Disaster Recovery & Business Continuity

– Are you protected?

How many of us know for sure that our backup is really working and that we can recover from a disk or server failure in the event of an unforeseen disaster?

We are all guilty of too commonly assuming that our backups are good and that if our server disk was to fail or the server to break down, that our backup is in a recoverable state to recover from.

Imagine coming into the office on a busy Friday with settlements to deal with or having a critical court schedule and you can't get to your documents... as the server died the night before! This has been the experience of many unfortunates and I can assure you, it will only ever happen once!

We assume that our IT support (if we have any) are looking after these things and that they will sort us out in the worst case scenario. Whilst this may be true, they can only do this if you have reliable, fully restorable backups and even then, can't guarantee that there won't be data loss.

You need to be sure that your backups are regularly checked (1) to ensure that they are running successfully and (2) that in the event of a failure, information can be successfully recovered from the tapes / disk.

In any event, it can take days to rebuild a server or recover from a failure and this downtime can be enormously frustrating and in some cases, where recovery isn't possible, absolutely fatal for the business.

It is best practise to perform a recovery test every quarter to "simulate" a failure and even restore your information to a "recovery server" to demonstrate that your restore procedure works, is valid and tested.

For those who don't have this facility available then there is an element of risk that will only become apparent probably when it is too late.

LawWare has introduced a new service that can help ensure that the worst never happens. Through a new service that we have introduce called LawSecure for Enterprise we have designed a robust plan to help protect your server data and give you Zero downtime in the event of a major disaster, something which very few providers can offer.

  • Managed Daily Backup - The service revolves around a managed data backup that we setup for you by installing an agent on your server to backup your critical data files to our secure, proven & robust, UK based LawCloud data servers.
  • Disaster Recovery Plan - Overnight, we will restore your data daily into a fully operational LawWare system on LawCloud, testing and ensuring that the backup is fully restorable and that your data is safely recoverable.
  • Remote Access Capability - We will then give you access to the snapshot of your data on the Cloud via a LawCloud login. This facility means that you can access your data from anywhere with a secured internet connection such as home, branch office, court etc...) offering mobility, flexibility and peace of mind. You can access the data via a PC / laptop / iPad / Apply Mac etc...

If you are already a LawCloud user then you are automatically protected by this cover.

This service is aimed at LawWare Enterprise users who would benefit from peace of mind that their backups are taken care of and that there is a tested recovery process daily, also for those who would benefit from remote access to a snapshot of this data for mobility.

If you are not currently a LawWare or LawCloud user, and do not currently enjoy this level of cover, then please contact us to find out more about our low cost competitor upgrade options.
