How quickly could your business bounce back from a disaster?

Disaster strikes, and it’s always when you least expect it.

Very few businesses think about disaster recovery. The threat of flood, fire or lightning strike is perceived as so low few businesses spend time and resource planning against these once-in-a-lifetime occurrences. But when it does happen, it is catastrophic. It is no coincidence that 80% of businesses affected by a major incident either never re-open or close down within 18 months of the incident occurring.

Sometimes it takes less than a fire or flood to bring down a business. Ask yourself, how long could your business survive without power or broadband? One or two days? How about a week?

Few businesses in our connected world could survive without more than a few hours without access to their computers. Customers cannot be serviced, projects grind to a halt, as staff struggle to find alternative ways to keep the company moving. And all this time your customers are left hanging. Now that is a disaster.

And what about theft? If you have ever suffered a break-in you know just how disastrous it is. Ripping your company server from its premises is almost like pulling the heart from your company’s knowledge base; with it goes all your project data, all your customers’ details, everything that helps your business do business.

Worknet’s Remote-Desk removes that risk by operating your server away from your business in a secure and protected data centre that is unaffected by what happens or could happen at your office.

What Remote-Desk gives your business is resilience.

Resilience is the ability to recover from change or misfortune without any adverse effects. When you run your own server, your resilience is low. If your server is stolen, destroyed or damaged your ability to pick up and get back to business is severely curtailed.

Sure, you can back up your data and then restore it; but, do you know how long it would take to buy, configure and set up a new server to restore your data to?

When Worknet runs your server off-site such problems never affect your business.

Here’s why Remote-Desk is safer for your business. Instead of your server sitting in your office, Worknet sets up your server exactly how you want it in a data centre in the UK.

Worknet uses Microsoft Azure, which offers the greatest resilience possible. It has the highest level of security, greater than most offices.

Keeping a server on-site is a risk. Fire, theft, flooding and power issues can all bring your business to a halt. There is a simple, easy solution. It’s a solution that lifts all the worry and hassle of running your business IT, while maintaining all the functionality you need. You don’t need a server cluttering up your office and you don’t need a dedicated person on site in case something goes wrong.

Worknet’s Remote-Desk does more than give your business greater protection against disasters. It simply takes the problem out of your hands. That leaves you to get on and run your business.
