Protecting Your Data and Hurricanes

July 7, 2009

As hurricane season approaches its active months, Microsoft business clients of Onsite Computer Services in New Orleans are inquiring about IT disaster preparations in the face of an approaching hurricane.  There are a plethora of tactics utilized by Onsite clients to ensure their data is protected – from physically evacuating a business server or backup media (tapes and external hard disks) to using the cloud and offsite storage of data.

Evacuating a server or physical backup media has its merits: in the event of a devastating hurricane requiring relocation, a business can be up and running in a relatively short time.  However, evacuating a server or backup media presents a special set of concerns at a time when there is so much to consider.  In addition to family and personal needs, the evacuated server or backup media requires space and protection from loss, damage and theft.

An increasing number of Onsite clients are considering cloud data storage services at remote sites offered by IBM Corp., Microsoft Corp., Symantec Corp, EMC Corp., Iron Mountain and Seagate Technology, to name a few. Cloud storage maintains copies of files safely and securely off-site.  Those who utilize a cloud data storage service claim it eliminates concerns like loss,  damage and theft associated with physically evacuating a server or backup media.  Knowing their business data is safe and offsite provides peace of mind from an IT perspective.

Is your data susceptible to local disasters, including fire, theft, floods, tornados and human errors?  Contact Onsite Computer Services today to get the whole story on innovative data protection and disaster recovery ideas through cloud storage.
