Cost Effective Hurricane Evacuation Ideas

July 30, 2008

Since Katrina, most Onsite Computer’s clients have reconsidered the importance of their information and are very familiar with the steps required to protect their data and Microsoft system in the event of another cataclysmic disaster.  I recently received questions regarding evacuation procedures – I’ll post those suggestions for others facing their first hurricane season.  This is quite simple – if you have any additional suggestions, please post them.

In the event of another ‘BIG ONE’ a few precautions will eliminate lots of headaches.  If you must leave, I recommend the following procedures to protect your data and system.

Backup your data (i.e. Outlook data, documents, spreadsheets, presentations, accounting data, pictures, music) and anything important.  Don’t worry about the programs – the data is important.

If your business has a server, then plan to evacuate the server.  Disconnect your server or PC from all cables.   

Pack your server or PC box, laptop, and your backup.  Some think you should not worry about anything else.  The cables, routers, switches, and modems are easily and cheaply replaced.

Drive to a safe haven.

If the worst case scenario happens, a knowledgeable network integrator can have your business up and running in a few hours at minimal cost. If you need help, call Onsite.
