What is your recovery plan?

Decrease Downtime: How long can your business survive without its core IT systems? How long could you continue to operate without access to email, client records, accounting records and computer files? A day, a week, a month? Digit IT is really excited about a new product on the market that aims to decrease downtime during a disaster.

What is Datto SIRIS 2?
Datto SIRIS 2 is a new backup and recovery product that is designed for businesses who cannot afford downtime and data loss. It offers the most aggressive Recovery Time Objective (RTO) of any backup, recovery and business continuity solution available today:
  • Restore any failed servers “instantly” as a virtual machine in minutes, locally or in the cloud.
  • Each backup is tested and verified that it can be restored.
  • Backups are stored as VMDK files for the fastest recovery possible.
How does it work?
Datto SIRIS 2 is an onsite backup solution that allows you to run a virtual server for a business continuity solution. The product also allows replication to their cloud servers for disaster recovery.

Who needs this product?
If you operate a server, than you really should consider purchasing this product.

Please download a brochure and contact Digit IT for more information about purchasing and pricing.

Ben's Blog

Disaster Recovery: Last week one of Digit IT’s clients experienced a major server failure. Unfortunately this resulted in a stressful week for our clients, who spent a week without email access, while we worked with HP to repair the server and restore their network. Thankfully there is a new product on the market – Datto SIRIS 2 - that can eliminate this stress. Digit IT will be contacting those of you who would benefit from this product over the next two weeks.

The Mighty Bears – I am looking forward to coaching the mighty Under 8 Bears again this season. Given this I will be knocking off a little earlier most Friday afternoons over the footy season, but will obviously be available on the phone for any emergency enquiries. Matt will also be available during this time. 

Ditch your loyalty cards

Stocard: Is your wallet bulging at the seams for the wrong reason? Enter Stocard – the loyalty card app.
Ben has been trailing the app for a few weeks and is now ready to ditch the loyalty cards in his wallet for good.
The free app allows you to scan the barcodes of loyalty cards, consolidating this information onto your smartphone.
At the store you simply open the app, tap the card icon and scan. If it won’t scan, the store can type in the number.
Stocard is available on iOS and Android, just make sure you select the app to suit your region.

Google 2-Step Verification

Protect your passwords: Are you already using Google 2-step Verification? If not, this is something you should consider.
As per previous newsletters, cybercrime is on the rise and it is easier than you think for someone to steal your password.
Once someone has your password they can lock you out of your account and do the following:
  • Go through – or even delete – all of your emails, contacts, photos, etc.
  • Pretend to be you and send unwanted or harmful emails to your contacts
  • Use your account to reset the passwords for your other accounts (banking, shopping, etc.)
With 2-Step Verification, if someone hacks through your password layer, they will still need your phone or Security Key to get into your account.
Please contact Digit IT if you need assistance installing or using Google 2-step Verification.

Server rack clean-up

Digit IT Project: We recently undertook a rack cleanup for a client. The old setup had cables and components everywhere. It was very difficult to get to individual components and troubleshooting issues was hard. The clean-up was completed after-hours and included labelling and documentation.
The end result is a more stable and easy to service network. Just what we love!
