Database Backup/Restore & Disaster Recovery

An audit of system operations is used to identify potential problems, produce a course of action, and perform work to implement database backup, data security and recovery strategies that fit into your business plan.

Many agree that the best solution for avoiding downtime and data loss in a production environment is to implement a preventive maintenance strategy before problems occur. Our engineers are available to assist you with IBM Db2 LUW, IBM Informix, Microsoft SQL Server, Oracle, MySQL, MongoDB, and PostgreSQL .

Database Backup Overview

Many organizations do not focus on their backup and recovery processes and technology until it’s too late. The result? Greater cost, diminished productivity, and ultimately, loss of end-user and customer confidence.

While many organizations have backup and recovery policies in place, often times those programs have not been verified recently. Increased computing complexity and constant changes in the business and IT environment lead to program and technology disparities and performance gaps. Locating expert backup and recovery resources internally can be difficult at best.

What is your business’s reputation worth? How do you notify a customer that you’ve lost their order or record? What do you do if you lose your contact information for all your clients, suppliers or partners? If you can’t provide your service and run your business during a disaster, can your competitors? How much will it cost to win back your customers from your competitors after you do recover? How are you going explain your downtime to your investors, your associates, the media or your management?

Knowing and understanding this cost will give you an advantage in building a cost-effective solution for your business based on your real business needs. It is important that once you create a plan and put it into practice, you follow your plan.
