Business Continuity Planning
Take the guesswork out of a disaster.
A Total Networx Business Continuity Plan keeps your business running when disaster strikes.
Does Your Business Have A Business Continuity Plan?
Disaster can strike at any time and in most cases with little or no warning. While we may be able to predict certain weather systems or anticipate general problems such as power outages, it is impossible to know WHEN a disaster will strike. To protect your clients and your business in the event of connectivity failure or data loss you must consider all scenarios before disaster strikes. Both managed service providers and the companies they support must have a business continuity plan (BCP) as well as a disaster recovery plan to contain the damage that results from man-made or natural disasters.
Always on. Always Protected.
Unplanned downtime can cause major disruption to your business, from servers going down to employees being unable to work because of a natural disaster.
With a sound business continuity plan in place, these disruptions will be dealt with immediately, keeping your company productive – no matter what.
Why Do a Business Continuity Plan?
Peace of Mind through IT Best Practices.
A Business Continuity Plan helps keep your company up and running during emergencies or disaster situations. It also ensures that your employees can continue working during unplanned downtime and get back to normal as quickly as possible.
• System Failures
• Human Error
• Attacks from malware and viruses

What is Included In a Total Networx Business Continuity Plan?
A Business Continuity Plan from Total Networx provides you with a roadmap to recovery in the event of a major disruption to your business technology. We carefully assess your infrastructure, software, business model, and other mission-critical components of your operation to create a customized BCP for you. A Total Networx BCP includes multiple components.
Our backup and disaster recovery solution takes reliable images of your machine that preserve data, applications, and more as they change over time. Lost data can be restored to the most recent backup in just minutes.
Once your Business Continuity Plan is in place, our comprehensive 24×7 monitoring will detect system failures and mitigation measures will kick in – often before you even know you have an issue.
We provide solutions that support all aspects of your IT environment, including servers, desktops, virtual machines, Exchange servers, and Cloud-based servers.
Total Networx techs are able to mount your backup images as drives so you can see that they work and get file-and-folder recovery at the same time.
We can then quickly replicate your images offsite to keep your data safe, whatever the disaster.
File and Folder Optimization
Using our proprietary solutions, we consolidate your backup images to reduce storage demand.

Regardless Of Your Hardware
A Business Continuity Plan from Total Networx can restore to any machine, whether it’s physical or virtual, regardless of manufacturer or model.
Understand The Need for a Continuity Plan
Many companies are so busy in the here and now they fail to think about the “what ifs” that could be right around the corner. When the sun is shining brightly and everything is working in tip-top form, it is easy to discount the importance of a business continuity plan. Unfortunately, if you wait until you need a plan in place, it’s probably too late.
A business continuity plan will outline the steps your company will take immediately after a disaster takes place. This plan will map out how you will continue operations as well as how you will recover and restore any data that was lost or compromised. Without a plan of action for the minutes, hours and days immediately following a disaster, your business will likely not survive.
Work With A Managed Service Provider
Managed service providers offer many services that are vital to your day-to-day operations. A qualified managed service provider will offer suggestions and advice on how to develop your Business Continuity Plan and explain the services they will provide in the event of a disaster. Getting your business up and running requires the resumption of communications, data, applications, and hardware – much of which can be set in motion by your managed service provider within minutes of your initial downtime.
Develop, test and update your BCP
Once you have identified your immediate needs during and after an emergency you can develop your BCP with the information provided by your managed service provider. Writing a BCP is just the first step. Your entire staff must be prepared for a disaster and trained accordingly. Mandatory training and testing are needed to spot weaknesses in the plan. Once you feel your plan is effective and everyone is prepared for a disaster your BCP should be routinely tested and updated to reflect your current operating systems.
