What percentage are you?

In our own minds we always think “that would never happen to us.”  But in reality, it could happen to you.  Floods, fires, earthquakes, hurricanes.  There are plenty of disasters that can derail your data center operations.  Are you prepared for the worst?  Do you have a disaster and response plan in place?  Would your company recover if a significant disaster were to happen?

In a survey conducted by Network World and IT management software maker SolarWinds, 25% of respondents admitted their companies do not have a disaster plan. Among those without a plan, 57% said they’ll create one in the next 12 months.

Moving applications in the cloud as disaster preparedness are common. Email infrastructure is most often virtualized or put in the cloud, followed by web site/ecommerce systems, database servers, Web servers for critical online applications, and CRM/ERP systems. Approximately twenty percent of respondents said none of their apps are virtualized or in the cloud.

Preparing a Disaster Prevention Plan/Business Continuity Plan is not always the easiest thing to do.  Your plan should require testing, updates and modernization on a regular basis.   However before stressing out and before the unthinkable happens, give BTInet a call.  With our data center located in North Dakota, away from earthquakes, hurricanes and other catastrophes, we ensure you that your IT will be safe with us.

Sometimes it takes a disaster to happen to get the message across to companies – don’t be in that percentage – it’s not too late to start one today!
