Managed Disaster Recovery

Our Managed Disaster Recovery Program (MDRP) is a programmatic approach to managing, maintaining, and enhancing business-critical Disaster Recovery capabilities. MDRP establishes a methodology to assist in recovering critical systems and applications needed to meet business requirements.

We execute MDRP in partnership with the customer, serving as an adjunct to existing staff, and focuses on the recovery of core business applications and processes.

Our teams scan customers' environments and creates a holistic view of the infrastructure to establish a baseline understanding and identify process improvement gaps before implementing the robust, tried-and-tested method to enhance the overall recoverability of the key business functions. 

Challenges We Address

In this modern age, the news is frequently filled with some unforeseen event such as a man-made disaster, natural disaster, or cyber-attack. Whichever it is, it creates mayhem for all those involved. With increasingly complex supply chains, geo-spread organisations, and customers, it may not be your disaster but someone else’s which impacts you.

Disaster Recovery planning is important, but it need not be overwhelming. Armed with the right information, we can help you can prepare a comprehensive, logical recovery plan that avoids mistakes and will return your business operations to normal as quickly as possible, should the worst happen.

Our Approach

The methodology supporting MDRP reviews an organisation’s current recovery program, establishes a baseline, develops recovery procedures, defines the testing program, conducts recovery tests, identifies improvement opportunities, and manages the program lifecycle. MDRP is conducted in four phases.


The first phase of focuses on gathering information about the existing production infrastructure and application landscape required to develop a baseline for the environment and tailor the program to the Customer’s specific needs and create a comprehensive mapping of infrastructure, applications, and dependencies.


The goal of the Design Phase is to transform the data gathered in the Discovery Phase into a detailed blueprint of the customer’s recovery architecture and to make the necessary preparations to successfully execute MDRP tests.


The Run Phase of MDRP focuses on putting into action the recovery solutions, architecture, and recovery procedures created in the Design Phase to help ensure the viability and integrity of the program.


The final phase of MDRP addresses the life-cycle management aspect of the Customer’s recovery program and is responsible for keeping it current through monitoring changes to the production environment and regular engagement with the designated customer team
