How are you backing up your important accounting data? If you’re making informal backups without a real plan of how you’d managed operations in the case of a disaster (think extended power outage due to hurricane, flood , earthquake) then you may be leaving your business exposed.
At a recent conference one of my colleagues presented a short overview of an interesting data recovery solution which not only backs up your accounting data but utilizes some specialized hardware that would allow you to be up and running shortly after a disaster.
No power in your main location? This system allows another location to remotely connect and run your server data which has been uploaded and mirrored to a remote data center (one on each coast of North America).
It’s easy to ignore disaster recovery planning. Most companies don’t do any planning until they experience a serious loss of data. In come cases this loss of data is enough to cause the company to go out of business.
