Not many things can kill a company overnight. But data loss and business interruption can cost you thousands and put you out of business in a matter of hours.

Whether it’s caused by a power failure in your building or a ransomware virus locking you out of your system, the result is the same: your business is compromised. 

The estimated average cost* of an hour of downtime is $8,000 for small businesses, $74,000 for mid-sized companies and $700,000 for large businesses. It's the cost of not looking ahead.      

At Switchfast, we’re committed to keeping you up and running. That’s why we provide a comprehensive range of disaster recovery services that protect your data from today’s most dangerous and pervasive threats.

On-Site Backups

When it comes to on-site recovery, it's all about speed. With traditional tape backups, restoring your operations could take days. With our Backup & Disaster Recovery Device, we can recover your data in minutes, failover entire servers in less than 1 hour, and even restore your business data should your office burn to the ground.

Switchfast also protects your on-site backups from advanced ransomware, which has begun to target external hard drives and the backups stored on them, in addition to your production data.

Off-Site Backups

Over-the-wire backups protect your business from even the most crippling disasters. Switchfast can send your data to multiple geographically isolated data centers, which have protections including redundant power, heating/cooling, and Internet connectivity.

Your data is encrypted during the entire process, so you don't have to worry about sensitive information being intercepted or stolen.

Strict RTO/RPO Capabilities

Recovery Point Objective and Recovery Time Objective are measures of loss tolerance. Essentially, how much data are you willing to lose, and how long are you willing to be down, without going out of business?

Once you balance these goals with the cost of your backup solution to determine a threshold, it's our job to beat it. We work with business owners to determine the ideal mix of cost and RPO/RTO, so that you get the coverage you need. Standard Switchfast onsite backups are once an hour, every hour, so that any data loss is minimal and reparable.

Backup/Recovery Management

Disaster recovery requires constant monitoring and the ability to quickly escalate in case of emergency.

Switchfast manages the day-to-day review and maintenance of your recovery systems, which means you never have to worry about overlooking the details.

If an issue arises, Switchfast technicians are ready to tackle problems before they can cause damage to your business.
