If your computers were down for a day, what would it cost? If they were down for several days, would your business ever truly recover?
Disaster recovery consultants from Silverado can help ensure that customers don’t hear, “I’m sorry, but our computers are down.” Say that once and they may call you back. Say that twice and customers are sure to look for someone they deem more reliable.
Silverado understands that every computer system outage is a potential disaster for your business, and has a range of cost effective solutions for businesses large and small. Knowledge like this is why so many companies are outsourcing disaster recovery concerns to Silverado, and why we’ve extended our definition of “disaster” to include any occurrence, large or small, isolated or widespread, that disrupts your information technology solutions.
And Silverado is ready with proactive remote disaster recovery solutions that can help you avoid most interruptions, and recover quickly from those that just can’t be prevented. Outsourcing disaster recovery responsibilities to Silverado solutions can help you:
- Avoid routine outages
- Recover rapidly from disasters
- Reduce the cost of disaster recovery
- Automate disaster recovery
Assess your Disaster Risks
These days it seems like everyone in the IT business calls themselves disaster recovery consultants–but do they actually offer anything new for your business? You probably know already if your business is located on a flood plain, in a seismic zone, or in a location that’s prone to fire and theft.
But it takes qualified disaster recovery consultants to help you identify and prepare for dangers that might be less obvious, but that threaten equally devastating business risks. For example:
- Changing weather patterns are bringing severe snow, ice, and windstorms to more locations, more frequently.
- Terrorism, though infrequent, has the ability to interrupt business on a regional or even national scale.
- If you do business internationally, you are aware that economic instability has led to civil disorder in foreign business centers.
- Workplace crime has the potential to disrupt business operations through sabotage or other acts of violence.
In each of these cases, as well as many others, the ability to foresee the risks and develop emergency plans, including remote disaster recovery strategies, can benefit greatly from outsourcing disaster recovery implementation to a specialist who has done it before.
Backup & Disaster Recovery Solutions by Silverado
As experienced backup and disaster recovery consultants, Silverado is an expert in applying virtualization technology to help protect your critical business information.
- When you virtualize your systems, information such as hardware configurations, firmware, operating systems, and application information all become data stored in just a few files on a disk. These files can then be recovered to other hardware platforms, inside your offices or at Silverado’s remote disaster recovery center.
- With VMware vSphere, you can recover to any machine, not just specific duplicate hardware.

Among the benefits of outsourcing disaster recovery services to Silverado, we will help you develop the optimal architecture for your organization’s on-site and remote disaster recovery needs.
- VMware vCenter Site Recovery Manager automates your disaster recovery process to ensure rapid and cost-effective execution of disaster recovery plans.
