We live in a 24/7 world where we expect everything to be available to us at all times. We shop and socialize online and catch up on work emails before the sun rises. Businesses are forced to keep up with these demands and downtime isn’t acceptable. Any disaster, hardware or natural, that puts a halt to business can cost a company immensely. Every company should have a Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plan in place that allows them to carry on with business as usual under any circumstances. If your physical office and all of the hardware that it contains were destroyed, how long would it take your employees to return to business as usual?
If your Business Continuity plan is based in the Cloud, your employees have the ability to continue working from any available device as if the disaster never occurred. They will have access to all of their data and business critical apps via the very same desktop they have always used. A Cloud Service Provider will house all of your information on off premises secure servers. An internet connection is all that your employees will need to keep the business running. Any DaaS (Desktop-as-a-Service) subscription comes with a certain amount of Business Continuity built into the virtual desktop. Many CSPs also offer DRaaS (Desktop Recovery-as-a-Service) as extra insurance for your data and files.
Never be in a situation where your data is unrecoverable. Contact ICC Global Hosting to see how we can help.
