Eco-Friendly Disaster Recovery Strategy Relies On Digital Storage

Guidance Consulting : 11 August, 2010  (New Product)
Guidance Consulting is offering a disaster recovery package that assists companies in achieving green credentials through the migration away from large storage systems, tape based back-up and paper archives
Georgia-based IT technology firm Guidance Consulting is offering a new line of services meant to help companies interested in taking a more eco-friendly approach to business and technology. Among the more prominent features is a Disaster Recovery Planning package that covers both existing frameworks as well as changes that may occur within a business over the next one, five, or even ten years.

Guidance Consulting has always offered a range of IT disaster prevention and recovery plans. Geared toward both large and small businesses, the primary goal has been to create a contingency plan for recovering data and getting systems back up and running in the face of a loss of power, hardware, data archives, or any other vital IT component.

The new Disaster Planning Recovery package is meant to enhance these services by looking beyond a company's existing framework to include changes that align with a more eco-friendly approach to doing business.

"Disaster recovery planning, by its very nature, is about looking ahead to the future to anticipate trends and potential hazards," says Guidance Consulting senior consultant Ronald Gottilla. "Because so much of our ecological future has to do with the same things, it's only natural that disaster recovery and green technology go hand-in-hand."

One of the biggest steps Guidance Consulting and other data storage/recovery organizations are taking is in digital storage technology. Industry leaders like JPMorgan Chase Bank and Kodak have already partnered up to provide a comprehensive digital archive service that keeps critical information both secure and easily accessible.

"When companies begin relying more heavily on digital storage, it provides both an option for greater savings and for increased security," says Gottilla. "Here at Guidance Consulting, we've taken the idea one step further. In addition to document archiving, we can create entire disaster recovery plans that reduce paper storage, tape storage, and too heavy of a reliance on bulky, inefficient hardware."

In addition to simply assessing a company's current data risks, Guidance Consulting can also anticipate the types of data recovery services the company will need in the future. This prevents a continual need for updating and patching the system, which can decrease a company's productivity overall.

"Every time a company upgrades a system or make changes to the way they store data, there is a time and resource investment involved," warns Gottilla. "There's the down time as the system is upgraded, a training component to make sure all employees are able to comply with the new regulations, and occasional monitoring to ensure that things are running like they're meant to."

By offering more comprehensive Disaster Recovery Plan in the first place - one that looks to the future - Gottilla and his team can reduce a company's time investment, financial investment, and dependence on wasteful resources.
