Data Backup and Recovery
Not all backup is created equally… What is your tolerance for down time?
With normal backups a common disaster recovery scenario may look like this:
- Day 1: Identify problem such as bad hardware. In this example we will use a failed hard drive array card. Order new part for server over night.
- Day 2: 24 hours later, part arrives, and is installed by technician. Upon installation, the RAID array is out of sync and a complete restore from backup must be performed. Restore begins on day two but will take 8-12 hours to recover all data to last recovery point.
- Day 3: Server is recovered, any remaining debugging from the restore is performed.
For many businesses, being completely down during a disaster recovery operation for 3 business days is not an option. Clients don’t get invoiced, the company does not get paid, service and products cannot be delivered, and the IT Bills keep stacking higher and higher for every minute that goes along.
Another place where On Call differs from the rest of the IT Industry is with our enterprise grade Business Continuity Solutions for smaller organizations. Our solutions allow your servers and key computers to be virtualized every hour and stored on a completely separate device. This device when needed can actually function as a stand in server for as long as you may need until your current server is repaired. Then, with a push of a button after hours, your virtualized server is then restored to your normal server hardware. All at a price small businesses and non-profits can easily afford.
Backing up your critical business data is essential to the health and well being of your organization or business. Data loss is almost the only business problem money can’t solve. When it’s lost because of an unanticipated disaster or even worse, it is stolen, you need to make sure you can recover that data so your business can continue to thrive and grow without losing clients and productivity.

In addition to regular backup services On Call also offers image based backup to the cloud as well as image based on site backup. What is image based backup? Image based backup is where the entire hard drive state including the operating system, data, files, security settings, program settings, system state, and more are backed up as an image file that can easily be restored to different hardware. Why is this important? Because just having your data won’t get you back up and going quickly. You will still have to get new hardware, install the operating system, install all of your programs, and re-do all of your program settings if all you have is the data backed up! Not all data backup is created equal. If it has been a while since your last backup test we would like to invite you to give us a call and take advantage of our free backup-checkup.
