Prepare for the Worst So the Worst does not Happen
In todays marketplace you have to stay ahead of the Disaster.
If you don’t, your competitor will.
Mortality rate for companies without a disaster recovery plan is approximately 90%
8 out of 10 businesses affected by a major incident either never re-open or close within 18 months
93 percent of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster
These are just a few of the sobering facts that companies are faced with when developing a Business Continuity Plan.
Business continuity management must weigh the likelihood and severity of extreme weather events and implement an appropriate data center disaster recovery plan. Business disaster preparedness must account for the following possibilities
Loss of physical access or power to corporate data centers
Internet connectivity breakdown
Temporary or irreversible damage to servers
Temporary or permanent loss of data
