Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery Solutions

Apex Technology Services offers a variety of comprehensive solutions that ensure your business remains up and running in the face of unexpected disruption. By securely backing up your data directly to the cloud or an on-site hybrid backup system, you ensure minimal downtime.

While some negligent CEOs fail to give BCDR the proper attention it deserves, we’re not worried about you. But if anyone asks, here are four critical reasons that you, the CEO, care about business
continuity and disaster recovery.


If your employees or customers lose access to business-critical applications and data, there will be a direct impact on productivity and revenue. To better understand this cost, consider the following
example using Datto’s RTO calculator.

Let’s say your business has 100 employees, average hourly revenue is $1,500 and the backup data set amounts to 2 TB. Given these parameters, a full restore from a local backup would take over 8 hours. The associated downtime cost would amount to $34,000 in lost revenue.

Some modern BCDR products offer the ability to run applications from backup instances of virtual servers. This allows users to continue operations while primary application servers are restored. Choosing a BCDR solution aimed at reducing downtime makes good business sense.


You’d be hard pressed to find a business today that doesn’t conduct some form of data backup. But, what happens if a flood wipes out your primary and backup servers?
Sending a copy of data offsite for disaster recovery should also be considered essential.

As previously mentioned, modern BCDR products can run applications from backup instances of virtual servers, and some can extend this capability to the cloud. This
approach is frequently called cloud DR or disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS).

The ability to run applications in the cloud while onsite infrastructure is restored is widely considered to be a game changer for disaster recovery.


Not every disaster is broadcasted on news and weather channels. Most IT downtime is a result of common, every day actions like accidental (or intentional) data deletion, damage to computer hardware and poor security habits.

A ransomware attack or virus can halt operations just as easily as a tornado or a power surge. These “lower-case d” disasters are typically a result of human error, which in unpreventable. Having technology in place that allows your business to continue operations following these “hurricane humanity” disasters is equally if not more important than protecting against a hurricane that may or may
not strike your business.


Evaluating your business’ ability to restore IT operations can be a good starting point for company-wide business continuity efforts. Good BCDR planning should look at the business as a whole, and the goal should be to develop business resilience. In fact, many BCDR planning efforts start by conducting a business impact analysis or risk assessment-these studies can reveal weaknesses in your
business’ ability to continue operations that go far beyond IT.
