Cloud Computing Disaster Readiness – Always Prepared for the Worst 24/7

cloud computing disaster readiness is a valuable fortification to small medium size businessThere are myriad of ways that cloud computing disaster readiness can optimize and fortify a business, but a single major advantage often goes neglected until its’ simply too late.  We all respect how crucial our business data is to our business survival, and how devastating the loss thereof could be in the wake of a fire, flood or other natural disaster.  We also shudder to imagine how we might manage a complete systems failure, which can bring the entire business to a stop in a just seconds.  It is increasingly apparent that most small and medium sized enterprises could not stay afloat where vital data suddenly became unavailable.

It only makes sense to include and prioritize for disaster readiness and recovery via cloud computing.

Keeping the Business Data Secure & More Convenient

Cloud computing can fully optimize ‘disaster readiness’ for your business.  It accomplishes this in several ways – the recovery of your data files in the wake of any sort of disaster is typically much faster than if the data was stored locally at the disaster zone. Cloud computing disaster readiness solves clears this hurdle by allowing you to regain data access rapidly. Such contingency is part of a good cloud computing provider’s service offering

In addition, much of the IT cost and effort that accompanies managing a local office server or data center is eliminated by cloud computing, such as the incessant updates and increasingly arising compatibility issues.

The following Disaster Preparedness Survey taken by software security giant Symantec in 2012 clearly shows that cloud computing disaster readiness is being embraced in North America and everywhere.  Both public and private companies small, medium and large are preparing contingency planning involving cloud computing disaster readiness and virtual private servers.

Stay ahead of the game when it comes to business by thinking about the inherent advantages of cloud computing… and remember us, Cloud9 Real Time, the number one choice of financial and accounting professionals surveyed.
