As organisations become more dependent upon IT for their day-today operation, the risk to business continuity increases dramatically. Both commercial and public sector IT departments alike require a robust disaster recovery facility to ensure rapid bounceback from serious failure, be it a virus, security breach, hardware or software issue, data corruption or force majeure.
Adapt offers a wide variety of disaster recovery services from cold standby equipment in safe storage to hot, instantly available services maintained by live feeds from primary sources. For virtualised environments, Adapt provides solutions from vendors such as VMware and Veeam in addition to storage replication technologies.
To ensure that your disaster recovery plan remains current, Adapt performs periodic reviews and updates. Our change management process identifies movement in your business requirements and technology environment, working with you to refine and adjust the DR plan accordingly.
Any identified changes to the DR plan will be reviewed during regular service management reviews chaired by your Adapt Service Account Manager. This is the forum at which to review and understand any changes that are required and the impact that these may have on the plan.
Our approach includes the following activities:
Data and systems are split between geographically separate locations and appear as one continuous entity. This results in a seamless operation to the end-user.
By moving many smaller systems onto larger high-availability servers, we can not only reduce costs but also the probability of failure whilst improving performance, security and resilience.
If left untested, standby equipment may be idle for years until it is suddenly called in to service. This carries with it the risk that some aspect of the equipment, or the procedures necessary to bring it in to live service, has become unworkable over time. Adapt conducts regular DR tests to make sure all aspects of your service remain ready for live operation.
