This month’s focus is on backup and disaster recovery planning for your business. We are hosting a free webcast later this month to look at a new solution for recovering your infrastructure completely within minutes. In other words, if a tornado, a fire, a water leak, or event a hacker attack were to take down your infrastructure, this system can have your business up and running within minutes so that you can continue to support your clients while you rebuild.
Given the risk you are running, is it worth an hour of your time? Seating is limited though, so register now and have some peace of mind at night!

This month’s focus is on backup and disaster recovery planning for your business. While most people tend to think of disasters like tornados, a business disaster could be as simple as a broken water pipe that floods your file room.
Take a moment and picture this scenario. You have a server in your office that keeps your company financial records, your client database, and other files and information that your team uses on a daily basis to run your business. You realize this is a risk, but your business is small and you are backing up the data, so it really isn't that bad, right?
Does your business have or even need a business continuity plan? For that matter, what is a business continuity plan?
From a terminology standpoint, the terms business continuity and disaster recovery are typically linked, but have two different meanings. Disaster recovery is the reactive step of resuming business after a disruptive event (a disaster) has occurred. One thing to keep in mind here is that while most people attribute disasters with natural disasters like a tornado, a disaster could be as simple as a broken water pipe that floods your file room or a fire in the next office over that causes smoke and water damage in your office.
Loss of data is a common problem for businesses. Fortunately, it's a problem that can easily be avoided with the correct preparation. While devastating amounts of data can be lost during catastrophes like hurricanes, the September 11 terrorist attacks, fires and floods - it doesn't take such large events to cause a business to lose important data. It can be as simple as dropping a laptop to the floor, or a power surge that results in burning out a storage device. If you don't have your crucial data backed up, even a small situation can turn into a disaster.
Social media would not typically be the first communication medium that most people would think of in the event of a major disaster (unless you are a high school teen). However, recent events are showing that social media is becoming one of the top means for communication during a major disaster.
The "cloud" has been pushed in our face for some time now through advertising for various services, but many business owners we work with still don't quite understand what this "cloud" thing is. There is a good chance you might already be using some sort of cloud service. A data backup service is one of the primary ways that many businesses are introduced to the cloud. From a data backup perspective, the cloud is simply another server and storage place that is not located on your business premises, but instead located in a remote data center. The equipment and software is largely the same, it just happens to be owned and managed by somebody else and you pay for usage.
