More than 90% small
businesses (and many midsize businesses) around the globe only have one Server in their office, and
all business data is stored on this Server. Most of the critical business software applications
have provision for either manual
backup , or scheduled
backup , which is performed daily/weekly. The backup of
critical applications is done on an external device such as a USB flash
memory drive, a hard drive, a tape drive, or another computer.
Non-critical documents such as Microsoft Word, excel, Word
Perfect, emails, PDF files, scanned images & pictures etc. (referred as
unstructured information in
the industry) are left up to the individual users for backup. And users are
all human…! They forget to backup regularly...
or most of the time are too busy to
find time for boring manual backup process.
Risk of a
Single Server… the Single-Point-Failure!
If you have only one Server in your office, it is the Single-Point-Failure for your business. And most business owners/managers are not
even aware of this hidden risk . When your
Server is up, everything is fine and your office is running smoothly. But
if your Server
crashes , it can spell a disaster . Since the Server controls the operation of your LAN (Local
Area Network), your network stops functioning. Your employees are unable to
do any work. There is panic in the office and it
becomes an emergency
. You call your network technician, who
may not be available to come immediately. The panic and emergency remains
in effect until the Server is fixed, or replaced. Your losses can be serious depending on the
type of your business.
Manual and Scheduled Data Backup
If your Server crashes and you are lucky, the data on
the Server can be recovered. If not, and you have to restore the data from
previous day's backup, you lose entire day's data which
you may never be able to re-create again. You may estimate the losses to your business yourself!
Risk of not Storing
In case of natural or man-made disasters such as fire, flood, lightning, Theft etc., along with other assets, you would also lose your most
valuable asset forever
– your business data . Under such circumstances, most of the organizations will go
You provide protection for your other assets… your office
building, house, car, jewelry…! Don't you think… you need SOLID data protection for your organization?
IT Solutions provide the PROTECTION for your business
with Redundant Servers and Real-Time Auto Backup software!
If you have only one
Sever in your office, MDEC technicians will install a
second Server and setup your network for Dual-Redundant configuration. In this
configuration, both Servers control the functioning of your network
assuming the rolls of Domain Controllers, DNS Servers, WINS Servers etc. If
one Server fails, the other Server continues to control the network
operation providing business
continuity for your office.
Our Real Time auto
(RTB software) is installed on both the Servers. The RTB software
continuously backs up data from the Primary Server to the Secondary Server
as soon as data is entered by the users in your office. In case of a Server
failure, the other functioning Server has all the data.
This fail-safe solution provides real-time data protection and business continuity for your
ON Site + Remote Fail-Safe Solution
The On Site+Remote fail-safe solution has additional
capabilities to connect to a Remote Server, and our RTB software backs up real-time data on the secondary
Server as well as on the remote Server simultaneously. The remote Server
may be located in your other office (not in the same building), or in MDEC Data Center . This
configuration provides the ultimate
protection from big disasters
that would destroy the office building, campus or even the
Katrina Hurricane in New Orleans ( USA )? More than 6000 medical
practices and thousands of other organizations went out-of-business . With
remote data storage, they could have re-built their businesses.
