Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Strategy and Vision

A common theme shared by all of our clients is a challenge and concern to keep their business and IT environment running should there be an event that could impact their services. The possibility of power outages, network failure, or server failure is all problems that face our customers. Many of our clients have built some level of DR/BC with Redundant Internet, or Backup in the cloud, but it is rarely used and often falls out of favor, as these services are not always utilized. The use of newer Cloud services such as Virtualization and Mobility along with redundant network connectivity clients are able to act proactively in protecting themselves from an outage.

Fastblue forms a customized BC/DR solution with clients, working closely with strategic partners to help create powerful solution.How Fastblue defines Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery:

  • Disaster Recovery: Tools, and services put into effect to ensure key business components that become unavailable can be restored in as little time as possible and done in a manner that prevents data/information losses while restoring services in as little downtime as possible.
  • Business Continuity: Creating, and executing a plan that involves all aspects of the company, ensuring that the organization continues to run at almost full capacity with almost no interruption. The goal of BC is to form a sustainable plan for the systems, infrastructure, and people that form your company.

The prevalence of the cloud has increased our customer’s agility in forming DR/BC strategies. Through reduced Internet bandwidth costs, and reduced cloud backup/storage, recovery, virtualization costs our customers from the SMB to the Enterprise all have access to cutting edge technology. The emergence of services such as cloud backup, and cloud storage have increased the continuity of our clients with off-site data that is automatically replicated in the cloud.

Fastblue forms a customized BC/DR solution with our clients, working closely with strategic partners to help create our solution. We believe in an evolving solution set that enables organizations to reach near zero RFO and RTO for their business services. In representing partners such as Savvis/CenturyLink, RapidScale, Navisite and more we are able to leverage cutting edge technologies to build our clients a DR/BC solution built around them. This is achieved through services such as Desktop as a service, preventing downtime in the event of hardware failure. As more services are off-loaded to the cloud we will need to ensure connectivity to the cloud.

Regardless of your current business space, we have the advice and partnerships needed to form a powerful BC/DR plan.
