Secure Your Data with Disaster Recovery Center

Key Points:

  • Data is vital for any company. A Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) is important to keep data secured
  • A number of things need to be observed to develop DRC. Other than hardware and software, location is equally important.
  • Having a DRC enables a company to keep the business running even during catastrophic events.

Information technology today is a part of every aspect in a business. Not only it is indispensable for a company’s administration process, it is also a vital tool to acquire new customers. Given this deep dependency towards information technology, a company’s IT team is demanded to ensure that a data center is up and running continuously without disruption.

Nevertheless, data center comprises a set of electronic devices that are not void of risk failure. To mitigate this risk, a Disaster Recovery Center (DRC) is essential to have; if failure occurs, DRC’s system automatically takes over and resumes a company’s business activities.

There are at least four reasons why DRC is necessary:

  1. Machine and hardware failure
    A company may have invested significantly in high-end machines and hardware, yet DRC remains important. These elements combined will ensure that the company will have zero experience with service failuredue to hardware dysfunction.
  2. Human Error
    It is only wise for any company to prevent human error by having a DRC. This enables the company to create back-up data and restore those data should error occurs.
  3. Unpredictable Nature's Behaviour
    Natural disasters are unavoidable and difficult to predict. Placing a DRC in several relatively safe locations is important.
  4. 24/7/365 Services
    DRC ensures that a company is able to deliver service excellence. Fast services is what the customers expect today, which a company is able to fulfill by having an infrastructure that is accessible anytime.

Building a DRC, however, requires a sound strategy, as there are many factors in play.

DRC needs to cover IT system, application, and data as well as network, servers, desktops, laptops, mobile data devices, and connectivity. In short, an information technology system must entail hardware, software, data, and connectivity; a system will not be working without any of the component.

Looking futher into this, we can find the following factors needed to build a DRC:

  1. Computer-appropriate environment (an area that is safe, equipped with temperature control feature, AC, power supply back-up, and others)
  2. Hardware (network, server, desktop computers and laptops, wireless devices, and peripheral equipment)
  3. Connectivity with service providers (fiber, cable, or wireless network, others)
  4. Software (electronic data exchange, e-mail, company resource management, productivity software, etc.)
  5. Data and restoration
