Your data is everything and business need to consider data loss seriously. Nowadays we rely heavily on knowing that our data is secure, private and safe.
But how can you assure this with your company’s data? Do you have an established plan for your business?
Image you lost your phone or laptop. Scary right? Now imagine that you haven’t backed up that data – catastrophic right? Now imagine your phone or laptop is your business data, and it’s gone, vanished, done. Is there a word that’s more impactful than catastrophic? Because that’s the effect on a business without backups and a recovery plan. There would be no business.
A business disaster recovery plan
A Business Disaster Recovery Plan is implemented in preparation of a serious issue such as a server going down, or a disaster such as a hurricane, flood or fire.
There are various ways to store your own backups. It could be via a hosted cloud server, devices such as an external drive, a local server and more.
Or you could talk to us and set up a serious backup and recovery plan that’s 100% guaranteed.
Benefits of a disaster recovery plan
There are many benefits, both tangible and intangible, to having a disaster recovery plan. In the event of an unexpected disturbance to your business, disaster recovery services will be able to get you back on track by making sure you’re prepared rather than madly scrambling later on.
Rapid Replication and Copying of Information, Software, and Applications
Data replication involves making copies of all of your information in real time as your information is generated. This is especially useful because it allows you to very quickly reproduce your most important information, software, and applications.
Reliable Recovery of Information
Having a disaster recovery plan means that you will have a reliable method that you can count on to recover your most important information.
When your systems fail, a client who is pressed for time will likely go next door to your direct competition. The longer it takes for you to resume normal operations, the greater the incentive becomes for clients to move away from your business.
Long-Term Cost Savings
If you have a comprehensive overview of your systems, you’re going to readily be able to view areas where you can add upgrades that replace any current costly inefficiencies. This could involve moving your data to a cloud-based system or other upgrades that will save your business money in the long-term.
Protected Business Reputation
What will current or prospective clients think if they experience a disruption in service? Referrals and word-of-mouth need to remain glowing, or else there will be a severe cost paid with lost business.
Non-Disruptive System Testing
A disaster recovery plan allows you to run scenarios that show you what would happen in the event of a problem without disrupting your business. Constantly being able to test your system will allow you to build greater confidence with clients, as you can demonstrate your reliability.
Minimal System Downtime during Replication
Downtime will always affect your organization by reducing employee focus, and perhaps more importantly, motivation. No matter what industry you work in, when sensitive data is inaccessible or lost, it creates havoc for everyone involved and can cause inactivity.
Compliance with Industry Regulations
If you have clients in the medical, financial, or legal verticals, then they are most likely governed by stringent industry regulations and other legal requirements. HIPAA, SOX, and GLBA are just some of the legal requirements that stipulate how businesses need to be able to provide access to sensitive digital information at all times. Being able to back up all of their data in a secure way inspires greater confidence.

Peace of Mind!
There’s a special frame of mind that comes with knowing your data is protected, safe, and can be recovered in the event of a disaster. Backing your data up by using disaster recovery services does more than secure your information—it gives you peace of mind on a daily basis.
Who needs a disaster recovery plan?
The simple answer – every business should have a VMware disaster recovery plan. Try to imagine dealing with the loss of your businesses information, perhaps accumulated over years of work. How would you cope? How long would it take to recover what your business needs to become functional? For most companies, the downtime alone in a disaster situation would be catastrophic.

Veeam Backup & Replication for Windows Server with Hyper-V
Veeam helps you maximize your cloud opportunity and becomes your entire virtualized platform.
Webhosting.net uses Veeam as its backup solution for VMware and Hyper-V backup, recovery and replication. It is fast, flexible, and a reliable recovery method of client hosted applications and data.
Backing up Microsoft Hyper-V environments
Veeam Backup & Replication produces image-level backups of VMs. It treats VMs as objects, not as a set of files. When you back up VMs, Veeam Backup & Replication copies a VM image as a whole, at a block level. Image-level backups can be used for different types of restore, including Instant VM Recovery, entire VM restore, VM file recovery, file-level recovery and so on.
The backup technology is typically used for VMs with lower RTOs. When the primary VM fails, you need some time to restore VM data from a compressed and deduplicated backup file.
Veeam provides fast and reliable backup for vSphere and Hyper-V virtual environments —
all without the use of agents.

The 3-2-1 Rule
The 3-2-1 rule suggests that you should keep three copies of your data, store it on two types of media and ensure that one copy is off site. However, backing up off site can be problematic due to restricted bandwidth, surging data volumes and insufficient resources necessary to build or manage a true offsite backup repository.
With Veeam Cloud Connect, you can adhere to the 3-2-1 rule without bleeding money and resources into a second site or increasing bandwidth—simply utilize cloud backup repository services from Webhosting.net and leverage Veeam’s Built-in WAN Acceleration technology and so much more.
