    There are plenty of things you can do on your own that would be much cheaper than hiring a company to handle it for you. Always keep backups of your data, ALWAYS. You can also choose to use a solution like Amazon Web Services where the data is physically protected way more than in your own shop, and it is much easier to setup backup solutions. This also allows you to store your data in geographically separated areas across the world to ensure that your data won't be compromised by natural disaster in the area.

    Just a couple of ideas.

    What was the nature of the problem, and are you recovering the data or just thinking of being safer in the future? Many types of data loss can be recovered, which is what I assume you are working with the disaster recovery team on, but perhaps not.

    There are lots of web hosting companies out there in addition to Amazon, and they all have slight differences in services that are each better suited for different situations. Failing that, though, you'd need some pretty good data backup/restore protocols in place, which will often mean at least replicating the data off site to somewhere.

    Did you ask Hillary to give your servers a clean?

    Re: Disaster recovery solutions

    In this modern era of “always-on” business, prolonged downtime is not acceptable. It is the need of the generation to keep small or large businesses running all the time. A steady rise in data security attacks and continuously changing IT landscape have revolutionized the disaster recovery market in recent years. According to stats, 86% of companies experienced system downtime in the last 12 months. A report says, 90% of businesses losing data due to disaster are forced to shut down within two years. To most of the organizations, reliance on IT simply means not operating when the system went down. Such companies need to have a disaster recovery solution in place to make sure the businesses operate even after a disaster.
