Disaster Recovery Services

A fire rages, a pipe gushes or sometimes there is just no electricity. What happens to your business when the office suddenly becomes unfit to work in? Do your employees still have access to their files? Email? Phone calls? Would it cripple business activities if employees were abruptly required to work from home?

The London Chamber of Commerce and Industry undertook disaster recovery research and confirmed the below list of serious implications that businesses would face without a robust and regularly tested recovery plan:

  1. 90% of businesses that lose data from a disaster are forced to close within 2 years;
  2. 80% of businesses without a well-structured recovery plan are forced to shut down within 12 months of a floor or fire;
  3. 43% of companies experiencing disasters will never recover;
  4.  50% of companies experiencing a computer outage will be forced to shut down within 5
    years;
  5. Less than 50% of all organisations in the UK have a business continuity plan;
  6. 80% of companies have not developed crisis management to provide IT coverage to
    support business continuity to keep the business functioning effectively.

A comprehensive disaster recovery plan
to protect your operations, your data and your business

IT is the world’s greatest enabler. For businesses, technology empowers operations and has become every bit as crucial as electricity and office space. But that presents a huge risk. When a disaster like flood or fire strikes, your entire business can grind to a halt – with severe implications for your reputation and your bank balance.

Consider IT’s disaster recovery services minimise your risk with one simple goal: giving you business continuity, even in the most unexpected circumstances. With a full clone of your infrastructure as well as access to a high-quality Disaster Recovery Suite, you’ll always have the technology, connectivity and physical space you need to do business.

Disaster Recovery Suite

We have desks, meeting rooms in a beautiful suite, overlooking the Water of Leith . The entire floor is dedicated to your use. Glass windowed meeting rooms within your temporary office – if that doesn’t take your fancy there are many worthwhile coffee shops and restaurants within a minute or two walk.

Your team will be welcomed with bacon rolls and coffee – ongoing freshly ground beans guaranteed. Our onsite staff will assist staff with any queries about getting straight back to tending to your business.


Structured disaster recovery that minimises disruption and downtime

When disaster strikes, time is of the essence. Working with Consider IT, you’ll get a structured plan for what to do in those crucial first hours – and a way to get back to business sooner.

1. Let us handle the crisis

When you call or raise a ticket, we’ll immediately set your plan in motion. We’ll inform your teams via SMS, email and phone, assigning non-critical staff to work from home and telling your key team members head to the Consider IT offices.

2. Fast setup

Staff working from home receive instructions on logging into their virtual terminal and receive regular updates. Staff that arrive at our Disaster Recovery suite are given key-fobs, kitchen access and full instructions on accessing your data and systems. Meanwhile, WiFi just works – with the same login details as your office, tablets and mobiles connect automatically.

3. Phone re-routing

If you use our VoIP services, phones will be on our disaster recovery desks and ready to use. With instant re-routing, you’ll start receiving inbound calls from your customers at your usual number, while employees can make outbound calls from the same line.
