Business Continuity

Business continuity is the activity performed by an organisation to ensure that critical business functions will be available to customers, suppliers and others that must have access to those functions. These activities include many daily chores such as project management, system backups, change control, and help desk.

Business Continuity is not something implemented at the time of a disaster; Business Continuity refers to those activities performed daily to maintain service, consistency, and recoverability.”

The case for Business Continuity is something that most organisations are now considering, especially those that live on volume time-critical transactions, where the loss of a service will seriously impact on a company’s profitability.  With the increased reliance on email as a mechanism to conduct business, the availability of products such as Microsoft Exchange has become a serious concern.

There are, as you would expect, a range of products which offer such facilities from the likes of Neverfail and Double-Take.  However, with the increasing take up of Virtualisation, it has become much easier to develop mechanisms to keep the services alive, with little to no impact on operations using products from the likes of Veeam.
