Learn Why A Data Center Disaster Recovery Plan is Essential For Your Business

Moulsford Startrails

A data center disaster recovery plan is something you need to consider right now. Unfortunately, it cannot wait until things slow down, when you’ve been able to put enough cash away, or when it is simply more convenient. It doesn’t work that way. Every business needs a data center disaster recovery plan. Without one, you will not be able to recover from a disaster.

Businesses that make the mistake of ignoring this advice pay dearly for doing so. These businesses instead focus on what they consider to be “real” problems, like this week’s meetings, proposals, and regular deadlines. While data center disaster recovery plans don’t have fixed time lines, one could become necessary for your company at any time. But if it is not in place before disaster strikes, it will not be possible to recover the data.

There is no way to tell when a disaster may strike or when a problem may occur. Maybe a natural disaster will affect your business tonight. Or maybe your servers will fail over the weekend. The need for a data center disaster recovery plan could surface at any time. Yes, the odds are in your favor and you will likely never need your plan. But what would you do if you were unlucky and find yourself on the wrong end of a natural disaster or other misfortune? Could you survive without your businesses data? In today’s technological environment, most businesses could not survive.

The main reason that you need to prepare for disaster, even if the chance of something happening is very slim, is that you do not want to leave anything to chance. Do you leave meeting preparations to chance? What about your sales letters or proposals that you deliver to potential clients? You leave none of those things to chance because they are critical to the long term success of your business. The same is true of a data center disaster recovery plan.

A data recover plan can benefit your company even if a disaster never strikes. A reliable computer backup system, key to any data recovery plan, provides data security, the ability to have files restored, and ensures that documentation remains orderly. A computer backup system ensures that the your business continues to run efficiently, even if something unexpected happens.

Choosing the correct computer backup system can pay for the cost of your data center disaster recovery plan many times over. In the long run you can save money by being able to address data management problems that arise, all while having the security of knowing that your business will survive a catastrophe.

Dismissing the need for a data center disaster recovery plan is easily done. Many businesses have done so and ultimately witnessed the demise of their company because of it. But by making the development of a plan for your company a priority, you can help ensure a long and healthy future for your business.

    Help. There are no BIOS slider for HP pavilion 15 b008ee? How can I get this recovery software?

  • jeepercreepers9 April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    Whenever I try to create the recovery drive, it will show the progress bar, but when it gets to full, it stops, then crashes. It does create some files in the drive, but they don't work

  • Jason Franz April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    Does not work. The bios file I downloaded gives me the permission prompt and asks me to agree to the terms. AFter that, it does absolutely nothing. This is for an Envy 15-w237cl laptop.

    When i try to create a recovery usb, i keep getting the msg "InsydeFlash cannot load the driver. Please close all applications." I have run the program as administrator and all applications are closed. Am using Windows 7 *64.

  • Luis Arturo Reveles Meza April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    I have downloaded the BIOS file on a working computer and i can't create the usb recovery flash drive, the program doesn´t give me the choice to do it. It just creates the folder in C and thats it. It keeps telling me that the bios file is not for my PC (which is clearly obvious given that I need it for a dv6620) What can I do?

  • Ade Mugni April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

  • Apostolos Kyriakos April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    When i'm trying to do this there is no option to create recovery usb flash drive as shown in thiw video.

  • Peter Sundström April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    Yes! It worked like a charm 🙂
    When performing a BIOS update on a 15-n221so the system halted and i was forced to remove AC and battery to power it off after ~10 minutes. Created the BIOS recovery USB as shown in this video, and voila…the damn thing was working again!

  • D A April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    Will not work for most people as it looks like HP have kindly removed this functionality from their bios update program. It NEEDS to have a working OS – which defeats the object for most people being directed here.

  • Julio Sanchez April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    Regards, I have a DV9925NR Pavilion that was working fine, I just replaced the hard drive because the previous one was broken. It proceeded to install windows vista original as it comes from the factory with all its installers of the web of HP. Everything went great when installing the HP software Update began to indicate that the BIOS is outdated, proceeded to automatically update it and there came the disaster to restart the computer. From that moment the equipment only turns on, it does not give video, all the lights are on, the fan is activated but at 1.5 miins it goes off and on again in 3 seconds, then it lasts less than 25 sec and it goes out again And turns on 3 sec, and so repeats without end. Try to restore with the videos using the USB method with the windows + B buttons worse nothing is left just whistling and reading the USB I can do I am already destroying the laptop. Thank you if you can help me please.

    winflash gets transfered to the thumb drive, but the sp47531 opens as insydeflash. there is no extracting. it tells me not to turn off my computer. there is a start button and an exit button. current bios, new bios, id, and version are all blank. it says it's about to update my bios. a.be sure you are running on external power. b. before continuing, close all applications. c.your system will automatically shut down after update.

  • Steven Yeboah April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    Hello… Do I need the same Operating System as the affected machine before extraction can be possible? Because I keep getting an "insydflash error" and due to this the recovery wizard doesnt open.

    THanks.

  • Josh Keller April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    at 1:05 of this video, after clicking next it becomes insydeflash. there are 4 white boxes that you can click on. once you click on any one of them insydeflash closes. the original file name is not transferred to the thumb drive. please explain why this is happening instead of what is in the video.

  • Kyle Steeves April 14, 2018 at 8:27 pm

    I have no option to create a recovery usb drive.. When i download the BIOS file it gives me InsydeFlash, it asks me for my current ID and New ID and does not in any way seem like it wants to create a recovery drive, it wants to update the BIOS for the pc i'm currently using, I have an HP G61 Notebook that has the black screen error, it has the error code of 2 flashes on the caps lock LED so i know it's BIOS corruption, please help.
