Fun fact: In 1980, IBM would happily sell you a 1gig hard drive… for $40,000.
When it comes to technology, there’s much that can go wrong. Cyber attacks, natural disasters, power outages, even simple human error, all have the potential to devastate your technology. One minute, you’re operating in high gear. The next, “Poof!” All your data is gone! This sounds dramatic, but it happens. And if you don’t have a backup plan, it’s a painful experience.
A catastrophic data loss has serious consequences to not only finances, but also to reputations, and internal operations. Making sure your data is safe and that you can get quickly back on track following a catastrophic loss is crucial.
Backing up used to be as easy as plugging a disk into a server and letting it roll. Now, however, data collection and control takes place on a much greater scale, including cloud-based services and off-site data centers. Backup management is all about the development of a data backup process, followed by the implementation and daily maintenance of that process. At JMARK, we make sure all server infrastructure, as well as all private, public, and hybrid cloud data is backed up. We also ensure that there are disaster recovery processes in place for any data loss.
Due to the sensitive nature of customer and client data, as well as the need to ensure continuous access to that information in case of data loss, a highly secure, well-planned, consistently executed backup strategy is more important than ever. JMARK will help you develop a backup plan that follows these guidelines:
Policies. It is important to ensure that key employees understand and can be held accountable to the backup system you have put in place. Your backup plan is only ever as strong as the care with which it is implemented.

Timely and secure backup of your data is only part the equation when it comes to backup management. The other parts? Recovery and reinstallation of your systems and equipment, and continuity of services for clients and essential personnel.
When a disaster occurs, it is essential to have a complete strategy for getting your business up and running again in the shortest amount of time possible. Minimal downtime not only helps mitigate expenses and financial loss, but also keeps trust in your institution from eroding.
The JMARK team of experts knows how to think through every detail of the recovery process. We work with you to create a custom plan specifically for your organization. We’re even prepared to provide mobile operation centers during major disasters.
Business continuity is becoming more and more critical in today’s globalized, 24-7 marketplace. While recovery puts your systems back in place, continuity ensures that your clients and customers never lose access to services they expect to be available whenever (and wherever) they want them.
Adding complexity to the implementation of a continuity plan, if you are in a highly regulated industry, traditional backup methods (such as tape, disk, or online only) are often no longer deemed sufficient by regulators. In fact, leading edge companies are also finding these older methods unacceptable, due to their inability to recover data quickly and mitigate downtime. Technological innovations have established a comprehensive new standard: Intelligent Business Continuity (IBC). Only an IBC solution will ensure data protection, security, and instant recovery; as well as mitigate downtime and ensure continuity. JMARK has dedicated teams that specialize in Intelligent Business Continuity, ready to help you implement a plan that will ensure that your technology and services remain reliable.
The whole team at JMark is wonderful!! Our business could not function properly on a daily basis without their ongoing support and expert I.T. advice/guidance. We are incredibly thankful that they are one of our business partners.
