Unfortunately, most small businesses are playing catch up. Disaster recovery is often at the back of the budget queue because the cost of delivering it is substantial. It chews up cash and profitability and too many see it as a premium too far, until of course it’s too late.
The reality is a disaster can put you out of business.
Every organisation is now expected to have a contingency plan in place, and SMBs are increasingly asked to provide evidence of their plans to customers and regulated industry inspectors.
Enable your organisation as ‘Disaster-Ready’ so you’re back in business in less than 60 minutes and at a price point that makes small business sense.
Union’s managed service, Dynamic DR, is an entirely automated service which will recover your business’ IT services inside 60 minutes should a disaster strike. We manage the instant fail-over of your IT services to the Microsoft Azure cloud. The service costs a fraction of trying to build the same level of capability yourself and it provides an auditable safety-net so you can compete even with the big boys.
No business is the same so we create a bespoke dynamic disaster recovery runbook (play for innovation) just for you. Documented as part of a service catalogue aligned to your unique needs your business is armed with a plan demonstrable to customers, auditors, and regulators.
Choose to fail-over to one of our datacentre locations or to the Microsoft Azure cloud. Union’s policies, processes, and technologies apply equally to both, giving you the flexibility to make the choice of platform model that meets you business profile.
We test invocation every year, issuing a certificate you can publish to third parties. So if the worst happens, and you invoke disaster recovery, our team is ready 24×7. We’ll manage the fail-over and fail-back processes plus we’ll continue to operate your infrastructure services all the time they’re running in Azure.
Centralised dashboard monitoring alerts our operations centre to any incidents that compromise service availability. Predetermined procedures then kick in to orchestrate processes for fail-over in a fully automated manner that can be invoked manually or automatically. At the press of a button we can recover your entire IT service suite within 60 minutes.
