Our Business Continuity Services
Backing up data is the first step to any successful business continuity plan (BCP). With our Business Continuity as a Service – Backup (BCaaS-BU) offering, you will be able to access your critical applications and restore your data on request, even during a network failure or outage.
Buchanan’s BCaaS-BU solution uses Microsoft Azure technologies to backup files, folders, and servers to the cloud. Backups can use near-real-time replication or run in low usage windows. Buchanan consistently reviews clients’ backup strategies to ensure the correct servers and data are being backed up correctly and on schedule, making adjustments as necessary to provide only the most accurate, secure, and accessible backups. Criteria we take into consideration includes:
- What data and systems require backup
- How often complete backups should be completed
- Capacity requirements for on-premises and offsite locations
- How long backups should be kept in accordance with regulatory or compliance requirements
Buchanan’s Business Continuity as a Service – Disaster Recovery (BCaaS-DR) provides complete protection against natural and/or human disasters that could disrupt your business operations.
Our BCaaS-DR model utilizes Azure technology and capabilities to enable failover of a physical or virtualized environment to a Buchanan-managed Microsoft Azure regional data center in response to a customer-declared disaster.
The following are included in Buchanan’s BCaaS-DR solution:
- Provide rapid recovery after an outage
- Maintain the disaster recovery plan for all the servers and data in scope
- Perform annual disaster recovery testing for failing over and failing back
- Review production changes monthly and update disaster recovery services to reflect those changes
