How to Be ProActive During Hurricane Season

Updated: Feb 12


Power outages sometimes can't be avoided. For businesses, power outages can have a dramatic impact on profits, especially during high tourist seasons. For example, the recent power outages in the Outer Banks have cost some local businesses up to $5,000 per day in sales. And this disaster was caused by human error, not Mother Nature.

During hurricane season, what should you do to protect your data?


Having a game plan can make dealing with outages easier. If you live in an area that may be affected by a hurricane or severe storm, a key to keeping your data safe is proper planning and investment in IT infrastructure that will protect your assets, no matter what kind of disaster strikes. Good logic to consider is going into a data center. There are many advantages of using a data center, but the most important one is that your critical data can be recovered quickly with minimal disruption to your operations.
