It’s easy to think that you don’t need to prepare your company’s IT for every potential disaster beforehand, but if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s that anything is possible and you never know what might happen tomorrow. In San Diego, there are a number of potential disasters that you have to worry about in terms of disaster recovery and your IT services, but the good news is that you don’t have to be alone in how you prepare for these disasters. In fact, you don’t have to do the work at all if you don’t want to. Here are a number of different things that a disaster recovery service might help you prepare for while setting up your disaster recovery plan in the San Diego area:
Physical damage & theft:
Aside from theft, the only other scenario that will physically leave you without your technology is in the event of a natural disaster like an earthquake, fire, or earthquake (which will likely not be a problem unless you’re located right on the coast). In these events IT services might treat the disaster recovery plan much like they would prepare for potential theft by setting up a cloud storage database to store all of your information.
This way, if your business is destroyed by a fire you don’t have to worry even more about the lost information that was stored on computers. It will be backed up to a remote database where you can access it from anywhere, on any device. This will make it much easier to get things back up and running, because once you replace the physical damage, the only thing left is to access your files once again.
Working from home:
The potential threat of how a pandemic would impact the day to day economy of your business was, until just months ago, not even on the radar of so many businesses and IT specialists. Today, though, creating a business infrastructure that would allow you and your employees to work from home is considered disaster recovery in a certain facet. IT services can help you determine which aspects of your business can be conducted from your employees’ homes, making it easier for them to maintain distance while the (hopefully) final wave of the pandemic comes and goes.
Often overlooked but just as important, setting up IT services that prevent the loss of critical information and documents in case your computer crashes is the most common form of disaster recovery that we deal with today. This can be anything from being able to get back to what you were working on if the power goes out and you’re working on a desktop, to being able to easily transfer your work from one laptop to another if you spill a cup of coffee on your keyboard.
Disasters happen more often than you would think, and they’re almost never because a tsunami destroyed your business. Fortress can help you maintain a good disaster recovery system and help get you set up for any potential threat in the future.
