How long could your business cope for if you lost your business critical data?

What if you had an unforeseen technical problem or human error led to the loss of vital information?

How quickly could your systems be recovered in the event of a disaster?

If your answer to any of the above questions is “no” or you’re “not sure”, please read on or give us a call to discuss your options.

So, does your business need a disaster recovery solution in place? The answer is yes. Whether you’ve had an unforeseen technical problem, human error has led to the loss of critical data or if a natural disaster strikes and leaves you in the dark and unable to operate, having a recovery solution in place will help minimise downtime and allow you to continue to operate, business as usual.

What solution should I use?

With so many options for disaster recovery and business continuity solutions, organisations are seeking a single, simple solution to the issue. Datto from Complete I.T. provides exactly that, delivering both onsite and (or) offsite backup, disaster recovery and business continuity.

Datto will replicate your IT infrastructure safely and securely onsite and to the cloud. In the event of a major outage or disaster, you can either restore or reboot quickly from this local image, or even use the image in the cloud to continue to operate from other hardware while your infrastructure is reestablished.

Datto is a full backup, disaster recovery and business continuity service and if rapid recovery of your systems is a priority, then Datto will provide a single, simple solution.



Most organisations now have key data saved on multiple devices (servers, desktops, laptops etc.) but organisations are often unsure if all of this data is being backed up. Online Backup offers a flexible option for the encrypted transfer and storage of key data in a secure, offsite facility. With an online backup strategy, automatic or regular backups are created for every device to minimise downtime, allow easy recovery, and ensure that important data is not lost in the event of a disaster.


Tape is still used by thousands of organisations in the UK to produce regular data backups, and we have implemented hundreds of solutions from single tapes to sophisticated auto-loading systems, often using Backup Exec Suite from Veritas, an industry-leading, robust and proven solution. Unfortunately, backing-up data to tape is only half the story. Problems can occur when incomplete data is written to them, or when tapes are over-used or worn. Our Data Recovery & Testing service builds a replica server environment to check your backup process and ensure that all essential data is available if needed.


We will guide you through the process of assessing the risks, and identifying the most appropriate solution for you.

We have experience in designing and implementing solutions from simple backups to full business continuity services, making sure that our recommendations find the correct balance for your business between resilience and cost.
