DR and BC

DR and BC stands for Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity which is becoming an important service for many organizations.

Most companies have a disaster recovery (DR) plan in place to protect their infrastructure systems and business data. This is an essential component of growing a successful business. However, business continuity (BC) does not corresponds to "one-size-fits-all" because each type and kind of business has different recovery needs. Here is why IBSCY offers several managed disaster recovery services in Cyprus for businesses of all sizes. IBSCY Ltd is providing full disaster recovery and business continuity services in Cyprus and internationally, for any size of organization and any business application.

There are two solutions available for disaster recovery:

  • Host based replication services: This is a low cost and low performance solution. Using this solution, you replicate critical files or applications between your data centre and IBS data centre using physical and/or virtualized environment.
  • Enterprise replication services: This is a higher cost and higher performance solution since all your infrastructure is spread through our data centers (Cyprus, US, Germany, Holland) using high availability equipment such as NAS and/or SAN storage powered by NetApp.

Disaster Recovery

It is the procedures, processes, and policies related to the actions that will be completed before, during and after a natural or human-induced disaster. When a disaster occurs, an organization needs to be prepared for the recovery of technology infrastructure which is vital to the organization. Disaster recovery focuses on the IT or technology systems that support business functions.

Business Continuity

Business continuity is the activity performed by an organization to make sure that critical business functions will be available 365 days per year 24 hours per day. Business continuity is not something implemented at the time of a disaster but is implemented on a daily basis to maintain service, consistency, and recoverability. In general terms, business continuity is the standards, program development, supporting policies, guidelines, and procedures needed to ensure that a company will continue without stoppage, irrespective of adverse circumstances or events.
