A Glossary


In the context of managed IT services, a restore refers to the process of recovering data that has been lost or damaged due to various reasons, such as accidental deletion, hardware failure, software errors, or cyberattacks. To ensure that the data can be recovered in case of such events, managed IT service providers often implement backup and disaster recovery solutions.

These solutions involve creating multiple copies of the data and storing them in secure offsite locations or cloud-based systems. When a restore is needed, the service provider can retrieve the backup data and restore it to the original or a new location. The restore process is a critical aspect of managed IT services, as it can help minimize the impact of data loss and ensure business continuity. The speed and accuracy of the restore process depend on various factors such as the backup solution used, the amount of data being restored, and the complexity of the IT environment. Service level agreements (SLAs) often specify the expected restore time and ensure that the restore process is performed within a reasonable timeframe.
