Colocating your equipment away from known hazard zones will help reduce outages and downtime due to natural disasters, such as flooding, earthquakes, landslides, tornadoes, and other destructive natural phenomena. Colocation provides secure and reliable hosting solutions to help reduce these risks.
Atlantic.Net was a proud sponsor of Disaster Recovery Journal’s (DRJ) 42nd annual conference, held March 22nd – 24th, at Disney’s Coronado Springs Resort in Orlando, Florida. DRJ has been the leading publication focusing on Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery (BC/DR) for over twenty years and holds Spring and Fall conferences on both the East and West coasts. These conferences help to educate organizations about the importance of Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery , and BC/DR certification programs.
This was our second year sponsoring Spring World and the event seems to get bigger each year! In addition to an exhibition hall packed with companies and associations, there was an extensive line up of educational sessions and workshops ranging from How to Design a Disaster Recovery Strategy Without Breaking the Bank to Dealing with Pandemics . There was even a workshop dedicated to addressing BC/DR Solutions in a Wireless World .
DRJ also put on one heck of a networking party following the educational and training sessions, which provided a great opportunity for attendees to socialize with other business professionals who have an interest in BC/DR and a great environment for sharing ideas and information.
Disaster recovery planning is crucial. Ensuring you have a Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plan in place is one way to prevent an outage. Having one in place, however, won’t prevent an outage and not knowing how to implement it won’t mitigate loss associated with downtime. Make sure your staff is properly trained on the policies and procedures in order to facilitate a smooth transition to help ensure your engineers meet their recovery time objectives.
