FAQs

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between backups and disaster recovery?

The backups provided by Venom IT are copies of your data that are stored off-site. However, if something untoward happened at your offices (e.g. flooding or fire) that ruined your workstations, your data would be safe but you still might not necessarily be able to work.

Backups are a cheaper option to keep your data secure, but disaster recovery provides a means to carry on working regardless of what has happened. This is where hosted desktops come in. A hosted desktop can be accessed from anywhere with reasonable internet, using pretty much any device (Windows, Mac, Linux, Chromebook, Android).

To illustrate the difference: Image your offices got flooded and made completely unsafe with no electricity. Even with backups, you still can’t work.

If on the other hand you had full disaster recovery, you could provide your staff with laptops and let them work from a central location that has Wi- Fi. Alternatively, you could send everyone home and ask them to use their home computers to connect to the (virtual) office network.

In short: you could be up and running again within a very small space of time.

What is covered by a disaster recovery solution?

Venom IT offers various deals and packages for disaster recovery. It’s best to discuss this with one of our staff so that we can ascertain your needs and create something that fits your budget and circumstances.

Typically the questions you should consider are:

  • How will we communicate internally?
  • How will we communicate externally?
  • How will we access our documents and continue working?
  • Where will we accommodate our staff?

We provide several solutions such as Skype for Business, VoIP phone systems and hosted desktops, as well as supplying hardware to suit your needs.

What data should I include?

A disaster recovery plan is meant to provide the full functionality of your business, on short notice, during time of distress. Really, that means all your work data should be included in the disaster recovery solution.

How long does it take to be able to work again after a severe incident or disaster?

That depends on the level of disaster recovery solution. A full-suite solution can have you up and running within a couple of hours (or even minutes) whereas a partial solution can take a day or more to set up and deploy. Also, bear in mind that during times of disaster such as flooding, IT companies experience a huge demand for service. That can mean a partial solution could take even longer to deploy, whereas deploying a ready-to-go solution would take much less time.

What is the best method of disaster recovery?

Let’s look at 3 methods: Off-site backup, cloud backup, and full cloud-based infrastructure.

 Off-site backupCloud backupCloud-based infrastructure
CostLowMediumNot as high as you might think
Time to deployHigh
You still need workstations onto which to restore your backups, getting everything connected etc.
Medium
With your backups already in the cloud, and with virtual clones of all your physical servers ready to be booted up, this takes very little time. Bear in mind though that you still need workstations for your staff to work from.
No time/Always on
The most secure solution for office work on a day-to-day basis: hosted desktops with integrated VoIP.
With your entire team using this solution, disasters such as flooding get reduced to inconveniences.
Everyone can simply stay at home and work from there. Those without home computers can work at an internet café, shared office space or you could buy and deliver a laptop to accommodate their needs.

From the above it can be clearly seen that budget is a strong determining factor, but all things being equal, the obvious best solution is a full cloud-based infrastructure.
