Now that we are entering, what has historically been, the most volatile months of hurricane season, we are reminded of the impact that disasters, whether natural or manmade, can have on a business.
FACT: 40% of all businesses that experience a disaster never re-open. Of the remaining businesses, 25% close within the following year.*
With this in mind, we have developed a webinar series which will highlight how OnRamp helps businesses protect their IT infrastructure with disaster recovery (DR) solutions designed to keep online operations up and running, even in the event of a disaster. As part of the series we will be joined by several industry partners and providers of hardware and software solutions that assist our customers in carrying out this vital task.
The first webinar in this multi-part series, which was held Thursday, August 7, 2014, was titled: “Planning for When Disaster Strikes: How to Maintain 100% Uptime.” Featuring OnRamp’s Founder, Chad Kissinger and the company’s Senior Director of Technical Services and Chief Architect, John Thurik, the two discussed the following topics:
- Disaster Recovery defined
- The importance of a Disaster Recovery or a Business Continuity plan
- Considerations when choosing a Disaster Recovery provider
- Questions to ask a Disaster Recovery provider
- OnRamp’s Solutions
