Robust Backup and Disaster Recovery

Disasters that cause downtime and data loss can devastate a business. According to research, 90% of companies that experience prolonged outages end up going out of business within a year. That's why having a solid backup and disaster recovery (BDR) solution in place is absolutely critical for any organization.

The cloud provides built-in redundancy and sophisticated tools that make it easy to backup and restore data. Cloud platforms utilize geographically distributed data centers, so your data is automatically replicated in multiple locations across different power grids, flood zones, and more. This protects against localized failures from natural disasters, power outages, and other threats that could impact a single site.

Most major cloud providers like Microsoft Azure, AWS, and Google Cloud also offer simple point-and-click disaster recovery tools to get systems back up quickly after an outage. With just a few clicks, you can failover to a secondary site, spin up your applications and data, and get back online.

Some key capabilities include:

  • Automatic data replication across distributed data centers for redundancy
  • Simple, click-to-restore disaster recovery tools
  • Failover to secondary sites with near zero downtime
  • Rapidly spin up applications and data after outages
  • Disaster recovery with just a few clicks

For small businesses like LK Technologies' clients across Cincinnati, the cloud eliminates the need to invest in secondary DR sites and complex configurations. The cost efficiencies of the cloud model enable easy disaster recovery that fits your budget.

Gone are the days of needing to manage and pay for secondary sites that sit idle until disaster strikes. The cloud allows you to pay only for what you use while still achieving resilience. When outages happen, you can rapidly failover without heavy upfront investment in infrastructure.

We help our clients implement automated disaster recovery plans tailored to their specific Recovery Time Objectives (RTO) and Recovery Point Objectives (RPO). This ensures you can restore business critical applications within your required timeframe and with minimal data loss after disruptions.

Expert Configuration for Security

One of the biggest concerns about the cloud is security. However, research shows that 92% of security failures in the cloud result from misconfigurations, not hacks.

The complexity of properly configuring cloud infrastructure with all the right security controls is one of the key reasons misconfigurations are so common. That's why partnering with a managed service provider (MSP) like LK Technologies is so important for reducing risk.

Our certified cloud experts configure your environment according to industry best practices and compliance frameworks like HIPAA, PCI DSS, and NIST. We enable key security capabilities like:

  • Encryption for data at rest and in transit
  • Granular identity and access management
  • Automated patching of vulnerabilities
  • Distributed denial of service (DDoS) protection
  • Web application firewalls
  • Intrusion detection and prevention

We also continuously monitor your configurations for any unauthorized changes to critical security controls using tools like AWS Config and Azure Policy. This greatly reduces the risk of misconfigurations leading to breaches.

Plus, our 24/7 Security Operations Center provides constant threat monitoring and response across your cloud environment. We have the tools and expertise to quickly detect and mitigate any potential security incidents.

Some of our key security and compliance capabilities include:

  • Compliant cloud configuration based on best practices
  • Ongoing configuration monitoring to detect risks
  • 24/7 threat monitoring and response
  • Advanced malware prevention
  • Vulnerability scanning and patching
  • DDoS mitigation

We also continuously optimize your cloud environment to improve performance and reduce costs. For example, our automation tools can right-size workloads based on usage patterns or decommission idle resources wasting money.

We help clients optimize spending through steps like:

  • Planning appropriate services and instance types for workloads
  • Shutting down unused resources
  • Leveraging auto-scaling to match capacity to demand
  • Utilizing spot instances and reserved instances
  • Monitoring and shutting down unassociated storage
  • Leveraging pricing discounts like AWS Savings Plans

This type of proactive optimization and management is critical for controlling cloud spending and preventing waste. It's an area our engineers specialize in.

Some of the optimization services we provide:

  • Architectural design for cost optimization
  • Resource right-sizing and automation
  • Reservation planning
  • Usage monitoring and anomaly detection
