The future of your SMB won’t make any sense without reliable and efficient business continuity and data backup services. Most people equate business continuity to data recovery. But the former goes beyond getting your systems up and running after a disaster. You could retrieve your data and applications from the cloud. But it would be meaningless if your teams can reach clients after a devastating fire, flood, or storm.
In 2020, after COVID-19, Internet and power-related outages were the largest reasons organizations were forced to put their business continuity strategies into action. Many weren’t prepared…
To understand what continuity means for your business, you need to have a look at the grim reality and statistics of IT downtime. According to Gartner, a single minute of downtime would cost $5,600, translating to a massive $336,000 per hour.
Since businesses operate differently, these figures may vary widely. Some organizations may lose as much as $140,000 per hour of downtime. While others may incur a whopping $540,000 for the same period. For some, it’s a matter of life and death, as the costs may soar beyond $5 million.
The bottom line is that your business may never recover at all if downtime extends to over one day. You would lose your customers to your competitors, and it would be difficult to regain them when you finally recover. This is why many businesses collapse within 2 years after a major disaster. But EB Solution is here to take care of your business continuity needs by ensuring reliable and easy data backup.
The threat of downtime is always real. It is why you need a reliable IT service company to monitor your systems round the clock, identify potential issues and fix them before they bring your business operations to a screeching halt. Some may be avoidable, some are beyond human interventions.
