Backup & Data Recovery Services to Ensure Fast & Reliable Restores
As a trusted retail cloud services provider, RPE develops and implements backup and data recovery plans to protect retailers’ data in today’s multi-site environments. Your company’s data is critical to your business’ success, and our skilled consultants will ensure that your data can be recovered and restored whenever you need it. If disaster ever strikes, having a plan in place can minimize any negative impact on operations, revenue, and customer satisfaction.
Backup & Data Recovery Process
After backing up all of your company’s data on a server—which then becomes the golden copy—we’ll send it to a secure off-site location. Load agents will be added to all of the systems, and backup schedules and tapes will continue to take place as usual. You’ll have secure access to your systems in our cloud within 48 hours. Once deployment is completed, we’ll provide you with a fully documented and tested backup and data recovery plan. Our level of continued involvement following deployment is up to you—we can continue to manage the infrastructure for you or provide your team with the training needed to manage operations internally.
This HA cloud recovery service uses real-time replication to ensure your mission-critical data is always available and recoverable. After the initial back up, only the files and data that change are updated so you always have the most current copy of data at that point in time. Once loaded to the system, you can connect from anywhere.

Creating a Disaster Recovery Plan
You never know when disaster will strike. It could be malicious ransomware, a natural catastrophe, hardware failure, intentional sabotage, or human error. No data center or IT infrastructure is immune to potential disaster. For the past 20 years, RPE has worked with retailers to develop and implement disaster recovery plans to improve speed of recovery should the unfortunate event of a disaster occur. A disaster recovery plan is a documented process and set of procedures to recover and protect a business’s IT infrastructure. It’s a comprehensive step-by-step process of actions to be taken before, during, and after a disaster.
Take Advantage of Our Annual Testing Services
Once you’ve developed and implemented a backup and data recovery plan at your retail business, it’s important to regularly test that plan, preferably on an annual basis. Testing helps you:
- Proactively identify and resolve any potential obstacles
- Evaluate whether standby systems are reliable
- Address unforeseen challenges
- Find ways to improve communication
- Minimize the amount of time needed to complete a restoration
In order to test your cloud data backup and recovery plan, you’ll need to execute the plan in a controlled environment. RPE can guide your team through the entire testing process. Utilizing our annual testing services can set your team up for success in the event of an emergency as any stumbling blocks have been identified and already worked through.
