IT Disaster Recovery & Backup Solutions
Computer Geeks can protect your business in the event of data loss, system failures, ransomware and compliance checks. Our IT disaster recovery and backup solutions provide peace of mind to organisations in Bristol and across the UK.
Keeping your business data safe and secure
Having a reliable strategy for backups and a disaster recovery plan is essential for any business that relies on IT for normal business operations. Unfortunately, disasters do happen – from sophisticated cyber-attacks to natural disasters like fires and floods. When a disaster occurs, data loss can be catastrophic for companies of all sizes, so it’s crucial to have a disaster recovery plan that will help you bounce back in case of emergency.
At Computer Geeks, we take disaster recovery and backups incredibly seriously. We have invested in technology that enables reliable and automatic backups, with systems that alert us in seconds to any potential fault. And with hundreds of TB of SAN storage in our state-of-the-art data centre (complete with advanced cooling, comprehensive security and resilient power), our clients’ offsite backups couldn’t be in safer hands.
Do I need IT disaster recovery planning?
Regular backups are essential for a good disaster recovery plan. They enable rapid recovery by your disaster recovery team to minimise lost data and ensure business continuity.
All too often, businesses assume their data is safe without disaster recovery solutions. Nobody expects a natural disaster to affect them, for example. Until disaster strikes, such as:
• Physical disasters like fire or roof collapse.
• Natural disaster like an earthquake or flooding.
• Cyber criminals accessing critical data.
• Power outages for critical systems.
• A network outage affecting access to cloud storage.
• Other security risks such as employee errors.
If any of these issues hits you, disaster recovery methods allow you to restore data and resume normal operations sooner, with minimal recovery costs.

Onsite and offsite backups for your disaster recovery strategy
As well as equipping you with secure backups on your business premises, our 3-2-1 disaster recovery strategy ensures that you also have a backup of your data in a secure offsite location. Cloud-based files are also securely backed up, mitigating the risk of data loss in any scenario.
With daily backups of both onsite and offsite data that are checked and validated by our experienced engineers, you can rest assured that your data is safe with us. This heightened data protection means better business continuity.
How it works
At Computer Geeks, our disaster recovery solution is tailored to your requirements and budget. Whatever your preferred disaster recovery process, our experienced engineers will be notified immediately to any faults, so issues can be rectified as soon as possible for business continuity. Above all else, our disaster recovery plans are completely personalised to your wants and needs. Here are our three options:
Backup and off-site backup with Geeks
Backups and replication are two different solutions that form part of your business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) plan.
Backups take a ‘point in time’ copy of all data, which is saved to an offline media. These backups are available to restore from that point in time whenever you would like.
Replication is completely different. Replication is a second server in a different location, which is ready to go at any time. This second server is completely in-sync (typically hourly) with your live server.
Our first solution gives you the option of backup storage without replication.
Backup, off-site backup and replication with Geeks
For optimal protection, we’ve made a significant investment into hardware, software and security services to create an optimised replication environment on private cloud. This allows us to create a highly personalised replication environment that’s completely bespoke to your needs, set up carefully by our team.
Replication goes beyond traditional backups, offering another layer of data protection. It’s a cutting-edge data protection technique that involves creating real-time ready-to-go duplicates of data, applications and systems. The duplicated data is stored in a separate location. This continuous synchronisation ensures that even the most recent changes are replicated, hugely reducing the risk of data loss and minimising downtime. In short, it deals with the “business continuity” aspect of a BCDR strategy.
Geeks replication is a cost-effective solution using the private cloud rather than public. However, we know that many businesses like to use Datto solutions. Thanks to our Datto Gold Partnership, we can also provide Datto backup and disaster recovery, which includes replication on public cloud. Because of the public cloud disaster recovery environment, this is more of a one-size-fits-all solution.
