Business Continuity


At Reliance, we understand that disasters come in all shapes and sizes.  From a server crash to an EF5 tornado, your Disaster Recovery objectives change with the nature of the event you are responding to.  At Reliance, we build scalable, robust DR solutions that will adapt to the unforeseen circumstances surrounding a disaster.

Disaster Recovery – Disaster recovery is focused on helping your company respond to an unforeseen event in a way that helps you return to normal operations in the shortest time possible.  Our approach blends different technologies to help meet your business needs.

Business Continuity – Business continuity focuses on keeping your most critical infrastructure consistently available during an unforeseen event.  We understand that communication during an event is often the most challenging aspect of dealing with a disaster, and our approach keeps your most critical data and communications platforms available through cloud services and fault tolerant systems design.

A Modular Approach
A good Disaster Recovery plan includes planning for RTO (Return to Operation) and RPO (Recovery Point Objectives).  Each of these goals requires different methodologies and different tools.  Reliance builds modular systems built on several award-winning tools and services that will adapt to the situation at hand.  Some of the tools that we use are:

  • ShadowProtect On-Site backups:  Meeting a quick RTO goal often means keeping a local copy of your data for quicker recovery.  Image based backups allow for quicker recovery of both single files and full server restores.
  • Intronis Off-Site backups: If your office becomes inaccessible or is damaged, keeping a copy of your data in the cloud allows you to access your data from anywhere with an internet connection.
  • Datto Backup and Disaster Recovery (BDR)– A hybrid on-site and off-site solution, DATTO BDR is an appliance that hosts data locally and manages the offsite replication process.  Reliance uses this technology in larger environments with significant backup storage needs to meet both RPO and RTO objectives with a simplified management structure. Learn more about our Recommended solution!
