4 THINGS TO LOOK FOR IN A BUSINESS CONTINUITY SOLUTION.
1. Ransomware Protection
With the increase of Cyber-attacks around the world, it is important to protect your IT systems from all the ransomware variants that hackers use to exploit various IT systems. With the correct business continuity plan in place, sophisticated ransomware attacks like Petya, WannaCry or other Ransomware variants, will not hold your business to ransom. If Hackers take advantage of any exploits that might appear, you will be able to access your systems and restore your data to a time before the attack, thereby saving you from having to pay the Ransom to get your systems back.
2. Hybrid Cloud Backup
Experience has shown that a great formula for business continuity today, is a combination of on-site and off-site backup protection. Utilizing this hybrid solution improves fault tolerance, whilst it reduces the reliance on bandwidth and internet speed. The local backup device acts as a restore unit for everything, from server failover to restoring applications or files. If the local device should be compromised, data transferred to the Cloud Server will act as a replica of your site, and the business will continue to run. Therefore, it is critical that businesses today, employ a hybrid Cloud Backup solution to ensure their data integrity is maintained in the event of a disaster or any other interruption should occur.
3. Image Based Backup
An image based backup takes an actual image of the entire server, either virtual or physical, which then allows for the entire system or files/folders to be restored very quickly. In the event of a server failure, the image backup can be restored as a virtual machine within minutes, with virtually no interruption to the business, employees or clients. So the image based backup means faster file restores, bare metal restores, boot any backup as a virtual machine and run virtual offices locally or from the Cloud backup solution.
4. Successful Backup Verification
Backups are pointless if they cannot be restored. The backup solution we offer, will not only send you notification of a successful backups, the technology we use will virtualize each backup that is taken and turn this into a virtual machine. Once this is done, it then takes a “screenshot” and lets you know whether or not each backup is in a state that can be restored at any time. This technology also identifies any bootability issues in advance, which can then be fixed, so that you will not receive any “surprises” during a disaster recovery.

Green IT has been able to provide us with a Full Disaster recovery program made up of an onsite Backup Server which then synchronizes to a New Zealand based offsite Cloud Backup Server, for a fraction of the cost of other providers. We realized after the recent earthquakes we have experienced, that our business cannot afford to have our IT Systems down in the event of any major disasters, whether they be Earthquakes or Hacking attacks in the form of Ransomware.
After having recently experienced an earthquake that affected our business and day-to-day operations, we decided to use a recommended disaster recovery solution from Green IT, which is their New Zealand based Cloud Backup Solution.
