Disaster Recovery Support


Firstnet is the only data centre offering workplace disaster recovery in Leeds.

Unlike some first-generation data centres, we also offer a managed service wrap. That means if your hardware should ever fail, we can be on hand to install. How would you cope if your premises – and IT infrastructure – were affected by another major Leeds flood, fire or other tragedy which prevented your staff from getting to work possibly for weeks. If you think some could operate from home or use the local burger bar Wi-Fi, then think again. Insurers are known to withhold pay-outs where disaster recovery plans are proved to be inadequate or non-existent.

Now consider the peace of mind Firstnet offers. The Firstnet Availability Service provides your team with a home-from home, or office-from-office, within our building. Everything they need is ready to switch on from networked PCs with windows 7, office 365 and familiar applications, to phones, desks and even a kitchen. Your business will recover faster with fewer losses. Your customers wouldn’t even notice a difference. Our Leeds-based co-location cabinets which can house your own DR servers or can be populated with servers configured by us can be provided.

You’d eliminate a costly contingency plan and replace it with an insurer-approved recovery plan. Whatever time of day, our IT team would be on hand to get you on your feet fast.

If you received a phone call that your premises were on fire, in flood, inaccessible due to a police operation or other emergency, wouldn’t you sleep better knowing your entire operation can be switched into alternative Leeds premises and live within hours?
