Manufacturing - Distribution - Service

Manufacturing, distribution and service companies have the widest range of business processes and types of business data to protect - sales, accounting, projects, drawings, stock and purchasing, payroll etc.

With few exceptions today, all data used in these functions is processed and stored on computers, as companies drive towards increasing efficiency and increasing competitiveness.  But a simple hard-disk failure (all disks fail eventually) can crash a key system, preventing invoicing at the end of the month.  A broken system for processing orders can mean lost sales, unhappy customers or in-effective sales teams.  A loss of plans and drawings can have damaging long term implications.

It is for these reasons that the manager of a traditional business values this data and seeks a hassle-free, secure and reliable way of protecting it. They understand that business continuity is vital - manufacturing cannot stop, and projects cannot be delayed.  So, in the event of a disaster - the recovery process must be quick and painless.

Traditional tape based solutions are expensive and messy - and no one is really sure what is being backed up.  It is often down to the office admin or even the general manager / owner to take the tapes home at night.  The process of recovering from tapes is slow and disruptive.

How vulnerable is your data?
Viruses, Hackers and Spyware
Not long ago, computer viruses, hackers and spyware were of interest only to businesses with sensitive data and to IT professionals. Now these items routinely make front page news. Any computer connected to the Internet is exposed to these dangers and the data loss that accompanies them.

Hard Drive and Hardware Failures
Hard drives store more data, are smaller and are cheaper than ever.  But all hard drives will eventually fail.  Hard drives are simply not designed to last forever. Of course, unfortunately, you can never predict when they will fail.
Natural Disasters and Theft
Most of us have insurance to protect our homes from disasters such as fires and floods, hurricanes and earthquakes.  But what's protecting your data?  Anything that can damage your home, can destroy your computer and the information that it stores.   And on top of natural disaster, we live in a world today where terrorism and theft must be considered. 
Human Error
Even if such disasters don't strike and we all hope they don't, we humans aren't perfect either. Most of us have at one point or another accidentally deleted a file or had a file overwritten.
