The Truth About Disasters
They can happen to any business at any time and the downtime they cause is truly catastrophic. Some businesses may not even recover. 90% of companies experience some form of downtime, which may result in loss of data, security, productivity, and revenue. An hour of downtime costs may cost a few thousand dollars for a small company, tens of thousands for a medium company and in the hundreds of thousands for a large enterprise. The average time it takes a business to recover from disaster is 18.5 hours, but 43% of companies never totally recover.
The strength to avert disasters and effectively handle the ones that occur starts with knowledge. The most powerful and flexible disaster recovery plan is local virtualization for SMBs and enterprises with physical or virtual servers. Disaster planning must encompass disasters of all types and sizes: fires, floods, fraud, ransomware, cyber-attacks, power or IT system failure, human error, acts of terror, and other unthinkable scenarios.
What could happen?
While the type of disaster varies, the impact is typical: data and operational downtime that is truly disastrous. The devastating effect of downtime caused by disaster include irreparable damage to data, reputation, customer relationships, income, and business vitality. The best offense is a good defense; you must protect your business by understanding your vulnerabilities, safeguarding against the risks, and preparing for the worst possible business disruption with a plan for business continuity and disaster recovery that will shield your data, protect your business, and keep your systems available and reliable no matter what happens.
