Avoid loss of service and minimise failures and downtime with Covenco365’s High Availability Service.
In today’s digital and always-on culture, businesses need to continue to operate 24/7/365. When downtime is not an option and your Recovery Time Objective (RTO) is measured in MINUTES, you need to take a serious look at a serious solution, ‘High Availability’.
High Availability (HA) refers to systems and solutions that are durable and which are likely to operate continuously, without failure for a long time. The term implies that a system has accommodations for failure in the form of redundant components and can recover from software or hardware failure automatically. The more transparent that failover is to users, the higher the availability of the system.
Apart from guaranteeing continuous uptime, HA solutions also come with the following benefits:
Improve your business reliability
If an IT system failure prevents you from being able to provide your product or service to your customers, then they may perceive you as an unreliable supplier. This could damage your reputation and may lose you clients. By making sure that your business is always operative, you can ensure your customers see you as reliable and stand out from your competitors.
It’s good for revenues
Keeping operations running means keeping sales ticking over. By employing a High Availability solution your IT systems are always available and you will not even have to think about any potential disruption. Your only focus can be selling your product/service and working to reach your business objectives.
Reduced customer and production impact during planned maintenance
In many cases, you can completely avoid service disruption during planned maintenance. With a High Availability solution, your IT team can potentially take down and work in one part of your system while ‘Production’ continues to function.
Reduced risk of data loss
A High Availability solution reduces the possibility of system crashes due to component failure to almost zero and hence reduces the potential for data loss in this type of situation to almost zero.
I would recommend Covenco for excellent customer support, extensive knowledge, and experience with business continuity solutions, as well as cloud-based backup and recovery services.
We think of Covenco as an extension of our own IT department. We work closely together regarding IT security aspects, disaster recovery and business continuity side of the business. They are always there to discuss future developments and plans to improve Mizuno’s IT systems and that helps us to concentrate keeping our own business operations running smoothly.
We have used Covenco for many years now. Part of the reason why we keep renewing with them is the customer focused relationship which Covenco have. For Disaster Recovery, testing is key to ensure you have a viable platform. I have always found the team at Covenco to be very helpful and flexible during our test days. In addition, the support we get from the team for our backup software installation is excellent, with rapid responses.
