Backing up data is only one piece of the business continuity puzzle. Data that takes weeks to recover or that returns corrupted or without structure can be almost as devastating as total loss. Fast, thorough recovery capability is essential to staying on top of your game, no matter what life throws at you.
For more than 80% of businesses experiencing a major disaster this year, it will come in the form of technology mishaps. Even a simple power loss or minor theft can spell major problems for an unprepared small business. The cost of a single small event, such as the data loss associated with the theft of a company laptop, amounts on average to $50,000. By some estimates, 50% of small businesses that experience unexpected hardware failure will be out of business within one year.
Yet according to a global study by Regus in 2012, the percentage of companies with no form of disaster recovery plan remains around 43%–and the number among SMBs is higher.
Underlying this startling statistic is the reality that most small businesses simply don’t feel they have the time to devote to something as dauntingly complex as Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity. Traditionally, DR/BC has been the realm of big business, a complicated and expensive multi-step process involving consultants and lots of testing.
