Trust Our Backup and Disaster Recovery Service
Our backup and recovery services are all about business continuity.
Data loss can range from minor to massive — from a mistakenly deleted file to a fire or flood that destroys your workplace. To safeguard all your data and keep your systems working no matter what happens, the backup and disaster recovery service provides three distinct layers of cloud backup solutions:
Layer One: You benefit from a dedicated NPI appliance that sits next to your data (at your site or in the cloud) and backs it up every hour. The appliance will temporarily replace a failed server to keep you running, and will quickly restore corrupt or lost data.
Layer Two: Our Canopy Backup and Disaster Recovery Service replicates an encrypted version of your data and applications to a geographically separate data center on a different power grid. If you experience a disaster at your cloud or local site or in your region, we will activate this backup on a virtual server and have you back up and running quickly.
Layer Three: All your data is replicated in a third center on the other side of the U.S. — so even if both your geographically disparate locations are disabled, your data is safely backed up.
Our job is always to help mitigate your business’s risks. After getting to know you and your goals, we’ll recommend the most cost-effective backup and disaster recovery solution. Whether you use on-premise or cloud-based servers, we’ll be sure you always have good data backup. This backup will be tested every day, so it will boot up and work if ever it’s needed.
With NPI, you never lose a grip on your valuable data because we offer you the best backup and disaster recovery solutions. If your data goes missing, we will retrieve it quickly and completely.
In our business, infrastructure is critical, so equipment failure is always at the back of our minds. We sleep a lot better knowing that if something bad happens we can recover quickly. NPI has been a great partner in helping up our game with canopy backup and recovery. The techs are responsive and knowledgeable, and, when there is a disruption, they get us up and running quickly with minimal data loss.”Bob Oberlander, CFO, Benson Woodworking Co, Inc. and Unity Building Technologies, a Walpole, New Hampshire design/build firm
What is Business Continuity Planning?
The Business Continuity planning process enumerates and analyzes the systems that drive your profitability, allowing you to calculate the dollar cost of system outages, and the cost/benefit of system redundancy and other improvements to prevent/reduce downtime. Questions typically include:
- What IT services does our organization use (email, phones, database applications, websites, wifi, etc.)?
- How long can we tolerate an outage in each service, and what would be the cost be in client service, lost orders and productivity, and out of pocket expense?
- What internal resources are required to keep each service available?
- What investments will reduce outages to acceptable timeframes?
What should be prioritized for disaster recovery?
This will be determined by your type of business. For example, a manufacturer needs to get their machines back online while a healthcare provider will need access to patient records and scheduling.
Why move backup to the cloud?
Offsite backup ensures that data is protected in case of a catastrophic event in your place of business. Cloud backup allows for restore of lost files and can virtualize your servers to keep you operating even when local servers are not available. Cloud backup that is stored in multiple geographic locations offers extra protection in case of a regional weather event, power outage, or catastrophe.
What does an IT Disaster Recovery Plan include?
Your IT Disaster Recovery Plan is part of your larger plan for managing general disasters such as flood or fire and for IT-specific disasters. Your plan should include:
- Backup and Restore of data in case of ransomware or server failure. The plan will include frequency of backup and allowable downtime for different types of data.
- Backup of cloud data in case of provider failure or outage
- Plans for what devices/computers people will use remotely in case of a site disaster
- Plans for how data can be accessed remotely if required, including temporarily “spinning up” local servers in the cloud
- Recovery process steps and contact information for key personnel, vendors, and clients
