Five Lessons about Disaster Recovery from Hurricane Sandy

Five Lessons about Disaster Recovery from Hurricane Sandy

January 24

If you’re looking for some doom and gloom from the hurricane, you won’t find it here. Don’t get us wrong. Hurricane Sandy was destructive and terrible and it’s hard to say that anything good came out of it. But that doesn’t mean there weren’t stories of success.

Here’s a taste of what you’ll find in our newest white paper, “Disaster Recovery: Five Lessons about Disaster Recovery from Hurricane Sandy” (which you can read or download below):

  • “We were able to be heroes from a technology standpoint.”
  • “We had their infrastructure up for them so quickly, their biggest problem was figuring out where to send their staff.”
  • “We were able to get everything back to the way it was a few minutes before the power was lost.”
  • “The day after Hurricane Sandy hit, STF Consulting was fully operational.”

You don’t have to be in the middle of the largest hurricane in Atlantic history to get results like these. Because the four MSPs interviewed in this paper were prepared with the right plans and the right technologies, they were able to outsmart the storm. Which means they could have outsmarted any disaster.

Join them as they share their secrets to having what we like to call “disaster resistance.”

Here’s the introduction (you can read the rest of the paper or download it below):

On Oct. 29, 2012, Hurricane Sandy tore through the eastern coast of the United States, causing heavy damage to the New Jersey coastline and New York City.

On Oct. 30, the superstorm left 8 million Americans without power, thousands without homes, highways closed, and subway systems flooded. Sandy’s 90 mph winds spanned more than 1,100 miles, making it the largest Atlantic hurricane on record. At least 125 deaths and $63 billion (and counting) in economic losses were left in the hurricane’s wake.

Four managed service providers (MSPs) in the path of Hurricane Sandy recently learned some grim lessons about disaster recovery and business continuity. All four were able to recover and restore their clients’ data, despite the intensity of the storm and its widespread damage.

How? With emergency preparedness, a little Yankee ingenuity, and lots of disaster resistance. In this white paper Rashaad, Guy, Sean, and John share five lessons they learned the hard way from Hurricane Sandy.
