Backup Your Data from Outages Caused by Summer Storms

Is Your Company Prepared?

All of these thunderstorms lately have us reminded of the potential impact that storms may have on businesses. It’s not too late to prepare for storms that could cause damage to your most valuable company asset: your data.

In the event of a natural disaster, business operational items such as computers, servers, etc. can be replaced, but data cannot -not without proper steps, anyway.

Here are some steps to ensure that your company is ready for those Summer Storms:

  • Remotely Backup Your Data! Your data is a valuable asset and should be backed up in a place where company hardware is not stored. Backing up data in an offsite location can help protect data in the event of a natural disaster.   
  • Quality Surge Protectors in Use with Uninterruptible Power Supply Batteries are essential High quality surge protectors and battery backup will protect equipment from being destroyed from surges and electronic faults which can destroy a computer’s circuitry.
  • Keep Servers in the Cloud or off the Floor In the event of a flood with the storm, it is important to make sure that the equipment does not get destroyed. Consider installing a server rack to prevent the headaches later on. Moving the equipment within the cloud helps to keep your network protected regardless of what is happening with the weather outside.
  • Make a Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan Businesses need to have a plan in place in the event of a disaster to help with a plan of action after the disaster. Everyone needs to know who to call and the whereabouts that they need to be. Having a plan will give peace of mind to rest easy at night knowing that a natural disaster won’t turn into a total IT infrastructure disaster.
