There’s no denying the negative impact of a severe data loss on your business. A recent report from Unitrends claims that 94% of organizations that suffer from a catastrophic data loss end up going out of business.
The bad news is that data loss can occur within any organization, from numerous smaller-scale events. This includes a hardware or operating system failure, accidental deletion, physical damage to the storage arrays, theft, and many other reasons.
Most businesses that fail to recover do so because they’re unable to restore their servers promptly. This means they’re unable to access contacts, orders, and operational files needed to serve their clients. Businesses must keep downtime to a minimum if they want to stay up and running.
As such, it pays for businesses to be proactive by having a reliable data recovery services partner in place before disaster strikes. Here are just a few of the benefits:
Any company facing a severe data loss needs to fix the issue as soon as possible. Having a contract with a partnering IT firm means they’ll start working to repair the problem right away. Numerous data recovery companies even promise full data restoration within 24 hours of diagnosis.
A second benefit is that many providers offer damage-free diagnostics to ensure the situation isn’t made worse during the initial investigation. Some firms that provide data recovery services also have policies in place that prevent them from charging if they cannot recover your data.
Even if your company has an IT team used to handling RAID arrays or logical recoveries, they probably don’t have the skills and equipment needed to perform a physical recovery on hard drives that have suffered from mechanical failure. These services require an altogether different skill set, and should only be done in a certified clean room environment where the fragile storage mediums won’t be damaged.
