Why Businesses Today Need Disaster Recovery

“If you think your business can’t resist the disaster,
then it’s right time to plan for Disaster Recovery Plan before it’s too late”

What is Disaster Recovery?

With digital transformation leading the workforce of today, the marketplace has seen tremendous growth and, businesses are increasingly becoming data-driven. In such a technology-powered landscape, the IT infrastructure has proven to be the backbone for any company. Disaster recovery is an organization’s method of regaining access and functionality to its IT infrastructure after events like a natural disaster, cyber-attack, or any sort of business disruption.

Why does a business need to focus on Disaster Recovery?

Digitization has not just opened new opportunities for businesses but also has brought new threats. Cyber threats like ransomware, human errors, hardware failure are some possible threats that might lead to huge data loss, business interruptions, loss in revenue, etc.

To minimize these risks and help organizations continue their business operations in any sort of disruptions, Disaster Recovery Services has a significant role to play.

The myth about Disaster Recover in Nepal

Most companies in Nepal are still reluctant to fully moving to the cloud. Numerous restrictions regarding data and security concerns set forth by the government are not helping either. The major challenge is that businesses still prefer manual administrative methods and paperwork over building a strong IT infrastructure. Many also seem to think that cloud adoption entails massive investment that their budget can barely handle. However, it is a good sign that businesses today have slowly begun placing greater emphasis on being able to react and recover quickly in the event of unexpected disruption.

This myth needs gradual debunking. Big corporate firms of Nepal have already understood the importance of disaster recovery plans and considered DR as a part of IT infrastructure with the help of cloud providers such as Agile Solutions. Agile Solutions Pvt. Ltd. understands clients’ business requirements, and with their strong team of seasoned consultants, offers detailed risk analysis to design cost-effective DR infrastructure for your organization.
