Who can you call in a crisis?
Creating and maintaining a disaster recovery plan are necessary items for any business. Companies often overlook the “crisis” part of a crisis—potential lack of resources, added pressure, possible media exposure—that could prevent or delay successful recovery. Having an incident command center or emergency management coordinators can help alleviate overhead. These roles can help navigate stressful situations and allow IT workers to focus on recovery tasks.
Similarly, employing a disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) provider gives you access to Veeam experts in a crisis. At Global Data Vault, we have three Veeam Certified Engineers (VMCE), two Veeam Certified Architects (VMCA), with one being a Veeam Vanguard. During a disaster, our staff of specialists becomes an extension of your IT team, bringing your protected workloads up in our cloud environment.
Another more likely type of crisis could be a ransomware takeover or even basic viruses that cause data access issues or work stoppages. With a DRaaS provider, you have a knowledgeable and Veeam-expert team available to help recover the data you need quickly. Even if your cloud backups are compromised, Global Data Vault’s Enhanced Data Protection provides a “gapped” solution that is unreachable by malware which means you’re back in business fast.
