Protecting Data in Disaster
Updated: Feb 12
Hurricane season is here and with it comes the possibility of power outages. From data loss to downtime incurred, power outages can have a dramatic impact on business profits.
According to Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), 40% of businesses that close from impacts of an emergency do so because of unexpected outages.
So how do you avoid power outages when disaster strikes? At minimum, a good plan should include surge protection for your on-site equipment. Often called a surge protector, every on-site server and telecommunication data line should have an uninterrupible power supply (UPS). These devices protect equipment from power surges that can inflict heavy damage or worse, destroy it.
Beyond surge protection, an important 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.
That's where using a data center to store your company data can be a smart move. Although there are many advantages of using a data center, the most important one is that your critical data can be recovered quickly with minimal disruption to your operations.
