Backing Up and Recovering Your Data – What Would Happen If You Lost It?

As more of a timing coincidence right after Hurricane Matthew devastated Haiti along with parts of Florida, George, Virginia along North and South Carolina, I completed my 2016 certification for Veeam, which offers data backup and recovery services . I did post several blogs leading up to the storm hitting us in the SE last week and luckily for South Florida where we are based, the storm skipped by us but made impact along the coast and caused catastrophic damage along these areas.

Part of what also likely impacted as part of this horrific storm were the vast amounts of data that companies and other organizations store to help drive their businesses. For those of you who had a well thought-out Business Continuity Plan and didn’t lose any of your data, kudos to you first and foremost. For those of you who weren’t able to save, store or worse, recover your data, that is troublesome obviously. Again because I had planned taking this certification well before Matthew hit, the timing is right to simply say that Veeam specializes in several areas that could help you the next time an incident (weather or otherwise) occurs. Their specialties include:

  • Providing RTPO of 15 minutes or less for all applications and data using
  • High Speed Recovery – Enables Low Recovery Time
  • Data Loss Avoidance – Avoids Data Loss with RPO’s of 15 Minutes or Less
  • Verified Recovery – Ensures That Files, Applications and Virtual Servers Can Be Reliably Restored
  • Leveraged Data – Testing of Changes in a Production-Like Environment
  • Complete Visibility – Provides Monitoring and Alerting Tools to your IT Environment

Ultimately what we at DirecLogix can help you with is to understand what you are doing to help reduce the risk of data loss and help you recover what you need when you need it. We can also help you discover other potential problems in your IT environment, so please contact me at so we can plan an assessment for your organization.

Thanks! Glen
