Before reading any farther, please close your eyes and take a few minutes to truly think of what would happen if you lost your network infrastructure. Whether you’re a small, medium, or large business, whether you’re in healthcare, accounting, government, education, manufacturing, or service, what would happen if you couldn’t access your data or your email? What happens if your entire organization couldn’t access their data or email? What if it’s payroll day and you can’t pay your employees. What happens if you’re offline for 48 hours?
70% of businesses that experience a major data loss are out of business within one year.
Disaster recovery and business continuity plans are often developed together, as they’re plans for ensuring continued business operations in the event of a disaster (business continuity), and fully recovering from the disaster (disaster recovery). Both are administrative safeguards, put in place to protect the availability of your IT systems and data.
Precision Business Solutions takes safeguarding your data and IT systems very seriously, and provides a range of disaster recovery and business continuity services to fit your business requirements. And please remember, no backup plan is complete until it has been tested. Please click the icon to the right for an example of the Backup and Disaster Recovery Report we provide our Clients.

“I thought we were prepared, until our server crashed and we were down for a solid week. Our business is dependent upon the ability to access our file server and related client data. With a staff of employees and the inability to access our file server for a complete week this could have had a much greater affect to our business had this happened to us in tax season.
After speaking to Precision Business Solutions, we switched to their IT Management system, including their Backup & Disaster Recovery solution. Our server is now securely backed up to their data center. More importantly, I was provided a Disaster Recovery Certificate, documenting the procedure for restoring our server from backup and the estimated time of recovery (under three hours), which included testing our software applications. I can now rest assured that our Client data is secure and protected, and if we ever have a sever incident at our office, Precision Business Solutions can have us back up and running the same day.”

“We rely on Precision Business Solutions Backup and Disaster Recovery solution to ensure our data is protected. Their solution is different than traditional backup solutions, as they make an identical copy of our entire server infrastructure in their data center. Not only is our data backed up and offsite, but in the event of a disaster we can restore an entire server and be back online with minimal downtime.
I learned of this first hand when our Exchange and Terminal servers went down due to a failed processor. PrecisionBS had me back up and running on a backup server in a few hours. That’s vital to our business, especially during tax season.”
