Our disaster recovery plans are more than just checking your backups are working. Our three tier-disaster recovery plan is a mixture of audit, recommendation and peace of mind that in the event your server dies, your operations can be recovered and within a time-scale that won’t destroy your business.
If you’re already an Opus Support Customer then you’re entitled to a free test restore based on a sample of your data and a basic disaster plan outline. You may also qualify for a 50% six-month discount on our Cloud Backup solution which holds your data off-site for disaster recovery purposes.
