Disasters interrupt business. They can be as large as a global or regional disaster, or something as seemingly insignificant as burnt popcorn or leaking plumbing that causes personnel evacuation and perhaps, damage to IT systems.
Having Disaster Recovery plans that are tested regularly are important – but a more proactive approach are steps you can take for actual Disaster Avoidance. With disaster avoidance planning and strategies, effects on a company’s technology systems are minimized as much as possible in the event of a disaster. This helps to ensure the continued functioning of IT infrastructure in the event of an emergency, or the speedy recovery of IT functions if a shutdown does occur.
Disaster Avoidance is part of a comprehensive overall data center strategy which involves “Business Continuity Management.” Let us show you how.
