In a world where organisations are dependent on IT and Business Continuity, it is essential that you have reliable back-up plans in place to ensure the highest standards of risk management.
Off-site services to support Business Continuity and data backup are increasingly commonplace - especially where organisations seek to minimise investment in redundant hardware/software, remote computer rooms and personnel.
An inherent challenge of remote Business Continuity facilities is that they are highly dependent on communication networks. Therefore if there is a single point of failure, remote data will be unobtainable because links are down.
Viability of services is further damaged because data is typically backed up or accessed over a single high-speed Internet access connection that is often shared between various office applications such as browsing, mail, FTP and document sharing. As a result, backup and restore times cannot be accurately predicted as they are restricted by the bandwidth available across the shared Internet connection.
With an Airfibre connection (provided independently of the Eircom local loop), you can connect your building directly to any data centre or provider. When used as a dedicated service, backup and restore times are predictable and dependable, impervious to downtime and resilient.
An Airfibre connection is often also used to provide high-speed Internet connectivity, which in the event of a primary provider being affected by a local or central Eircom outage, provides emergency fall back to ensure continuity of service.
If you are unfortunate enough to suffer extended circuit loss and do not have a contingency plan in place, Airfibre will assist you in resolving problems by utilising its unique capability to install high-speed wireless circuits within five days.
