Recovery Testing Service – How Test My Backups can help you!
When it comes to backup and recovery; around 90% of focus is on the backup side of things. To help small to medium businesses (SMB) it seemed like an excellent idea to provide a recovery testing service that’s affordable to all.
It’s similar to paying insurance premiums; you perform backups in case something happens that cause’s data loss. Not unlike insurance claims; it’s never straight forward performing a successful data recovery.
What’s the story behind providing a Recovery Testing Service?
Over a number of years consulting small to medium businesses, and also working for backup vendors, we discovered a theme. The worst tickets to deal with were System Administrators and Managed Service Providers (MSP’s) in the middle of live data loss or disaster recovery scenarios.
The panic and stress that’s evident from the user after the recovery process failed, or worse – unsure of even where to start; adds extra pressure on the technical support team.
In all cases the extra stress on everyone was preventable. Surely there’s a better way!
Reasons why IT departments and Managed Service Providers don’t perform regular test recoveries?
As mentioned above all the extra stress and anxiety that comes with recovery failure is preventable. The answer is to find out about any of the potential issues that may arise before being in a live disaster recovery scenario.
The way to do this is to perform regular test recoveries of data from real backups. We all know it’s important – however; when asked if a test recovery had been performed before the data loss; the majority said no with reasoning around:
- It takes too much time.
- There isn’t a test lab available to do one.
- You guys are the experts and you’ll do it for me.
