Disaster recovery response times may be different for every unique business. Recovery options range from an actual disaster recovery plan with minimal loss of data, switch and go, to the recovery of last written data. In most business cases, the traditional data backup using recently written data. The time-frames can range anywhere between 0-24hrs, or more if hardware replacement is needed.

- Disaster recovery – minimal downtime, switch and go
- Data backup and restore

With the Global IT premium cloud, customers have the option of maintaining a replica of their computer system environments within the Global IT Premium cloud, or, merely backing up data as online repository storage to be downloaded as needed. With replicated systems, customers have the option to log in the live cloud system, using our high-level encrypted methods, and have access to their systems and data.

Also, Global IT disaster recovery or backup planning comes with a storage specialist account manager (8 AM - 5 PM), and technical team (24/7) to properly plan, monitor, tests, and recover data.

Global IT cloud storage utilizes the latest, fastest infrastructure technologies. Facilities are within premium data centers and provide maximum up-time and performance. Regardless of backup policy, a responsible recovery plan should always include testing. Global IT systems are available 24/7, and technicians regularly test backup restore.
With a complete replica of your technical environment in the cloud, workers are now able to access the same systems and information when needed, and from any network. Cloud systems are operational 24/7 and infrastructure is maintained by the Global IT cloud team.

Planning: Global IT account manager and engineers are assigned to design the ideal DR (disaster recovery) plan for your environment. Customer technologies, resources, availability, security, bandwidth, acceptable loss of data, etc. are taken into consideration to avoid performance issues and maintain maximum productivity.

Replication: Replication is applied using various industry leading vendor technologies, cloud systems, ongoing monitoring, and maintenance of systems.

Access: High-level encryption configurations secure access to Global IT Cloud systems. For remote users, a client is installed, which when activated will allow system access to the DR site (our cloud) so users can resume workflow from any location.
Global IT provides managed backup services which include planning, software licensing, configuration, monitoring, security, and full restoration or assistance if needed. Data backup copies are stored in the Cloud IT cloud using our cloud centralized storage systems.

Planning: Account managers develop and backup profile based on a system, user, and operational information and implement a backup strategy. Technicians then test the backup systems periodically to ensure systems are readily available to restore on demand.

Security: Connections between customer systems and the Global IT cloud are custom configured so that data is encrypted and files secured.

Data backup: Copies of data are then scheduled for upload to Global IT servers with alerts sent to admins. Regular tests and maintenance come included in the low monthly fee.
