Alonso Consulting can analyze your disaster risks and
provide you with a planned response to the risks. In addition
to this analysis and documentation, we can help you implement
a plan that makes sense for your company based on needs
and budget constraints. There are many types of disasters.
The 2005 flooding in New Orleans is just one example.
Other potential threats are: power outages, software errors,
virus attacks, hacker attacks, fires, earthquakes, hurricanes,
tornadoes, theft, and even terrorism. With these types
of threats, and the many others that are present in the
current business environment, it does not make sense not
to evaluate your risk factors and to have a plan for keeping
your data safe, your applications available and even having
an off-site office location. Your business continuity
depends on it.
Alonso Consulting has analyzed the IT infrastructure
of several companies. Our reports and analysis have
been used as due diligence by venture capital firms
evaluating whether to acquire firms. These analytical
skills will be applied to your business to discover
what the business continuity weaknesses are and to provide
recommendations as to how to address them within your
Off-site Backup and Tape Storage
In addition to pure analysis and reporting, we have
also implemented disaster recovery plans for many of
our clients. We have set up several small clients with
disk space on our servers. The process involves executing
a comprehensive on-site backup of their data and then
nightly backups of their changed data to our servers
using the Internet. Although this is a simple method
of ensuring that data is safe, it has proved effective
several times. Clients have called and asked for specific
files that they have inadvertently corrupted. We have
e-mailed the file or provided the clients with a means
of downloading the files through an SSL (secure) connection.
These requests have been typically fulfilled within
Another inexpensive method of ensuring business continuity
is to store backup tapes at an off-site location. Alonso
Consulting provides this service to several clients.
Alonso Consulting picks up the tapes and stores them
at our headquarters location in Fairfield, NJ. Or our
office in Las Vegas, NV.
Alonso Consulting also provides off-site server hosting
for disaster recovery. This type of service makes it
possible to have the same brand of server that you have
at your office, the same configuration, same applications
and to also have a duplicate of your data on it. This
provides a very safe environment for your business.
You can move that server to a new location within hours
in an emergency. You can also control the server remotely
and keep your own passwords to it. We make sure that
the environment that hosts the server is physically
safe, under video surveillance, and that technical support
is available when you need it. We also provide high
speed and reliable Internet connectivity. Several mid-size
clients have selected this as their ideal disaster recovery
Short Term Office Space
In addition to planning, guidance, data, and server
hosting, Alonso Consulting can execute a contract with
your company for short term office space. Our facility
is large enough that it can accommodate key staff during
an emergency. We can provide you with desks, phones,
computers, and connectivity to the off-site server that
you have hosted at our location for up to a month.
You can use Alonso Consulting even if you would like
to pursue other types of disaster recovery plans. We
have clients that have set up machines in their homes
as an inexpensive way of securing their business data
against potential threats. Since we are external to
your organization, we can provide an objective view
of your needs and can provide you with a report of our
findings. You can then decide what you will do with
these findings. Alonso Consulting can also provide you
with on site technical staff to help you implement some
other custom plan that you have elected to execute.
Please do not hesitate to contact us for all your disaster
recovery needs. We have the experience and references
to prove it. You will be 100% satisfied with our service.
