Disaster recovery is different to backups. Disaster recovery is the plan to get your business up and running again after any type of major incident. Normal backups can take a long time to get you up and running so disaster recovery looks at ways of making this faster.

What does down time cost your business?

Let’s look at a small office with 2 accountants and 20 staff.

• Accountants charge out rate $400 p/h

• Staff average charge out rate $150 p/h

Normally they all bill an average of 6.5 hours a day so imagine that the server is down all day.

Worst case scenario is they do not bill a single hour that day.

$400 x 2 x 6.5 = $ 5,200

$150 x 20 x 6.5 = $19,500

       Total = $24,700

Worse still, the IPO (tender) that they have been working on for months is due in today and they do not get it in on time.  You then have to add in all the intangible costs such as missing customer deadlines, potentially re-doing completed work, stress on staff, loss of credibility and so on.
