Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR)

Do you have a clear procedure in place to back up your files and system? Protect your productivity, data, and resources with Teltek's thorough Backup and Disaster Recovery plan.

Computer hardware inevitably fails, and cyber attacks are growing in frequency and sophistication (including malware and ransomware). Human error and natural disasters put you at risk as well.

If you’ve never encountered an issue, it can be too easy to assume that you’re already safe, or that if a problem hasn’t occurred yet it likely never will. Unfortunately, we know that it’s not a matter of if you’ll experience compromised data and systems, but when.

Restore your peace of mind with the right backup and disaster recovery solutions.

The threats against your data are growing on a near daily basis, leaving 55% of today’s small-to-medium-sized businesses feeling vulnerable. Thankfully, the technology and tools designed to protect you are constantly advancing as well.

As a long-standing technology solutions integrator, we’ve served our clients through the technological evolution that has taken place since we opened our doors in 1996. Our best advice is to be fully aware of the hazards, and put a clear plan in place to protect you from avoidable loss.

Protect against:

  • Lost time and productivity

    What Is backup and disaster recovery, and how does it work?

    In basic terms, backup and disaster recovery encompasses the tools, team, and procedures you have in place for restoring lost or damaged files and systems.

    “Backup” refers to copying and storing individual files, and “disaster recovery” refers to the comprehensive plan you have in place to recover data and resume operations in the event of an emergency.

    During your daily operations these files will of course always be changing, so the specific plan you have in place will dictate how often these duplicate files need to be created and stored. The ultimate goal is to ensure that if a file is lost, or a whole system goes down, you have a contingency plan in place.

    As a simple example, have you heard of the 3-2-1 rule? You should have at least 3 copies of your data, saved across 2 forms of media, and 1 backup offsite. The concept is a good one, and battle-tested, but you still need to be careful that the implementation is correct. For example, saving 2 different copies of your data is good, but saving both copies in the same system? That defeats the purpose, as both copies will be lost if your system goes down.

    What sets Teltek’s disaster recovery services apart?

    It’s all about being proactive rather than reactive, implementing a plan that reduces your downtime to zero, or as close to zero as possible, without losing your critical data. After all, business continuity is essential.

    1. The Latest Tools and Technology

    Backup procedures used to take days to complete, if they restored at all, and the data recovery points (latest version of your saved data) were often woefully outdated. In other words, you salvaged whatever you could, but by the time you got it back the information was already old. We use cutting-edge technology that delivers the best, most reliable backup possible. And those recovery points? We can keep them current, minimizing loss and ensuring that you have the most recent, useful versions at your disposal.

    2. Hybrid Recovery Options

    Why limit yourself to one form of protection? We use a hybrid approach that involves both an on-site backup device and a simultaneous cloud-based backup. The onsite device can act as a failover server if your primary server goes offline, providing you a lifeline to your data. If the disaster is catastrophic and you can’t recover your data locally, you can still virtualize and recover from your cloud-based backup.

    3. Instant Virtualization To Get Your Business Back Online

    Are your operations compromised, maybe by a virus or natural disaster? Using the cloud, we can help you virtualize your business, spinning up a recovery point in the cloud almost instantly. This lets you continue to run your organization while the rest of your backup and disaster recovery plan is implemented.

    4. Real Time Monitoring and Testing

    We monitor our customer’s data backups in real time and run routine tests to validate proper functionality.

    Image Level Vs. File Level Backup

    File level backup refers to saving individual copies of your files, while image level refers to saving an “image” of your entire system and associated data.

    Saving files is well and good, but when you need to reconstruct an entire system, working file-by-file is incredibly labor-intensive.

    File level backup would be like rebuilding a city brick by brick, while image level backup is like having a duplicate city on reserve.

    At Teltek, we use image level backup. It requires more storage space, but the benefits are invaluable, especially when you need to access and restore compromised systems as quickly as possible. As an additional benefit, image level backups can also be used to pinpoint specific files you need to restore, making them extremely effective for both broad and highly-targeted needs.

    Backup and disaster recovery is essential to your cybersecurity strategy

    As we mentioned above, ransomware is one of the largest threats to your overall data integrity.

    A single mistake or careless download by an employee can spell disaster. Security measures and training/awareness are certainly on the front lines of protection, but so is an effective backup and disaster recovery plan.

    With image level backup, you can simply revert to an earlier “snapshot” (if you will) of your system, taken prior to the virus, ransomware, or malware infiltration. This way you only sacrifice a small amount of data, as opposed to potentially catastrophic losses to your finances, productivity, and data.
