Executive Summary

Forty three percent of businesses which have lost computer records shut shop. Fifty percent shut shop within two years of data loss and the remaining six percent alone survive the long run. Loosing data could mean loosing emails, legal records, customer databases, and, even orders. What is needed is a Business Continuity Plan - a strategy that is grounded in a sophisticated recovery and data backup solution. The paper cites the example of Small and Medium Businesses and discusses how these, unlike larger enterprises, may be unable to afford such strategies and solutions. It evaluates the scope of Business Continuity Planning for smaller companies. This is done by understanding their challenges, solutions that exist in the market, and gaps in current offerings. The paper introduces Incremental Forever technology as the most comprehensive solution and discusses how this meets the requirement and overcomes challenges. To support its recommendation, the paper discusses the risks of not having a Business Continuity Plan - both from an operational and technical perspective - and compares traditional solutions with emerging technology. It also offers a detailed discussion on the characteristics of Incremental Forever Technology such as real-time backups, on-site virtual servers, flexible and intuitive restoration, bandwidth throttling transfer and affordability. The paper emphasizes on Incremental Forever being a complete solution designed to drastically reduce recovery and server down time.
