The importance of Disaster Recovery has been long recognized.

Our expertise with hard drives, removable memory cards, tapes or Exchange Server Backup & Replication issues is well known in the industry.
What Is Disaster Recovery?
Disaster Recovery involves a series of actions or procedures that minimizes the adverse effects of major unplanned outages (also known as downtime). Disasters can result from events such as:
- Attacks by hackers
- Computer Viruses
- Power Failures
- Natural Disasters
- System Administration Errors
With the rise in information technology and the reliance on
business-critical information, the importance of protecting
irreplaceable data has become a more visible business
priority in recent years. This is especially evident in
information technology, with most companies relying on
their computer systems as critical infrastructure in their
business. As a result, most companies are aware that they
need to backup their digital information to limit data loss
and to aid
Most large companies spend between 2%
and 4% of their IT budget on disaster recovery planning;
this is intended to avoid larger losses. Of companies that
had a major loss of computerized data, 43% never reopen, 51%
close within two years, and only 6% will survive long-term.
The current data protection market is characterized by:
Rapidly changing customer needs that are driven by
data growth, regulatory issues and the growing
importance to access data quickly by retaining it
An ever-shrinking time frame for backing up data,
which is burdening conventional tape
backup technologies and leading to an increase in
disk-based backup, data mirroring and high-availability
As the disaster recovery market continues to undergo
significant structural changes, the shift presents
opportunities for companies that specialize in
business continuity planning and
offsite data protection such as our company 4Service
The concept of
business continuity (Disaster Recovery Strategy) involves insuring that an organization's critical business processes, including its IT infrastructure, can be maintained in the event of a disaster.
