Disaster Recovery as a Service 

Disaster Recovery as a Service (DRaaS) and business continuity planning should be considered a critical aspect of running a business.

No1 concern for organisations is data loss or leakage

Hoping for the Best? Plan For The Worst.

Many businesses have a business continuity plan in place, but underestimate the time and cost involved.

It's also important to test plans, to reveal any gaps so that they can be addressed proactively.

Cloud based solutions offer options to suit businesses of all sizes and budgets, and Chess can advise on a service that suits your specific business needs.

Be Prepared

Being prepared means having a solid business continuity and disaster recovery plan. Fundamental issues to consider include how quickly your business would need to recover from an incident, and how much data loss is acceptable. If you have a Disaster Recovery solution in place, ask yourself: 

  • Do you trust it?
  • When was the last time your backup was tested?
  • How long does it take to recover from your current backup solution?
  • How long can you realistically be down?
  • What is the financial cost of downtime to your business?
  • When a disaster occurs, is there an offsite copy?



Mission-critical, business-critical and non-critical applications vary across your organisation, with different service level agreements and different recovery requirements. By ranking your applications and services Chess can help design a suitable solution that addresses two key criteria, RTO and RPO.

Recovery Time Objective (RTO) 

This is the target time you set for normal operations to be restored after an incident occurs.

Recovery Point Objective (RPO)

This focuses on the data your business could lose after an incident, and setting a limit, measured in time.
