Storing your server somewhere other than a commercial data center is risky. Colocation Hosting is a flexible solution giving your business the space, connectivity and security needed for your servers.

Testing is Vital to the Recovery Process

Continually review your disaster recovery plan to ensure its continued relevance. Consistent testing is required to ensure employees will execute their roles flawlessly, and data protection technologies will restore business-critical assets within specified Recovery Time Objectives (RTOs)

Recovery Assurance is Priceless

Knowing vital corporate assets are protected and recoverable, and business operations will remain unaffected regardless of the situation around you, provides IT and executive professionals with peace of mind that many would argue is priceless.

Storm Guide

Business continuity planning must account for all hazards (both man-made and natural disasters). Plan in advance to manage any emergency situation. Assess the situation, use common sense and available resources to take care of yourself, your co-workers and your business's recovery. Carefully evaluate internal and external operations to determine which staff members, materials, procedures and equipment are absolutely necessary to keep the business operating.
