Our Business Continuity and Recovery Solutions Have You Covered
Your data is important to your business. How are you protecting it?
Files do get lost; hardware fails; backups get corrupted. Atlas through its partnership with Datto has solutions to manage these risks. Datto’s backup appliances can backup any amount of data locally—and as often as every 5 minutes.
It also copies these backups to the cloud in case your premises are unavailable to you through flood, civil action, pandemic, fire, or theft. And your data can be “spun up” on a “virtual server” in case so your team can keep working even while replacement computers are on order.
Because it’s hard to predict the future or when a business interruption will happen, we’ve prepared the following calculator to help you understand the important of your data to your business—or perhaps more importantly, the cost of not having that data in the event of a disaster.

How much data do you have on critical business systems?
?What is the timeframe between each of your backups? E.g. every hour, once a day, once a week.
How often do you back up this data?
?From when disaster strikes, how long does it for your end user to notify you, for you to assess the situation, access your backups, and start the recovery process? Think of this a your response time.
On average, how long does it take you to notify your IT Service Provider that there is an issue and for them to start trouble shooting the downtime incident?
?Storing your data locally is designed for fast data transfers, however you are at risk if there is a disaster in the office such as fire, floods or theft.

Where do you currently store your backups?
?Speed of cloud recovery comes down to the amount of data you are trying to recover and your download speed. Devices with slower connections will take longer to recover.
