  5. 5. Facts to consider when selecting a disaster recovery solution:o A viable BDR solution should cover all the computing platforms being utilized.o The solution should provide protection for all data, whether that data resides on a servers, laptops or desktop computers.o Off-site and on-site backups should occur at regular intervalso Backups should occur rapidly and seamlessly to avoid interfering with server performance while the backup process is being executed.o For best results, off-site backup should be provided at a hardened, secure data center, with a high level of physical security and internet and power redundancy.o Data should be secure on-site as well as off-site by using a high level of encryption.o The Backup and Disaster Recovery solution should restore server images to dissimilar hardware. This is essential, as it prevents VARs from being limited by the type of new server that will be installedo It’s important to know the recovery time frame following a server crash or catastrophe. The procedure for rebounding after the latter two disasters must not be complex, but rather, comprised of a few simple, straight-forward steps.o Ensure that there are no hidden fees — the cost to maintain and manage the solution on a weekly, monthly, and annual basis — plus any labor expenditures — should be taken into consideration before signing a deal.o Are you being provided with coverage 24 hours per day, 365 days per year?
