Shockproof Your Business Today With The Most Resilient Disaster Recovery Available

The Only Thing Harder Than Planning For An Emergency Is Explaining Why You Didn’t!

Over the last few months we’ve been working hard to make Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity more cost effective and simple to set up. Unfortunately it’s not a subject that everyone enjoys reading about but at the same time it’s something that many businesses cannot do without.

Hopefully your business doesn’t fit in with any of the below but if it does we feel we have the answer to any concerns you might have.

Although the statistics may appear to be on the negative side, it doesn’t have to be like this for your business.

  • 80% of companies have not developed crisis management for IT coverage to support business continuity, keeping the business functioning effectively.
  • 25% of financial institutions have no business continuity plan.
  • 19% of financial institutions who have business continuity plans have not tested them in the last five years.
  • 80% of business without a well structured recovery plan are forced to shut within 12 months of a flood or fire (information courtesy of the London Chamber of Commerce).

Having a well structured plan in place can shockproof your business against many of the events that could, under normal circumstances prove catastrophic for your business.

Flooding, storm damage, power cuts, human error and computer viruses are common place events that can adversely affect the functionality of a business. These are just a few of the many unexpected reasons a business might have to cease trading. Small and medium sized businesses are particularly vulnerable if they don’t have a contingency plan in place when disaster strikes.

Having a Business Contingency Strategy is proven to protect your business:

  • Minimise interruption of normal business operations.
  • Limit disruption and damage.
  • Minimise any financial and reputational repercussions.
  • Establish alternative means of operations.
  • Train personnel in emergency procedures.
  • Provide smooth and rapid service restoration.

Quite simply, the question we’re asking businesses to think about is “how does your plan stack up?” Could your business continue to function without an office or IT system?

You’re probably now thinking “do the costs add up and is it really worth it?” The following example might help. This is what occurred when Sabre Travel’s IT system crashed for 3 hours.

Sabre Travel – Sabre operate a booking system used by 300 of the world’s biggest airlines. The travel world was thrown into turmoil when their systems went down.. From a customer’s perspective thousands faced long delays, cancellations and couldn’t book flights. From a business perspective there was the loss of income due to customers inability to book flights and a negative impact on brand image.

The outage is estimated to have cost Virgin Airlines between £6.5 and £10 million pounds.

On a much smaller scale, a business with a yearly revenue of £250,000 can expect costs of £147.00 per hour, or £1,176.00 per day from down-time. These figures do not include the costs of reputational damage and potential fines if data is lost due to an incident.

When looking at those costs, can a SMB survive for example a week of downtime resulting from flooding? Disasters such as this don’t only carry financial costs, but also reputational damage. Furthermore, the disaster may lead to a loss of data which can result in hefty penalties from regulatory bodies.

On a positive note, choosing a solution that is both cost effective and meets your requirements has just been made a whole lot easier. Just ask yourself the questions below and if any of them make you feel a little uncomfortable the planning process has already begun.

  • When did you last try restoring your business critical data?
  • Are you confident that in the event of a disaster recovery that you can get your IT system back-up seamlessly?
  • If your office became unavailable what would happen to you clients and staff?
  • Could you survive for more than a week without IT and an office?  
  • Does your insurance cover your business for loss of data and income?
  • Do you know how much your business would lose as a result of 1 week of downtime?

7 Questions to ask yourself before you choose your new Host – Do I get what I pay for?

So as we come to the end of what we hope has been an informative story, we come to what might be the most important element.

Part 8: The Cost

Following on from the Introduction and previous blog posts including last weeks insight into Tools and applications . It’s now time to turn our attention to the price you pay.

Last but not least, pricing is an important factor when choosing a web host. With so many providers out there we know it can be a difficult choice to make, especially when you have to consider all the different variables that go into pricing an individual plan. The general rule of thumb is that you get what you pay for.

If a company is charging a very small monthly fee, they have no choice but to skimp in other areas, perhaps in some of the ways we have highlighted in these blogs.

Another area to be on the lookout for is renewal pricing. Many hosts will offer a significantly discounted price for the first year in order to “get you hooked,” but when renewal time comes, your bill can be up to three times the cost of your first year! Make sure to read what you are buying and what the future pricing is likely to be.

At Netcetera we have simple pricing, no hidden costs or small print and to help you get started we allow you to pay monthly. There is no renewal pricing, what you see is what you get. Our plans start at only £2.99 per month and regardless of which solution you require, each one comes with fantastic reliability, security and awesome support without sacrificing on quality.

Make the right choice for you

As you can see, there are many factors that come into play when choosing a web host. These general factors should help you find the right one, even if it’s not with Netcetera we would still hope you’ll see the tremendous value we provide. If at any time you have to question if Netcetera is right for you, simply head to our website and start up a live chat. We’ll be glad to answer any questions you might have.

7 Questions to ask yourself before you choose your new Host – Tools and Applications

Part 7: How easy it is it to create your website?

Following on from the Introduction, Longevity and HistorySupportHardware thoughts on Network and the insight into backups we covered last week. It’s now time to turn our attention to the software and systems that are available to allow your creativity to flow and make your dream site a reality.

Just like when you are choosing a new mobile phone or desktop, there are different platforms your web host can use to help you manage your website. Like iOS for iPhones, and Android on other phones, all of the control panels help you do things like adding account users, email addresses, FTP accounts, databases just like you do when setting up a new phone.

So why does this matter? There are many free, unsupported control panels out there, and some are easier to use than others. Play around with your proposed web host. Try out their control panel. See how it works and what questions you have.

At Netcetera you can access 1000’s of one click installations to give you the applications and tools you need to make building your new website as easy as possible with stunning results. 

The one-click installations include WordPress, Drupal, or Magento in literally less than a few seconds and most of them are free.
