Testimonials & Reviews

“We have worked with Finchloom for the past few years initially utilizing their FLIGHT program, but have since branched out into their security specializations, and help with an international merger as they were professional and trustworthy from the start. We have had a great experience working with their professionals in different Microsoft specializations and would recommend them to any company looking for experts who get projects done the right way, the first time.”

– James Daquino, Senior VP of IT, ICM Partners

Understanding Backup vs Recovery

“Backup” means creating a copy of your production environment (called “the backup”), which includes data, machine states, and workloads running on on-premise machines and Azure Virtual Machine (VM) instances. Usually, backups involve a full backup, followed by incremental backups of parts of your data set that changed since the last full backup.

However, when an outage or other disaster occurs and your primary network becomes unavailable, “Recovery” is the multi-step process of enabling your organization to continue functioning.  The first part, called “failover”, replicates your production environment to a secondary site so that you can still perform your critical business tasks. Once your primary location is available again, you then “failback” to your primary production environment.

Clients commonly leverage Finchloom for repeated quarterly and annual testing to ensure that both your backup data sets and your recovery processes are working as expected.
