Planning for When Disaster Strikes:

How to Maintain 100% Uptime

Presented by OnRamp
Webinar August 7, 2014

If your company does not have a disaster recovery plan in place, you are putting your business and data at risk. Fires, flooding, hurricanes, power failure, theft, cyberattacks and more can all have devastating effects, whether directly hindering your employees ability to work or leaving the IT systems which support your organization down and out.

In fact, according to The University of Texas Center for Research on Information Systems notes “Nearly half the companies that lose their data through disaster, never re-open and 90% are out of business within two years.”

So, can your company afford the downtime, loss of revenue and productivity associated with a disaster, be it natural or manmade? Can your business avoid the threat of collapse if disaster landed a crippling blow on your business? If your answer to either of these questions is “no,” then now is the time to form a disaster recovery/business continuity plan that leverages a data center provider to maintain your IT operations.

In this webinar recording, OnRamp Founder Chad Kissinger will discuss how to plan for a disaster that would affect the primary infrastructure of an information system whether by destroying it completely or impacting it in such a way that it could not operate effectively.

Topics covered include:

  • Types of Disasters impacting IT
  • The legal and financial impact of downtime across industry verticals
  • Disaster Recovery vs. High Availability
  • Understanding RPO and RTO
  • How to conduct a business impact analysis

Throughout this session, Kissinger details the importance of disaster recovery and business continuity planning and how you should weigh your options for choosing an appropriate hosting provider to meet your IT needs.
