Very few of us would hide our life savings under a mattress with confidence that those funds would remain safe and sound. However, many businesses risk their valuable digital assets in a similar way.
Hoboken, NJ / New York, NY (PRWEB) September 05, 2013
eMazzanti Technologies has recently published a new article aimed at helping companies prepare for man-made or natural disasters that could dramatically affect business operations. Simply stated, disaster recovery solutions are more accessible, and more necessary, than ever before. The article is called: Disaster Recovery Solutions.
“Very few of us would hide our life savings under a mattress with confidence that those funds would remain safe and sound,” said Jennifer Mazzanti, president, eMazzanti Technologies. “However, many businesses risk their valuable digital assets in a similar way.”
The equivalent of hiding cash under a mattress is actually fairly commonplace in many businesses. Companies frequently store all of their data and information in just one place, leaving them vulnerable to the consequences of a catastrophe, whether physical or technical. Unfortunately, according the Small Business Administration, few companies that undergo significant data loss resulting from a disaster can pull things together quickly and effectively enough to survive long-term—further underscoring how imperative it is for businesses to have effective disaster recovery solutions in place.
Businesses have a number of options for preserving business continuity in the wake of disaster and cloud computing stands out as one of the most compelling, cost-effective and easy-to-maintain solutions. One obvious reason businesses can rely on cloud services for disaster recovery is that the cloud stores data in places other than where a business physically resides, which means a physical disaster that strikes a company shouldn’t impact its data. In addition, a cloud service provider will offer geographic redundancy, a feature that replicates data in numerous locations for added security.
Many cloud vendors also provide hosting services that help keep a business running while it recovers from disaster. Cloud computing solutions also help ensure a company receives daily backup of all data and in-place, state-of-the-art security measures.
Office 365 and virtualization, for example, provide robust disaster recovery capabilities as well as enterprise-grade reliability.
