Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR) is one of the most important steps a business can take to protect itself from data loss. Perhaps the greatest and most obvious benefits of BDR are business continuity and increased uptime. Here are four additional benefits to implementing a well-defined Backup and Disaster Recovery plan for your company.
Improved Customer Retention
Clients expect reliable, high-quality service and as the client’s partner you must deliver. Should a disaster strike or equipment fail, your client will likely be unforgiving and will simply pursue another partner. To avoid losing that partnership – and revenue – a well-defined backup and disaster recovery plan is essential. When a client trusts your service and has confidence in your ability to implement BDR immediately if needed, that client relationship becomes solidified. It is less likely that client will shop around for a new partner when they are pleased with your company’s performance.
Reduced Recovery Time
When data is lost or compromised, time is precious. The longer it takes to replace or recover lost data or files, the greater the chance of jeopardizing your client relationship. When backup and disaster recovery solutions are in place a business can quickly bounce back from data loss issues. Reduced recovery time goes a long way in preserving a client’s reputation. The less downtime a client experiences, the better the situation is for all parties involved.
Keeping employees productive is key in any business and having a backup and disaster recovery plan in place ensures productivity does not wane in times of a disaster. The element of reduced recovery time and increased productivity go hand in hand. Employees charged with certain parts of the disaster recovery process understand their roles and can spring into action immediately to mitigate damage and recovery time.
Scalable and Flexible Solutions
Identifying solutions that fit the needs of your business allow you to define exactly what you need in a backup and disaster recovery solution as well as the associated budget. A BDR solution should meet your needs while remaining cost-effective.
