Test My Backups performs recovery testing of business backups to ensure disaster recovery and business continuity. Depending on your requirements our backup recovery testing can be performed on a monthly or even daily basis, and be both automated or manual. 

How we Recovery Test Backups

Recovery Testing should be done every day, by experts that thoroughly test your environment to ensure your RPO (Recovery Points Objectives) and RTO (Recovery Time Objective) are meet and exceeded. Along with daily recovery testing of backups, we are also happy to discuss your requirements for once off or even monthly testing.

After testing your backups, you will receive a detailed report on the recoverability of your backups. If your backup did not recover as expected, we will report why and the recommended steps you should take. At a top level the report provides  green, amber or red indicators. Each indicator allows you to further analyse the amber and red alerts which require action or urgent attention.

Backup and recovery testing is a crucial feature of any disaster recovery plan. Back up of data

Backup recovery testing is an essential part of a disaster recovery plan. Backup of crucial data is now a number one priority for a growing number of businesses. But, many companies still don’t have adequate backup recovery testing as a part of their operations. It’s not at all unusual for routine backup recover testing to unearth serious issues in software and processes, leading to damage or loss of data.

This is why it’s essential to conduct regular backup recovery testing, not just broadly but for recovery abilities for individual files. It’s important not assume that backup recovery testing working under normal conditions will work should the worst happen. Without a plan your company risks data loss, loss of operational time, and the redundancy of the whole project.

Larger companies tend to conduct backup recovery testing once year – this is best practice. Whenever changes are made to software or hardware, however, it’s important to conduct proper backup recovery testing.
