Business downtime can be detrimental without a proper disaster recovery plan in place. Only 6% of businesses that experience downtime without a plan will survive long term. Less than half of all businesses that experience a disaster are likely to reopen their doors.
There are many causes of data loss and downtime — UPS battery failure, human error, exceeding UPS capacity, cyber attacks, and IT equipment failure, just to name a few — and many of these factors cannot be prevented. In order to be prepared, businesses must implement a disaster recovery plan by performing a business impact and risk analysis, and then putting solutions into place to manage these risks.
This helps to guarantee that your data is safe and your customers can continue shopping in the event of a disaster.
