Lose Your Data, Lose Your Business | Pedalogica: educación y TIC | Scoop.it
Disasters, by definition, strike with little or no warning. Whether it's an extended power outage, a devastating storm, or some other unforeseen disruption, the most nerve-wracking part of owning a business is the unknown. But good news: we can prepare effectively to weather even the worst of storms. A solid disaster-recovery (DR) plan can mean the difference between a business bouncing back from a catastrophy or closing for good...studies that show data losses stemming from IT outages can prove fatal to small businesses more often than most of us would guess. For example, a U.S. National Archives and Records Administration study found that 25% of companies experiencing an IT outage of two to six days went bankrupt immediately, with even more following in the longer term.
