight is a global business with over 700 retail outlets. It’s imperative that our systems are always online and protected from outage events such as ransomware attacks or other environmental impacts. Global Storage and its team of highly experienced engineers have saved us from many events over the years by recovering all or a subset of our systems within the SLAs

Industry trends show that the driving business factors for changing backup and recovery solution providers are:

  • Improved recovery point objective (RPO)/recovery time objective (RTO) SLAs
  • Reduction in costs
  • Improve reliability (success rates) of backups

Future trends

51% of all disaster recovery will be cloud based by 2023

81% of backup will be cloud based in the next two years
