Business Continuity & Disaster Recovery for Charities


Wanstor’s Disaster Recovery Service provides charities with continuous replication of critical applications, infrastructure, data and systems for rapid recovery after an IT outage.

Disaster recovery is a critical IT feature that every charity, large or small, should employ. Without it, thousands if not millions of pounds could be lost or an entire charities reputation wiped out if critical IT systems are not backed up or cannot be recovered quickly. From hardware failures to large-scale natural disasters, IT teams must be prepared for when a disaster happens and have the ability to get the IT operation up and running again in the shortest time possible with minimal inconvenience to users.

The key to a high-performing IT disaster recovery plan is having the right mix of solutions to achieve your charities need for speedy recovery and maximum value. Wanstor has architected a suite of Disaster Recovery-as-a-Service solutions to help charities achieve their goals around IT service availability and data protection.

The Disaster Recovery services Wanstor offers charity customers include:

  • Assessing DR and BCP requirements alongside your IT that takes into account budgetary decisions and business impact
  • Architecting solutions to support RPO and RTO objectives
  • Replication of data and systems with backup available in Wanstor’s own private cloud
  • Implementation of failover and replication at network, application and storage layers
  • Creation, testing and maintenance of DR plans
  • Ability to consult, execute and manage Disaster Recovery Service solutions

The benefits of having a disaster recovery service available to your charity include:

  • Business continuity solutions help maintain employee productivity and a business’s ability to generate revenue: When charities experience downtime for any reason they cannot conduct operations as usual. When charities cannot conduct their usual operations, they lose donations and trust from the people who need them most. A backup and disaster recovery solution ensures that charities can quickly get back on their feet after a disaster, so they can keep on operating and avoid losing money due to extended downtime.
  • Backup and disaster recovery solutions help preserve a charities reputation with donors, users and partners: Downtime can cause much more than just a financial drain on the charity, the longer-term reputational costs of downtime could be disastrous. Partners, donors and users alike could lose trust in a charity if it cannot meet basic obligations due to downtime. Deploying a DR solution helps make sure a loss in reputation due to long periods of downtime does not occur.
  • Business continuity solutions help prevent companies from losing business to the competition: The more pressure your charity is under, the more downtime could jeopardize the charity. A backup and disaster recovery solution can help charities reduce donor churn and user dissatisfaction by ensuring systems are always on and users are not inconvenienced in any way.
  • Backup and disaster recovery helps ensure compliance with industry regulations: Though the short and long-term effects of downtime could prove harmful for any charity. Backup and disaster recovery ensures charities do not have to worry about compliance violations and legal issues related to data loss and downtime, so the charity can continue to focus on generating revenue and making the people who use their services happy.
