Are you really prepared for the worst?

The Argon facilities offer both dedicated and contended Business Continuity suites. The contented suites operates on a four:one contention ratio with a 250m blast radius model and therefore the centre does not accept client commitments exceeding its capacity within the blast radius model.

The Argon Business Continuity centres have Power Redundancy. There is redundant facilities on both the Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) supporting the Data Suites and also in relation to the Diesel Generators and therefore the facility can operate during periods of utility power loss to the vicinity or a wider area of the island.

Argon can host your critical and backup servers in purpose built, secure, fault tolerant, 24/7 managed facilities. This allows you to focus on your core business, with peace of mind knowing that your infrastructure is managed by business continuity specialists.

Following the pandemic and the need for clients to ensure they control the devices used by their staff when working from home, Argon developed “DR in a box” whereby Argon retain a stock of suitable computing devices together with relevant accessories to be deployed in the event of a disaster scenario either to the users home or to alternative premises. These devices are deployed imaged to meet the client requirement and incorporating the cyber security protocols required by the client. This solution provides a Business Continuity solution for businesses who have less focus on the premises rather the data holding assets and their security.
