It’s the worst case scenario; you’re on your way to work when you get a call, alarms are ringing and the office is up in flames. By this time it’s too late, all your documents and files are destroyed and you are back to square one. All the while you can’t help but think; what now? How do we recover from this?
While this situation may seem like a far shot, it CAN happen, it HAS happened. Would this be you? Does your business have a contingency plan in place to react and adapt to the unforeseen?
Whether it is a single internet connection failure or a complete loss of your physical space; from an Information Technologies (IT) standpoint, business continuity planning analyzes your business IT operations to identify vulnerabilities and to implement a contingency plan.
Nucleus business continuity planning takes a comprehensive approach to ensure your business can continue to make money in any event of calamity, on any scale. At Nucleus we understand the importance of adaptability and are able to offer a wide range of services to augment your IT portfolio so you can avoid having all your eggs in one basket.
Internet Failover Solutions – Nucleus can provide a cost effective Internet failover solution that can give you the uptime your business needs. By implementing a 3G+ mobile connect card in conjunction with a mobile broadband Cradlepoint router, you can achieve consistent uptime without having to break the bank.
Redundant and Bonded Connectivity – By bonding multiple, non-like internet gateways such as ADSL and cable modems into one solution, you are not only getting the added speeds but also the redundancy should a connection fail. Maximize your investment, reduce downtime and increase productivity.
Offsite Backup – By complementing your business DSL service with a Nucleus offsite backup solution you can duplicate all your secure documents and files on a managed and dedicated storage device. Backup storage devices are available in single and dual drive configurations and can be accessed anytime via password protected FTP or File Share. With this service you can ensure that your mission critical documents and files are stored offsite in case of emergency retrieval.
Server Co-Location – Nucleus can provide your business with a cost effective solution to get your server on a dedicated fibre uplink. Our co-location services come with connectivity uptime guarantees and the peace of mind in knowing that your server is consistently online, allowing you to concentrate on your business.
RBL Monitoring – This service enables you to monitor your IP addresses against the most popular and commonly used DNS blacklists. Subscription to this service will ensure that you are notified when and where you are blacklisted. The Nucleus RBL monitoring will send an email notification when any of your IP addresses are found in the list of monitored DNSBLs.
DNS management – Nucleus Simple Failover (DNS) ensures that if your primary server is ever unavailable, your users are automatically directed to a backup server or connection.
The concept is quite simple; Nucleus Failover continuously monitors your servers to find out which are up and which are down, and then it dynamically updates your DNS records accordingly so that your domain name always points to a functional server - ensuring you are still able to keep clients informed and able to utilize that site or service to continue making money yourself.
