What is BDR? (Backup and Disaster Recovery)

BDR is a combination of data backup and disaster recovery tools that work together to ensure a company’s business continuity. It’s more than backing up your files. It’s a solution to get your business back to normal operations after a catastrophic event.

Why does your business need BDR?

  • Business disruptions can be costly and come at you from many different directions.
  • Fire, flood, lightning, or tornadoes.
  • Hardware or software failure resulting in data loss or corruption.
  • Employee mistakes or intentional sabotage.
  • Cyber attack (data breach, ransomware, or virus).

Can't I use a thumb drive or external hard drive to backup the data myself?

You sure can, and that's certainly better than nothing, but have you considered:

  • How much time (and cost) is being spent on DIY backups?
  • How often is your data getting backed up?
  • Is it safe from getting lost, damaged, or stolen?
  • Is it getting done correctly?
  • Is there a better solution?

Is there a better solution and how much does it cost?

There's no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to BDR. Cost will vary depending on your business requirements. A very basic but reliable solution can start at just a few dollars a month. Important considerations include the following:

  • Recovery Point Objective (RPO):
    • How much data can your business afford to lose?
  • Recovery Time Objective (RTO):
    • How long can your business tolerate being without its data?
  • Scope and severity of catastrophic events for which your business needs to have a plan.
