Disaster Recovery

Are you confident you could recover your IT systems in the event of a ‘disaster’?

A disaster contingency plan is a chain of events that are followed if your business suffers a disruption. This could be a virus, security breach or data corruption. The outcome of which is that your business and IT system are up and running again in the shortest time possible.

It is vital that you have a Disaster contingency plan for your business. The effect on your finances and your reputation can damage your business to the point of no return.

The London Chamber of Commerce have reported that 90% of businesses that lose data from a disaster are forced to shut down within 2 years of the event. 50% of business that are exposed to a computer outage will be forced to shut down within 5 years.

With more and more businesses operating online the consequences of not having an adequate disaster recovery plan can be catastrophic.


Pentangle offer a disaster recovery plan package that includes:

  • Recreation of your entire server within a couple of hours from a major disaster
  • A loan server driven to site, containing all the customer’s data in the event of a disaster
  • Recovery of individual files or entire directories or drives
  • Customer-provided backup solutions
  • Full disaster-recovery testing of the customer’s entire backed up server suite on a regular basis
  • Whatever is needed to help recover your servers during a disaster


Please be aware however that our DR plan depends on:

  • Your server(s) being virtualised with VMware
  • The copies of VMware on those servers being licensed (with a paid license rather than using the free license)

In the event that your company internet connection is not fast enough to run a timely recovery Pentangle will restore servers off-site before bringing them to you.

Prevention is better than cure.

We store your data on our servers that are held off site in a secure location and require stringent security checks to access them.


If you would like to discuss your existing DR plan or feel you need one! Please give us a call and we can talk you thorough it.
