How do you prevent critical system failures?

When an outage strikes and you lose access to your IT systems, typically the first 30 minutes are dedicated to finding the cause. After that, the outage also needs to be fixed to get your systems back online. But how can you avoid critical system outages?

Depending on the outage and the response plan, it can take hours to several days before all of your systems are running optimally again.

90% of all IT outages are the result of:

  • Power outage
  • Hardware problems
  • Network failure

A traditional backup does not ensure continuous access to your business critical systems during these types of outages. Do you have a plan in place that will ensure your business is back up and running as quickly as possible?

IT-emergency response

 

Should you lose access to your mission-critical systems at this time, what part of your business comes to a complete halt?

Most companies operate a traditional backup system. But how long does it take to get that up and running? And what happens if new hardware is needed or there is a prolonged power outage?

Your business-critical systems can be offline for days in those cases. IT-emergency response provides ongoing protection for your business-critical systems. Within minutes, your business is up and running again.

Not having access to your systems is a huge problem and can have serious consequences for your business. If a web shop is unavailable or a production line comes to a standstill, a lot of turnover is lost. Traditional backup is good, but recovery can take days. It is not the most efficient method of getting your business-critical systems up and running again.

With IT-emergency response, your systems are continuously safeguarded and you have access to an online version in case of an outage. Your business is back up and running on this version within minutes, until your own systems are restored. Can you afford not to choose this solution?

 

 

Consumption based hosting

Traditional server solutions are usually based on peak loads, which only occur at certain times of the year.

It is an expensive solution that guarantees against slow systems or, in the worst case, the loss of access. During the periods without peak load, the servers are far too powerful and your company has an expensive and unnecessary overcapacity.

With consumption-based hosting, you only pay for the server capacity you need. The environment is scalable and can be adjusted to your needs at any time.

When there is an unexpected load, the capacity is automatically increased or decreased to avoid failures and unnecessary overcapacity costs. You only pay for what you use. And so you can avoid critical system failures.
