Will You Be Prepared?

Evolve IP’s DR Plan Template helps your organization develop the right DR plan for your business.

Evolve IP, The Cloud Strategy Company, is proud to offer Cisco Powered Disaster Recovery Solutions.

Every business needs Disaster Recovery (DR). Backing up critical data, servers and applications should be a mandatory task for any organization, but many organizations don’t plan properly or use unreliable methods for DR.

Our template will help you plan properly and organize the information you need into one document:

  • Critical Systems Inventory
  • DR Teams and Responsibilities
  • Steps for Restoring IT Functionality
  • Plan Testing and Maintenance


Evolve IP’s recent survey found that one-third of companies have experienced a disaster that affected their business, with the leading cause of incidents and outages being hardware failure / server room issues (47 percent).

93% of companies that lost their data for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster.1

20% of small to medium businesses will suffer a major disaster causing loss of critical data every 5 years.2

Of those without a DRP, 80% that experience a significant data loss are likely to go out of business within one month.3

54% of organizations spend less than $50,000 annually on DR and BC.4

Evolve IP is The Cloud Strategy Company™. Designed from the beginning to provide organizations with a unified option for cloud services, Evolve IP enables decision makers to migrate all or select IT technologies to its award-winning cloud platform. Evolve IP’s combination of security, stability, scalability and lower total cost of ownership is fundamentally superior to outdated legacy systems and other cloud offerings. Today, over 100,000 customers across the globe depend daily on Evolve IP for cloud services like virtual servers, virtual desktops, disaster recovery, unified communications, contact centers, and more.

“Immediately after launching our new call center we uncovered calling trends that made us consider changing the call center’s hours of operation, too many organizations struggle with outdated communications systems and their lack of insight and capabilities. With Evolve IP’s cloud services and the visibility that our exclusive OSSmosis portal provides, companies can not only gain intelligence and reliability, they gain business continuity while reducing costs.”

“Due to our location in the mid-Atlantic and local power grid issues we needed a partner who would provide us with business continuity and disaster avoidance, Evolve IP’s unified cloud services have delivered exactly as promised, and as an added benefit we estimated that we saved over $100,000 virtualizing our servers.”

“Now, if there is a power outage or the internet goes down for any reason, GFI Capital will still be able to see calls as emails with Evolve IP’s talk-to-text feature. If there were a large-scale emergency like Hurricane Sandy, we can now re-route calling remotely and react to disasters quickly – something we couldn’t do with any premise-based service. With Evolve IP, every GFI Capital office has 99.999% reliability, and geographically disperse and redundant, active-active configurations for business continuity in the event of a failure or outage.”

Robert Ross, Chief Technology Officer | GFI Capital

“Redundancy is important for our business so we can maintain service to customers even in the event of an outage,” explained Hock. “For voice and Internet, we use a high-speed cable line because of its low price. Even though we experience outages with that line about once a month, we have had no business disruption now because of Cloud Connect. When one line goes down, Cloud Connect instantly and transparently switches over to a dedicated failover line. Since this is done at the packet level there is zero service disruption for our customers – they never even know. It’s great to have the peace of mind from knowing that when an outage happens, Cloud Connect gives us complete continuity.”

“Not only will phone functionality continue to work, with calls fielded to mobile devices, but our associates will also have access to the call recordings even in the event of a power outage at our location,” said Christopher Goering, Application Development Director, for Focus Forward. “Evolve IP’s always-on business continuity is critical to our operations.”

In our quest for excellence, such recognition is both humbling and extremely gratifying.
