Backup & Disaster Recovery

Most business owners understand the risks associated with major disasters, but many still don’t realize that the majority of data loss is often the result of small localized problems.

These are important considerations for any business owner, but for small- and mid-sized businesses, these realities leave no doubt about the value of having a Business Continuity Plan (BCP).

We had a location in Southern Illinois…a strong tornado came through and completely wiped out the facility, we didn’t know where the computer was, we didn’t know where the data backup tapes were; they’ve never been found.

Once we had learned of the crisis that morning we reached out to our business unit in that location. One of the first responses back was: ‘Everyone was ok, no one was hurt, the location is completely gone, but thank goodness our data is in the Cloud.’

They were able to access that data from another location 10 miles away like it never had happened. Certainly, there was impact on the community and that location, but it was one less thing to worry about, and business did continue on.
