Our Alternate Site Solution offers a combination of computer systems, telecommunications and dedicated infrastructure services that enable organisations to avoid downtime of their mission critical applications in any “event” planned and unplanned. BIC provides backup servers, alternate workspace, telecommunications capabilities and IT resources needed to reconnect your people to your critical business information upon service outage.
Backup recovery servers are pre-staged with network connectivity pre-provisioned. They are ready to be loaded with your applications and data upon your request, either for planned maintenance or in the event of a disaster. Your configuration will be defined in your IT Business Continuity Plan and tested annually.
Re-locate critical personnel to fully enabled “Hot Seats” at the BIC site in the event that your primary site is non-operational. Phones and fax connectivity are pre-established and tested as part of your IT Business Continuity Plan.
For staff who have not relocated to a BIC Hot Seat there are many options for connectivity to your recovery servers such as web browsers, secure VPN, Citrix Services and Terminal Services. These remote connectivity options give you the flexibility to access your backup servers from wherever your staff may relocate to during your recovery period. Your configuration will be defined in your IT Business Continuity Plan and tested annually.
