Throughout the nation, weather-related emergencies are driving more businesses to consider the company’s survival, with data backup and recovery being a key part of the equation. With wildfires in Colorado, flooding in Michigan and Florida and drought-like conditions in other parts of the country, it is vital for companies to explore every option afforded to them when it comes to disaster recovery.

According to Computerworld, this means improving business continuity strategies and investing in off-site data centers. With weather worsening, the need for system backup software grows, but it is unclear whether business leaders will take the needed steps. In the past, some companies have been slow to prepare, and some have paid the price.

The cloud may provide one solution for disaster recovery needs when it comes to protecting data, but ultimately it is up to the business to invest in the most efficient service for its unique needs. Whether this means investing in a backup hard drive system or another solution, the best plan that meets both operational and location needs is unique to every business.
