Do business with assurance, confidence, and peace of mind


In an age of increased risk and increased reliability on systems, it’s critically important for your organisation to ensure that data, applications, and workloads are highly available in any scenario.

They need to be replicated and fully backed up on a scheduled basis, with a regularly reviewed, updated, and tested plan for full and timely restoration.

Many organisations don’t have the time or expertise to keep on top of their disaster recovery plans in-house. Trusting this to an outsourced partner ­– who has the experience and technologies to maintain it, improve it, and guarantee its effectiveness – allows you to carry out your operations in the knowledge that if anything happens, everything will be okay.

Riding out the storm together

Disaster recovery can be a bumpy ride, but choosing the right partner with the right expertise will make it a smoother and seamless experience:

The big five challenges of DRaaS:

Disruption costs money and the pursuit of a zero-downtime architecture should be one of your highest priorities when assessing the capabilities of DRaaS.
Many industries come with a mandatory compliance landscape which can be more easily and affordably met through choosing the correct DRaaS setup.
DRaaS is never set and forget. It needs constant updating, testing, tweaking, and improving to make sure that it continues to offer full protection.
The best disaster recovery plan in the world will falter if it’s not well documented and easy to implement. Training and user friendly platforms are vital.
DRaaS systems will need to integrate with multiple existing systems and be constantly reviewed to ensure that changes to your IT environment are reflected in your disaster recovery plans.


Keeping your business at the forefront of technology

Multi-Cloud DRaaS

Leveraging multiple cloud providers for disaster recovery allows organisations to take advantage of the best services from each provider.

Intelligent Automation

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, and predictive analytics are being used more often in DRaaS to identify threats and speed up restoration.

Commercial deliver. We are fortunate to work with some amazing partners. Here are some examples of great things we hear every day.

The Tesco procurement team have been delighted with the way Commercial share our desire to entrench sustainability into our supply chain – we really are kindred spirits. Our ethical and sustainability policies are of paramount importance to our reputation and the Commercial team reviewed and approved all products in a short timeframe. Commercial are already committed to the ETI base code and are working on achieving EcoVadis accreditation for all suppliers on the Tesco account.
The new Walsall Housing Group office is a fantastic, fresh and modern workplace thanks to the wonderful work of the Commercial interiors team. They created a steering group to work alongside us to understand our demands and held regular meetings during the design process to keep us informed of the progress. Our desire was for a more collaborative space, with meeting booths and one-to-one seating, rather than traditional desks – and they delivered a fantastic final fit-out over the full four-floor building.
Each year, Commercial supplies accessory packs to graduate trainees at a leading accountancy firm, which are then picked, packed, and delivered to their home addresses by the Commercial Foundation. This not only guarantees that every new employee has the necessary equipment to be productive from their first day but also allows their IT team to focus on other responsibilities. Collaborating with the Commercial Foundation generates substantial social value returns on investment for the firm and contributes to improving the lives of the Foundation's volunteers.
Wollens have enjoyed a long-standing and fruitful partnership with Commercial because they are always introducing innovations and improvements to our IT environment. As the threat of cyber-attacks increases it was vital that we strengthened our capabilities for dealing with a ransomware attack with a cloud-based backup solution. Our solution means data cannot be altered or deleted, giving us a crucial way of recovering data to minimise any potential downtime and financial losses
Working with Commercial for our branded materials has proved to be effective and collaborative. The team is efficient and they listen to requests for improvements. Commercial has made branded goods simple.
As E-commerce in retail continues to grow, Commercial’s stock-management and fulfilment expertise has allowed a leading UK retailer to free huge amounts of warehouse space. Commercial took on the stocking of our employee uniform, transferring to a new supplier with the management of the supply being consolidated into their existing supply accounts. Not only did this free vital space in their distribution centre, the consolidated supply of all GNFR delivered significant delivery cost savings.
At JoJo Maman Bébé we are happy to work with the Commercial Foundation and support inspiring work they do to help disadvantaged young adults. Like us, the Foundation are a B Corp certified organisation that is proven to put purpose ahead of profits. We have enjoyed working with their volunteers to help with a mug-making activity. We are now working alongside them to create an introduction gift for our new employees, these include printed mugs, pens and notebooks.
