If you’re prepared, it really isn’t a disaster (and neither is disaster recovery). With the right precautions and data management protocol, ThrottleNet can get your business back in business quickly. We don’t just create real-time backups; we check the integrity of your entire data backup.
Through image-based backup solutions, we can guarantee that your data is viable so your business can thrive. When we start with them, a lot of clients are backing up their data, but not checking the backup; many of the files are worthless. They’ve been wasting time, money, and leaving their business vulnerable. If you’d like us to check the validity of your backup, just give us a call or complete the form in the sidebar.
Don’t worry, we’ve seen it all and can handle anything. No two businesses are identical (cookie cutter solutions are only good for making cookies). We take the time to know your business and develop customized business continuity and disaster recovery plans designed to meet your specific needs.

We can save you both.
Business continuity and disaster recovery requires a strategy
One of your most valuable (and irreplaceable) assets is your business’ data. In fact, a recent report by the Better Business Bureau states that 65% of businesses could not remain profitable for more than three months if they permanently lost access to essential data. Data loss simply isn’t an option. No data? No business.
The first ingredient in business continuity is your disaster recovery plan. Gartner estimates that only 35% of small and mid-sized businesses have a disaster recovery plan. Yes, that means 65% will be flying blind in the event of a crisis. It’s not difficult, but thorough disaster recovery planning takes absolutely every situation into account; natural disasters, power outages or power supply inconsistencies, ransomware, cyber-attacks, and of course…human error (we really have seen it all).
Like any plan, we start with a goal based on a detailed disaster recovery strategy we create based on what we know about your needs. Like anything, a good recovery strategy must be specific, but it’s a pretty simple, straightforward formula.
Together, we’ll establish a goal for how quickly your data and business processes must be restored. How quickly does your business need to be back up and running? This is called your recovery time objective (RTO). Then, we’ll work with your team to see how far back in the files we need to go for normal operations to resume. This is your recovery point objective (RPO).
By simply pre-determining these two factors, disaster recovery goes from a fire drill to a routine checklist. We have all of your IT systems mapped out and have a hot site prepped and ready to go if necessary. Whatever it takes.
Protect your essential data
If an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, the right data protection plan is worth a ton. Yes, your data needs high availability for internal use, but your information systems and information technology need to be grounded in data security. We start with a full understanding of your business operations, including a detailed accounting of all your IT assets (hardware and software) and conduct a full risk assessment.
While firewalls are of utmost importance, we also train your staff on cybersecurity hygiene and best practices, address any particular compliance concerns, and provide 24/7 monitoring to detect suspicious activity as soon as it occurs so we can take immediate action.
Data protect within your budget
Of course, all data is irreplaceable, but some data is crucial to the continuity of your business. After conducting a thorough business impact analysis, we can help you identify the areas that are most vital and the maximum amount of time your data can be ‘down’ to tailor an IT disaster recovery plan that’s both effective and cost-effective.
If you’ve ever wondered, “What do I have to lose?” This is your answer. The answer will drive the budget you should allocate to ensure operability and continuity for unexpected events. We can help craft a disaster impact analysis survey for your management that will do more than determine the financial impact of data loss. We’ll help quantify reputation impact and potential regulatory censure as well as document vital business processes, supply chain vulnerabilities, and assess the potential for permanent client loss.
With this information, we can work with your team to identify the most vital components of your operation and work to ensure that they never go down. Never. For some clients, we have a complete data backup in a hybrid cloud environment that acts as a ‘hot spot.’ It’s a permanent, continually updated skeleton operation that’s on a server ready to deploy at a moment’s notice.
No, not every business needs this level of readiness. Just rest assured that we will work with your team to find the “just right” solution, so your company continues to thrive day in and day out.
