Increased Natural Disasters: A Dire Need for Data Protection and Disaster Recovery

Your company’s financial records, presentations, legal documents are more than merely just files, they have become a part of you; they are a part of your digital existence. An alarming number of people are unaware of how easy it is to lose it all.

Global Climate Change and Immerging Threats to Data

There have been changes in the weather conditions around the world with excessive use of natural resources. The depletion of natural resources alongside the exploitation of Mother Nature, has led to various consequences in the form of natural disasters being faced by humanity. No life or data is now safe from the unforgiving hands of nature.

Increased Natural Disasters: A Dire Need for Data Protection and Disaster Recovery

Hurricanes are becoming an occasional occurrence due to global climate change. Huge storms are hitting important areas around the globe destroying everything in their wake; bringing with themselves harm to both humanity and data alike.

In an event of a disaster or major evacuation, you do not just want to stay safe, you also want to make sure all your important data is safe too. You cannot afford the loss of data due to hurricanes as it would immensely damage the workings of your business.

Enterprises have an option to use a second physical device (another computer or hard drive) to protect the data. However, it does not guarantee safety as it can be damaged in the same way. Data can be stored in large facilities as alternate physical copies, but it is still prone to natural disasters like hurricanes.

Traditional inconsistent backup and disaster recovery always puts the users at a risk of losing valuable information. Organizations and individuals keep on losing data and incur great losses as the traditional physical backup proves to be obsolete.

Organizations are realizing the importance of reliable cloud backup. In a world which is based around fast transfer of information, no one can burden the losses to data. Experts have tried to pursue another option in the past by shifting the data centers of the facilities to different geographical locations. The problem still persisted as natural disasters have no boundaries to where they strike; global climate change has left the entire world at a risk of being harmed.
