Disaster Recovery as a Service
Virtual-Q makes lost and inaccessible data a thing of the past.
In the IT space, disasters can take many forms. Something as simple as an employee clicking the wrong button could snowball into a major data loss scenario. An earthquake could send your office ceiling crashing down and render your equipment unusable. A savvy cybercriminal could hold your data hostage until you pay a six-figure sum. All of these scenarios could have long-term consequences on your business.
Being able to access your data in the wake of a disaster is critical. Your clients still need you during an unexpected crisis, and if you can’t deliver, you risk losing their trust and partnership. Imagine if you needed to call your bank to initiate a wire transfer and the representative couldn’t access your account—you would probably switch banks to prevent that scenario from happening again in the future.
You can’t guarantee that your business will get back on its feet immediately after a disaster, but you can improve your chances by implementing disaster recovery. IT disaster recovery is the process of recovering lost data and restoring network function in the critical hours after a crisis.
As your Houston-based disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS) provider, Virtual-Q works behind the scenes after a disaster to recover your data and give your employees access to virtual desktops. Unlike traditional desktops, virtual desktops host your data on the cloud from multiple data centers. Even if your office burns down with every employee laptop inside, you can still access your Q desktop using any internet-connected device.
No matter how major the disaster, we keep your mission-critical systems up and running in the aftermath.
Business continuity is the ability to continue critical business processes after a disruptive event, and IT plays a huge part. Without technology, most businesses can’t do much of anything. As a result, if you want to increase its chances of survival after a disaster, you need a plan that outlines how to restore your network.
As a Virtual-Q business continuity as a service (BCaaS) partner, business continuity is simple. You don’t have to haul servers out of your office before a natural disaster hits; your data is always safe and secure in our data centers. Within minutes of a crisis, you can log in to your Q desktop from your mobile device and keep working as normal.

If you want your disaster recovery plan to succeed, you need to come up with clear, defined steps and make the plan accessible to everyone in your organization. Formulating a disaster recovery plan can take months of focused work, and you still may not be able to finalize the document without input from an IT expert.
At Virtual-Q, we take care of planning your disaster recovery process and implementing it after the unexpected occurs. Instead of reading through a confusing technical document, you can call our helpdesk and get simple, step-by-step instructions. We won’t hang up the phone until your network is fully recovered.

Though most disaster recovery happens after a disaster, your plan won’t be successful unless you properly store and back up your data beforehand. If you only save your data in one location and that location gets destroyed, we can’t wave a magic wand and bring your data back. Luckily, it’s easier than ever to store your information safely on the cloud.
When you log into the Q Desktop, it looks like your standard desktop—you can open applications, save data on your drive, and communicate with clients. However, unlike a physical desktop, Q Desktop doesn’t keep your information on a hard drive; it stores your data on multiple servers and gives you access through the cloud. You can’t lose your data by losing a device.
Disaster recovery doesn’t have to be scary. With other providers, you might spend 15 minutes on hold waiting for the right representative while your business loses profits with each passing second. If you call Virtual-Q, you won’t get passed along to different representatives—the person who answers the phone will resolve your issue. Plus, you won’t have to spend hours waiting for your data; Q Desktop keeps your infrastructure stable at all times.
