Disaster Recovery and Continuity of Operations

Understanding the differences between Disaster Recovery Planning, Business Resiliency, Business Continuity Planning, and other disaster recovery (DR) terms can be confusing. Success in business today requires and demands your IT infrastructure and computer processing environment be highly available, robustly designed, redundant in critical areas, fully backed up, easily recoverable from an incident, and centrally managed.

Dynetics can assist you in developing a strategic plan to meet your objectives; provide help in putting the pieces together in a meaningful way and in a proper perspective; and test the plans and systems put in place for recovery and continuity. Technology can be implemented to meet critical recovery time objectives (RTO), recovery point objectives (RPO), and test time objectives (TTO), enhancing business survivability and, at the same time, minimizing business unit outages. Dynetics has fully qualified and certified consultants who can assist in planning and designing up-to-date technology architectures to meet and/or exceed these objectives.
