Disaster Recovery Horror StoryRemember the old saying, “It is better to be safe than sorry?” I think they may have been talking about Disaster Recovery. How important is disaster recovery? Of companies that experience major data loss, 51% close within 2 years, while 43% never recover. So let me reiterate my previous statement; it is better to be safe than sorry! It is much better to sit down and take the time to put a disaster recovery plan together now than it is to freak out when disaster strikes.

Disaster Recovery Horror Story #5: One Dead Serve; One Unlucky Company

After a very peaceful weekend, one IT employee came to the office hoping for a nice easy Monday. Instead, they were immediately confronted with Internet and email issues. After trying to troubleshoot the issue for a bit, the IT technician wandered back to the server room and to their horror found the server quiet, with no lights on. The fan responsible for cooling the server died. As a result, the server overheated and burned out the CPU and motherboard. And with no backups, the company was out of luck.
