Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Print and Mail Services
PCI Group’s ACTIV dR solution protects you against both planned and unplanned business disruptions. Most traditional Disaster Recovery programs use a “cold-site” approach, which can be costly, typically only designed for catastrophic events and complicated to deploy when you need them most.
Conversely, PCI ACTIV dR solution is an always on and active or hot site solution which can be deployed quickly and cost effectively. With ACTIV dR, PCI Group methodically processes a small portion of customer work and rotates through all customer applications on a regular schedule. This ensures we are actively processing current work from file transfer to mailing. It also enables us to test on a periodic basis to make sure we are up-to-date with any of the changes you make to your business communications.
The chart below illustrates the difference between PCI’s ACTIV dR solution and the traditional Disaster Recovery approach.
