Disaster recovery and business continuity are two of my favorite topics to focus on when helping business owners with their IT. With tropical storm Isaias approaching, it’s a great time to think about your DR and BC posture. Disasters don’t always come in the form of a tropic storm, hurricane, earthquake, or tornado. To keep things simple, I’m covering two common disaster topics and how Whole Technology might respond to such an incident.
Power outages are one of the most common forms of disaster. Your power can go out at any time, for many reasons, and businesses that are prepared can prevent a lot of headaches.
How we respond: To protect hardware and IT investments we always implement an Uninterruptible Power Supply, also known as a backup battery. This can temporarily keep servers, phones, and other critical IT infrastructure up and running during a power outage. Whole Technology helps small businesses properly size, procure, and setup these power supplies all the time. For more significant outages, Whole Technology helps its customers acquire temporary power solutions or implement permanent standby generators through one of our partner businesses.
The physical aspect of your business can easily be damaged by disaster scenarios, leading to catastrophic effects on your business. Fires, floods, earthquakes, vandalism, and theft are just a few examples of how your business can be affected in a physical manner.
How we respond: When a customer’s physical location is in jeopardy, we work diligently to get them operating. We offer cloud-based disaster recovery solutions that can keep your users working when critical IT infrastructure has been damaged to the point where it cannot be used.
