Don’t have a Disaster Recovery Plan?
In our experience, upwards of 70% of small businesses have no business continuity and disaster recovery plan in place. Recovering from a disaster is not only expensive but can be very time consuming. A large percentage of companies that do not have a plan in place will go out of business within a year after a major data disaster.
Don’t know where to start? Not to worry, JDL is here to help.

Business continuity is the preparation and planning of an organization to ensure its ability to conduct critical functions in the event of an emergency. Organizations should have a preparedness plan in place for emergency events that might halt work completely (office fire) and for those that will alter how normal operations are done (global pandemic).
Some of the ways JDL can help your organization with business continuity are:
The idea of the cloud can be scary for some but migrating to the cloud is one of the biggest steps an organization can take towards instituting an effective disaster recovery plan. With most, if not all, of your main systems in the cloud, there should be few problems getting back up and running fast after a disaster. Let JDL assess your current cloud environment or start your new migration today.
Network resilience is an organizations ability to continue normal operations when faced with network outages or failures. Has the internet ever gone down while you were working? With proper network resiliency, you would have a backup ISP ready to keep your business running. This is just one example of how JDL can help your organization’s network to be more resilient.
Storing the same data on two or more servers will allow your organization to continue operations and lose as little data as possible in the event of a disaster. We all know hardware not only can but will fail on occasion. Allowing JDL to help you with server redundancy means your business won’t fail along with it.
Now is the time to contact JDL to ensure you are doing everything you can for your organization from a business continuity perspective.
Disaster Recovery & Backups
Disaster recovery is an organizations ability to recover when something directly affects their operations. How quickly could your organization recover from a disaster (office fire, pandemic, ransomware, etc.) and resume normal business processes?
No business is immune to disaster. When disaster strikes, the ability to swiftly restore lost data can save a business from total loss. This is why backups are a crucial component of and organizations Disaster Recovery Plan.
Today, clients require more from their managed service provider (MSP). A successful MSP will be available with 24/7 support and service to ensure your organization can recover quickly in the event of a disaster. This is why decerning professionals hire JDL Technologies as their MSP.
One hour of downtime can cost the average small to medium size organization between $50,000 and $500,000 . Can your organization survive a hit that big?
Some of the ways JDL can help your organization with data backups are:
Full migration to the cloud is not an option for all organizations. When considering data backup, your organization first needs to consider whether you want on-premise servers, cloud-based servers, or a combination of both. With a Cloud Assessment from JDL Technologies, you will be armed with the information you need to make an accurate decision for your organization.
Oftentimes backups, while crucial, are put on the back burner for other priorities. Not performing regular backups is one of the most common mistakes we see with organizations. JDL will prioritize your backups, so you know your data will be there when you need it.
If you never actually restore a file, app, or server, you won’t know if your data will be available when you need it. It is our experience that 34% of organizations don’t test their backups and for those that do, 77% find failures. JDL will frequently test your backups for accuracy.
