Disaster Recovery Planning: Blueprint for Fast Recovery
For managed services clients, Leapfrog can help you build a Disaster Recovery Plan (DRP) that meets your unique Recovery Time Objective (RTO) and Recovery Point Objective (RPO) requirements and finds the right balance between DR protection and insurance coverage. To do this, we translate everything we learn about your business into a detailed plan. We discuss your budget, priorities, and business continuity approach. We review your data retention policy, software, warranties, compliance issues, and reliability and capacity issues. Plus, we analyze your network, systems, physical assets, and backup process.
- RTO and RPO assessments
- Advice about what to protect and what to insure
- Comprehensive planning for a variety of scenarios, including network failure, natural disasters, sabotage, and extended power outages
- A written, comprehensive, executable plan
- DRP tests
- Updated recommendations as technologies and your organization evolve
Testing, writing, and training
The best way for your company to recover from an IT disaster is to practice recovering. Leapfrog offers routine DR tests to make sure your DRP works as expected. The results from the initial test allow us to refine any areas that need improving and then test your plan again. Once your plan passes our final test, we write up your DRP in language anyone can understand (no jargon) and offer advice on how to train your staff to execute it. Leapfrog can also execute your DRP for you.
Developing your DRP doesn’t have to be overly burdensome or expensive. We’ve written countless plans — yours will be tailored to your exact needs.
