Business Continuity

An Effective “Just Keep Going” Strategy

When even an hour of IT system downtime can cost your organization more than it can afford to lose, it’s vital to have a solution in place that can restore normal business operations even in the event of a total systems failure.

Konica Minolta’s business continuity services ensure that your organization can continue business operations if your primary information systems experience any damages. With a business continuity solution, your organization can trust that it will have access to critical business information and IT systems necessary to support primary business tasks at a secondary business site. Whether your timeline is system restoration in a couple of hours or days, we can make sure it happens.

How Your Cloud-Based System Will Support Your Business Continuity Plan

Cloud services include many on-demand duties such as analytics, databases, servers and networking. Using a cloud-based service can be a beneficial option for your company as it offers several advantages, including eliminating hardware and maintenance costs. Cloud business continuity solutions also increase storage availability for your company. When you decentralize your storage availability, you’ll have multiple storage centers available for use in the event of a virus or system failure.

Having a cloud-based system in place is vital for transaction- and data-focused companies that can’t afford any downtime. In the event that you can’t access your main offices, having cloud-based systems provides a seamless alternative and error-free date recovery to improve business continuity.

Traditional recovery solutions can take hours to transfer data from on-premise storage systems, such as flash drives or servers, to recovery hardware, which can delay normal operations for the entire company. Cloud systems are more resilient against potential outages and will improve your business productivity.
