Firms Choose Disaster Recovery

Firms Choose Disaster Recovery

Over the past 3 months DPS have signed contracts for four further hosting clients. Birds Solicitors, Meldrums, Gordon Young and R J Osbourne add to DPS’s hosting base and increase the number of clients that use their software and systems remotely.
So what is hosting and how does it work? Hosting is the process by which software that is traditionally run from a desktop PC is run over the internet in virtually the same fashion. All that is required is broadband internet access to the DPS data centre – other than that, users go about their work in exactly the same way. This allows firms to capitalise on not only a wider variety of software, but also more advanced versions of hardware. Hosting ensures that software is kept up to date while the host carries the burden of keeping hardware performance checked and maintained. In addition, the need for IT staff and expertise is removed to the hosting provider. This is beneficial for firms as they can use the same software as much larger competitors offering high levels of client service without the major upfront costs.
Disaster recovery is becoming a bigger issue for every firm and the DPS hosting service offers this as a by-product. When disaster recovery plans are put in place you can never really know if they are going to work until you have a disaster and of course that is often too late! On the 8th September 2008 at 3:00am all the power was cut in part of the Enfield area where DPS’s offices are based. At 03:00:01am the DPS UPS (uninterruptible power supplies) kicked-in to keep the servers running and at 3.02am the backup generators fired-up to supply power to the DPS server rooms. That meant that when the hosted users logged on they were able to work from 09:18am onwards losing less than 20 minutes of the working day!
So what do hosting clients think of the DPS service? Ron Prior, Senior Partner at King Prior Solicitors based in Gravesend and Rochester said, “You have to consider that IT is the backbone that a business is built on.
I now have the time to manage my business with peace of mind because the systems that we all depend on are contracted to be fully managed!”
