Continuity for business-critical communications

Today’s enterprises depend on real-time digital communications. This presents a serious risk should those services become unavailable. Businesses need an insurance policy to ensure availability of communications so they can carry out day-to-day operations and to respond effectively to adverse events and incidents.

The core StarLeaf Standby suite of tools provides:

  • Automatic meetings failover
  • Emergency broadcast messaging
  • Instant conference bridge
  • Offline Active Directory snapshots and browsing

These core tools enable organisations to confidently meet their recovery time objectives for business-critical activities, and return quickly to normal.

Additional StarLeaf Standby tools include

  • Meetings failover to video in your browser
  • Instant messaging and chat failover
  • Calendar failover
  • Failover for video meeting rooms

FAQs

What does failover mean?
Failover is the ability to automatically switch from a primary system, platform or service to a secondary system, platform or service.
When might a failover happen?
If a primary system is unavailable for any reason, perhaps because of an outage on that platform that takes a service offline, that system can be seamlessly failed over to a secondary system. This ensures service continuity.
What is meetings failover?
If you rely on a particular service provider for your video meetings, you might choose to have a backup video meetings service in case yours becomes unavailable. This means that, when the backup service is activated, your organisation’s scheduled video meetings will be automatically recreated on the secondary platform and so can still go ahead.
What are the benefits of meetings failover?
By failing over seamlessly from one meetings provider to another, video meetings and calls can still take place in the event of an outage, without users having to recreate their meetings manually. This eliminates downtime for all users and supports business continuity by ensuring all scheduled upcoming meetings can go ahead as planned.

In sectors subject to operational resilience and business continuity regulation, having a meetings failover service can help with compliance.
How can I back up my video meetings?
Some organisations choose to purchase additional licences from a secondary provider to use in case their primary video meeting services are offline. This is expensive and means that all meetings need to be recreated manually. A better option is to deploy an always-ready failover service that allows for automatic meeting recreation.
Are remote working tools business-critical?
If your organisation has fully or partly remote or geographically dispersed employees using online collaboration with colleagues, customers, and suppliers, you should consider these virtual communication tools as integral to business continuity and therefore an important business process.
Are video meetings a business-critical process?
If your organisation regularly uses video meetings to connect colleagues, customers and suppliers, video meetings should be considered an important business process for the purposes of operational resilience and business continuity planning.
