How long can your business survive without access to your IT systems?

?

If disaster strikes, work often stops and any work that does occur often must be redone. How many hours of work are you willing to repeat in a worst case scenario?
How many hours of work are you willing to lose / repeat?

?

In order to give you a correct calculation we need to get an idea of how much data you have in your system across your organization.
How much data do you have on critical business systems?

?

What is the timeframe between each of your backups? E.g. every hour, once a day, once a week.
How often do you back up this data?

?

From when disaster strikes, how long does it take you to assess the situation, access your backups, and start the recovery process?
How long does it take to initiate your recovery process?

?

Storing your data locally is designed for fast data transfers, however you are at risk if there is a disaster in the office such as fire, floods or theft. Cloud data is stored off-site, such as in a Datto data center, which brings an extra level of availability albeit at a slower speed for full bare metal restores.
Where do you currently store your backups?

?

Speed of cloud recovery comes down to the amount of data you are trying to recover and your download speed. Devices with slower connections will take longer to recover.

With the information that you've provided, and using certain assumptions made based on how businesses today typically function, we have estimated your downtime losses to be {{displayhourlyRevenueCost}} per hour, and as a result, you could be looking at a total potential loss of around {{ localdowntimecost }}{{ clouddowntimecost }} in {{ displaylocalDowntime }}{{ displaycloudDowntime }} of downtime. This is assuming that your recovery process works exactly as planned, and could be worse if you experience any further glitches. For this reason, it's critical to regularly test your recovery capabilities.If the recovery process fails, you could be looking at additional losses of {{perbackupdowntime}} per recovery attempt.
