A disaster may strike at any time and damage your company’s reputation—or worse. And without a solid, up-to-date plan in place, your business may never recover.
Every hour of lost access to data and critical systems is costly and detrimental. Studies have shown that as few as eight hours of downtime can cost your business upwards of $500k. The cost of this kickstart is a drop in the bucket. Consider it an investment that will save you tenfold when disaster strikes.
According to one study, 93% of companies that lost their data center for ten or more days due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year. And 60% of companies that lost their data shut down within six months.
81% of companies run just one DR drill a year (or fewer). Lack of testing and outdated test plans make Recovery Time and Point Objectives (RTO & RPO) a big challenge.
Keep your plan updated with your environment and frequently test to stay safe.
60% of organizations fail to meet their RTO and RPOs. If your people can’t execute and your processes aren’t clear, even the latest DR technology won’t help you.
Train and fully prepare your team with our proven, well-defined practices.
Human error is the biggest reason Recovery Time and Recovery Point Objectives aren’t met. In a stressful disaster, manual plans only increase the likelihood of mistakes.
Minimize the risk of human error through automation.
In just three short weeks, our Disaster Recovery Strategy Kickstart takes a deep dive into your organizations’ Disaster Recovery plan and provides a strategy that enables you to streamline, automate, and prepare your team so they’re ready when the next disaster strikes.
Our proven four-step approach yields a successful migration, typically over a two-week period:
Review your current landscape to identify any risk exposures that leave you vulnerable in a disaster.
Our holistic evaluation assesses the maturity of your existing disaster recovery plan. Equip yourself with a DR report card to better understand the gaps (among nine key industry-standard categories) that can leave you defenseless. Walk away with a comprehensive recommendation list that details exactly what’s needed to strengthen your plan across the board.
Your DR Report Card informs our Prioritization Roadmap that lays out all the near-term and long-term tasks necessary to fortify your disaster recovery plan in each key area.
Design breakout sessions, define your desired future state, establish disaster scenarios, develop requirements, run book process, and create DR plan documentation.
Tabletop exercises, including Mock DR and application-recovery drills, ensure your team is fully familiarized with the best course of action to take in a disaster. Identifies gaps in your existing Disaster Recovery plan and provides updates as needed to ensure success in a real-life scenario.
At the conclusion of the three-week kickstart, you’ll hit the ground running with an executive readout that includes a project timeline and next steps to identify and prepare your team for the ideal course of action at each phase.
