Why Disaster Recovery?

Disaster Recovery is often confused with back-up but there is a world of difference. In a nut-shell, back-up protects data (files such as .word .excel .jpeg  etc) whereas the role of Disaster Recovery is to restore not only your files but your whole IT infrastructure.

How long would it take for you to rebuild your entire IT infrastructure? A well-planned Disaster Recovery position could reduce this time from days to hours, saving your business money and preserving credibility in the process. 

System crashes, viruses, theft and hardware failures are happening every day. Are you confident your business could recover quicky from a disaster?

  • Do you have a Disaster Recovery plan as well as data back-up?

  • Is the right data being backed up?

  • Is your data stored off-site securely?

  • Is your data regularly tested and could it be restored successfully?

  • Is your backup full server-image and not just your user files?

Why a Military Grade Data Centre?

The Newbury bunker at Greenham Common was built for the US Armed Forces as a command and control air base. During the Cold War as the main tactical launch site in Europe, it featured full nuclear attack protection.

The construction and security standards are what you might expect of such a purpose- built fortress and feature reinforced concrete walls, steel doors and tempest shielding.

As well as being physically inaccessible, the bunker is patrolled on a 24-hour watch, with CCTV and a series of sophisticated access controls, making your data safe from both man and Mother Nature.

CIS helped us to achieve our business goal through moving to the secure Private Cloud. As an Accountancy firm, we have witnessed a dramatic shift in smarter IT practices that have improved our way of working and allowed us to stay ahead of the competition.

Mark Winks, Managing Director, Bronsens.
