 Business continuity

The need for robust backup and recovery systems has never been more pressing. Data growth continues unabated … corporate governance and industry legislation have made executives liable for the security of their corporate information. At the same time, virtualization and cloud computing are reshaping the face of business.

If you're making a move into the cloud, you need to integrate your legacy infrastructure and services (including data centres, security and networks) with those of the private and public cloud. How do you ensure your cloud services are delivered reliably and consistently? Does your cloud provider offer specific commitments regarding the quality and reliability of its services? Will your data be safe in the cloud?

Overview
2

 Dimension Data works with you to assess your backup and recovery requirements for both on-premise and cloud workloads and data.

Our consultants follow a process of discovery, analysis and recommendations across the three key areas of the physical backup and recovery environment:

  • Business: service levels and business unit needs
  • Infrastructure: technology and architecture
  • Operations: people and processes

If you've moved workloads to the cloud, we ensure that business continuity isn't placed at risk by:

  • assessing the correct cloud architecture and strategy for your business
  • performing cloud enablement and integration projects on your behalf
  • managing private, public and hybrid cloud architectures 
  • automating and offering committed service level agreements
