Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery

Your business is what matters – to you and to GMI.  Nothing is more critical than understanding how you recover your systems and data in the event of a catastrophe.  GMI keeps this in mind whenever we meet with customers.  For that reason, we always start with a free assessment of your environment.

Truth be told, it’s easy for people to create a lot of fear around disaster recovery and business continuity.  And, there are a lot of products on the market. Most businesses aren’t in a position to deploy every single type of backup and need to prioritize.

 

Continuum of Solutions Based on Recovery Time

 

There is a broad range of business continuity and disaster recovery solutions.  The basics start with local and offsite data copies.  Integrated appliance solutions, backup or archive to the cloud, hot disaster recovery sites and bare metal restoration hosted in the cloud are all available options.

GMI will work with you and your team to inventory your starting point and outline your goals.  We feel it’s important to plan for the common disasters (such as local power outage) and to define a practice plan to test recovery efforts.  Once the basics are covered, an evaluation of risk will drive the appropriate additional layers of protection needed for each business.

For many, the right solution can be a phased approach, focusing on most critical applications or common events such as local power loss.  Based on the assessment, GMI will outline several options to help with your selection. Please give us a call at 425-644-2233 to get the conversation started.
