Why You Need A Disaster Recovery Plan

What’s the first thing that comes to mind when you think of the word “disaster”?

Chances are, you’re thinking of a major natural disaster, like a hurricane or tornado. While those are both examples of disasters that could put you out of business, there are many more disasters that can derail your company – and they aren’t all completely obvious.

For example, what if a severe ice storm or thunderstorm happens and causes a tree to fall through the roof of your company, destroying hardware and critical documents in the process? What if lightning strikes and takes out the power in your building for days or weeks? What if a thief breaks into your building and steals equipment and/or data?

All of these situations could put you out of business or, at the very least, cause you to lose a lot of money. It is even estimated by the US Bureau of Labor that over 90% of businesses that suffer a significant data loss go out of business within five years.

Not very comforting, right? Well, the good news is that many disasters are preventable. And, if they aren’t preventable, your business can recover from them easily with the right disaster recovery plan in place. Here at Pro OnCall Technologies, our disaster recovery plans can give you the peace of mind you need to sleep well at night – you’ll know that your company is protected and can be recovered if an unpreventable disaster occurs.

A major part of recovering from a disaster is having all of your files backed up. That way, you can easily retrieve all of your data if your hardware is destroyed.
In a disaster recovery plan, this is done by using the cloud. In other words, the files are stored remotely on the internet. If you don’t have your files stored remotely that way, you could lose them for good!

Here at Pro OnCall, our disaster recovery plans are designed to give you peace of mind. You’ll know that your data is safe and can be easily recovered in the event of a disaster. Ready to secure your business? Contact us today for a consultation!
