Black Holes, Rogue Planets and Mayan Calendars! Better Move to the Cloud.

Visit Website View Our Posts

Congratulations! You survived the end of the Mayan calendar, a collision with Planet X (or Nibiru, depending on your preference), zombie apocalypses, black holes emanating from the Large Hadron Collider and the holidays with your extended family.

 

Of course, this news probably comes as no surprise. Despite the warnings from a few small groups of doomsday sayers that the world would surely end on December 21, 2012, most people went about their workday routines without a second thought of Apocalypse. That doesn’t mean, however, that we should throw caution to the solar winds.

 

While events like black holes and planet collisions are unlikely to ever affect your business, the chance that your business could suffer damage from tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes or blizzards is quite real. Add in common events like flooded server rooms, office building fires or theft, and the threat of catastrophe can begin to feel imminent. If your business doesn’t have a disaster recovery plan in place for your company data, catastrophes like these could impact the survivability of your business.

 

The business benefits of moving accounting and CRM software to the cloud have been widely touted, but the cloud has another benefit: it’s a natural fit for disaster recovery. With all of your business applications and data in the cloud, there is no need to fret about the myriad disasters that could befall your internal technology. In the event a disaster damages or destroys your office, your employees will be able to access the applications they need to stay productive via the internet from any location, thus cutting down on the time your business needs to recover.

 

Additionally, cloud-based backups, like Myappsanywhere’s DataSafe Online Backup, are ideal for mitigating your risk of losing precious data during or after a disaster. Cloud-based backups offered through your hosting provider can automate data backups, ensuring that data from your office is replicated to the cloud on a set schedule. Whether it’s every 15 minutes or once a day, data and server images are backed up, compressed and encrypted, and finally transmitted via the internet to a secure, off-site data center. At Myappsanywhere, that means your data will remain compressed and encrypted at our SSAE 16 Type II attested data center, making this backup solution ideal for companies with regulated environments.

 

Cloud-based disaster recovery solutions offer a host of other benefits as well, including:

  • Real-time data and applications availability via an internet connection
  • Cost-effective, month-to-month pricing with no contracts
  • Easy access to your data from any recovery site so that you can get back to work
  • No need to manage data replication or off-site disaster recovery locations
