With Hurricane Harvey reminding us how quickly our resources can be ripped away from us, businesses all over the city are scrambling to keep on track while the streets continue to flood. Many employees will be working from home for days or even weeks—if they can. The rest are down for the count. The question that everyone seems to be asking is: How could we have prepared for this?
The answer: The cloud. With the cloud, your employees can work from home with full access to all their files 24/7 365 days a year—even in the middle of a disaster.
Cloud storage providers such as Elevated Technologies give you a remote data center, where it manages the infrastructure, servers, and virtualization of your data, and you simply access your virtual files using the internet, giving you access anywhere, anytime.
With the cloud regularly backing up your important files and allowing your employees to work from anywhere in the world, your business can be prepared for the worst and maintain efficiency and productivity as much as possible.
Disaster recovery plans are also imperative for protecting your most valuable information. Does your IT support offer full cloud solutions and disaster recovery plans? The answer to this question could mean the difference between hundreds of corrupted files while your employees are left without work for weeks, or the security of your data and your business’ productivity.
