How Does Working With A Managed Cloud Hosting Provider Make Business Continuity Planning Easier?
2015-01-15 by  Eric Naiburg


Technology is driving revenue and innovation, as your users expect your services to be available constantly. When your business is not technology-centered, finding and funding in-house resources for designing, managing, and supporting infrastructure is not always in the budget. For this—and other reasons—many businesses, like yours, turn to managed cloud hosting providers for secure cloud hosting that can offer the expertise, the capabilities, and the people for success in the cloud. However, what happens if these services are offline?

When a cloud or managed hosting provider has your business-critical data on their systems, it can be hard to plan for disruptions—especially if the provider does not take a personalized approach to your success in the cloud. Unfortunately, if your business relies on applications and the systems that support them, then you need to establish a business continuity plan.

A business continuity plan helps you return to business-as-usual in the event of a disruption such as, a nature disaster, a hardware failure, an internal interference, a resource shortage, etc. Success for business continuity is often measured by your recovery time objective (how long it takes to return to business following a disturbance) and your recovery point objective (how often your synchronize data).

Just like security for business-critical environments, business continuity comes in multiple layers such as backups, disaster recovery, and high-availability. The range of business continuity solutions you need depends on how much an outage for a given length of time will affect your business. Collaborating with a customer centric cloud company can help you identify your ideal RTO, ideal RPO, and the capabilities your business needs to recover from a disruption before it affects your business and users.

When your users rely on your services continuously, any downtime could negatively affect your business. INetU provides business continuity services to manage your recovery time objective and your recovery point objective. Our team of experts will work with you to design, implement, support and monitor your business continuity solution.
