The Perfect Disaster

We went through the perfect storm last year: A small company’s primary server failed and all data was lost (through an unfortunate fluke in the RAID card that was supposed to be protecting the data). The onsite USB backup drive had corrupt blocks. Luckily, Glade Creek was providing offsite backup, and it saved the day. We stayed onsite, and worked round the clock until full functionality was restored. I can't stress enough how important a well tested and validated disaster recovery plan is.

“80 percent of companies without well-conceived data protection and recovery strategies go out of business within 2 years of a major disaster.”
