Disaster Recovery Planning

2015 was an interesting year. Within two months, the Oklahoma City area experienced tornadoes, earthquakes, and flooding. Many businesses were without power, had equipment damaged by weather, or both. Having current and reliable data backups is crucial, not only because of these types of disasters but also many issues unrelated to and much more common than acts of nature, such as a destructive virus or a lost laptop. Occasionally your staff works remotely and saves files on a home computer that isn’t immediately backed up in your office. EMSCO Solutions can protect you with a variety of different backup options.
