Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery and, in essence, disaster recovery planning, has always been a key element in business continuity planning; a plan of how ‘business as usual’ can be maintained in the event of a disaster.

Our Disaster Recovery Services enables you to have either a complete ‘replica’ of your site, or a cut-down version for supplying the most critical IT services in event of failures. Ensuring that your business can keep running whilst the main site is unavailable.

Here at The Bunker, we work with you to identify all services critical to your organisation and build a bespoke plan for your environment.

Is it right for me?

In the event of a disaster at your main site, how long can you afford for your infrastructure to be unavailable?

Disaster recovery solutions ensure continuity of service, and can be achieved through single or multiple layers of your infrastructure, depending on your environment specifics and with levels of automation required at each layer to meet your business needs. Your systems are replicated and ready to take over, should the worst happen.

It has always been essential to plan for failover throughout your entire estate, from end user applications, databases and networking. Our services enable scheduled failover with disaster recovery testing to give you, and your business, peace of mind in the event of a disaster.

The Bunker’s Disaster Recovery product is tailored, designed and deployed to your needs in order to achieve your business continuity requirements across your virtual and physical infrastructure.
