Many companies learn the hard way, how important Disaster Recovery is to IT and their businesses over all. Betting on never experiencing a service outage or a natural disaster is not a viable or practical choice. The stats tell the story.
"43% of companies experiencing disasters never re-open, and 29% close within two years. — McGladrey and Pullen"
If you’ve ever had your email service go down, you know how important uptime is. Businesses rely on email more than ever before, whether it’s a “contact us” link on your website, emailing client documents, or gathering your team for a meeting. In fact, over 80% of small business owners consider reliable email an important part of their success. However, maintaining safe, reliable email service is no easy task. Just ask the 25% of business owners who experienced major email outages last year.

An important, yet often overlooked, part of your business continuity plan is IT disaster recovery (DR). In broad terms, this is how you deal with and prevent IT downtime. Even if every other part of your business continuity plan is executed perfectly, you remain at a standstill if your IT systems go down and stay down. And the situation will only get worse as your revenue and reputation take a beating.
