  3. We back up and archive monthly project files from our local hard drive to DVD, chances are we have at least one copy of ANY project we've worked on since 1996.

  5. We use a dedicated hosting server on BOTH the east and west coast to instantly transfer your account in case of a natural disaster.
  6. We have an unlimited amount of cloud space available to keep a copy of your most current files stored in the cloud available at all times.

Real World Situation

Since we opened our doors, we have been backing up our files redundantly. Here is an example of a recent REAL WORLD situation that happened to a client.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 




We received a new sports client in 2012 that wanted us to do some SEO/Marketing/Submission work. Since we had not created the current version of his website, we were only responsible for the work that we were hired to do. This client had some custom "asp" programming with a unique "login" feature.

Recently, one of the "asp" files got corrupted which made the login feature not work. I advised the client to ask his hosting company to just restore the files to the server from the previous 72 hours. I was shocked when this "reputable hosting company" could not assist their hosting client.

I remember when I first sign this client up for SEO work, the first thing I did was backup and archive his server content "just in case". Well, I had to look through about 60 disks, but I found the disk with the first backup I did for this client, transfered the original files to this clients server and he was extremely happy that we did not have to "completely rebuild" his system.

He did mentioned that his system was over 10 years old and will eventually rebuild it, but he doesn't have to do it NOW. I estimate that WE SAVED HIM ABOUT $1,000.

Our disaster recovery services helped this client keep his system running.

History Of Disaster Recovery

Disaster recovery as a concept developed in the mid- to late 1970s as computer center managers began to recognize the dependence of their organizations on their computer systems. At that time most systems were batch-oriented mainframes which in many cases could be down for a number of days before significant damage would be done to the organization.

As awareness of disaster recovery grew, an industry developed to provide backup computer centers, with Sun Information Systems (which later became Sungard Availability Systems) becoming the first major US commercial hot site vendor, established in 1978 in Philadelphia.

During the 1980s and 1990s, IT disaster recovery awareness and the disaster recovery industry grew rapidly, driven by the advent of open systems and real-time processing (which increased the dependence of organizations on their IT systems). Another driving force in the growth of the industry was increasing government regulations mandating business continuity and disaster recovery plans for organizations in various sectors of the economy.

With the rapid growth of the Internet through the late 1990s and into the 2000s, organizations of all sizes became further dependent on the continuous availability of their IT systems, with many organizations setting an objective of 99.999% availability of critical systems.

This increasing dependence on IT systems, as well as increased awareness from large-scale disasters such as 9/11, contributed to the further growth of various disaster recovery related industries, from high-availability solutions to hot-site facilities.

No, we are professional designers and have no need to use these tools. These are great for some clients that have some computer or web skills, but can be very time consuming.
