Today’s businesses rely on electronic data, from simple customer information to complex server and network connectivity needs, and are one power surge away from serious data loss.
Even small to mid-sized businesses are vulnerable to an IT disaster – whether caused by a simple gas leak, an extended power outage, a hacker or virus attacking a server, or serious natural disasters such as devastating tornadoes, floods, ice storms and fires. Any one of these events can destroy an organization’s data, their software applications and connection to the internet – leading to complete server loss or worse.
An IT disaster can cripple your business and most businesses aren’t prepared to respond. A study by the Info-Tech Research Group, found that nearly 60 percent of small to mid-sized North American businesses lack an IT disaster recovery plan. A disaster recovery center such as Data Cave can provide you services that will protect your data and make recovery quicker and more efficient. Midwest data centers can be particularly appealing to businesses looking for a disaster recovery center. Since Data Cave is located in rural Indiana, land, power and operating costs are substantially less than data centers located on the east and west coast. This allows us to pass on savings to customers.
An extended period of downtime can cost you big time — in lost revenues, lost credibility and ultimately, lost clients.
At Data Cave, we’ve just published a whitepaper entitled, “Top Ten Tips for IT Disaster Recovery Planning.” Check it out and learn the steps you need to take to protect your IT assets.
