Backup & Disaster Recovery Solutions
Losing data during a server failure can severely impact a company’s bottom line. This is especially true if no backup and recovery plans have been implemented. Mass data loss can have substantial financial impacts and lead to hours of wasted productivity.
While you might not be able to control when power outages, ransomware or server crashes occur, you can reduce future complications by implementing a solid backup and disaster recovery solution ahead of time.

How to Plan for Recovering From a Disaster?
While most businesses understand the need for a backup plan, many have not created a robust action plan for a worst-case scenario. While keeping a single copy of essential data on a separate network might seem reliable, in reality, it is insufficient and can lead to devastating consequences.
The 3-2-1 Backup rule is a proven approach to data retention and storage.
- Keep three (3) copies of your data (one primary copy and two secondary copies)
- Store two (2) copies on different types of media (local drive, tape drive, NAS)
- Backup one (1) copy offsite, either in a remote storage location or on the cloud
To minimize business disruptions and ensure continuity, preparing for all potential risks becomes essential, and the 3-2-1 backup strategy should be an integrated part of your recovery plan.
What is Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BCDR)?
Business continuity and disaster recovery is a set of strategies and techniques implemented by organizations to recover from disruption and resume continuous business operations. Implementing an ICCS BCDR plan will protect and minimize damage caused by disasters and help you preserve essential data to support compliance retention requirements.
Recovery Point Objective (RPO) measures the frequency of your backup data and how much-lost data is deemed acceptable by your organization. RPOs indicate the amount of information lost or needed to be re-uploaded after a disaster.
Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is the amount of downtime a business can tolerate while limiting consequences on company productivity. While some companies can potentially lose thousands of dollars in just a few minutes due to server failure, others will feel a minimal impact within the same amount of time.
What is the Difference Between a Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) and a Business Continuity Plan (BCP)?
While a DRP focuses on getting your organization mobile after a disruption, a BCP consists of identifying and evaluating backup systems and other details to keep operations running. Business continuity planning and disaster recovery planning work best when developed in parallel, as they both contribute to the same ultimate goal of minimizing damage and ensuring a quick recovery.
