March begins Tornado Season. Is your business prepared?
Why risk revenue and employee productivity loss during an unplanned disaster? Circumstances around the event have enough unpredictability.
March is considered the beginning of tornado season for much of the United States. In Southern states, tornado season is typically from March to May. For Northern states and upper Midwest, peak season is in June or July.
School closings and tornado warnings are in full affect in my area as I write. There is some concern that due to an unusual warm winter across most of the United States that the upcoming tornado season could be more severe than usual. Wind, hail, and lightening are also damage concerns for storms of this magnitude.
Is your business prepared for disaster recovery due to severe weather?
There is a difference between disaster prevention and disaster recovery. Both are necessary, but the former only mitigates the risk of downtime. The latter makes sure if downtime happens you can quickly and effectively get your IT back online.
Disaster recovery utilizes geographic and power source redundancy through the following measures:
- Backup power supplies
- Backup generators
- Power surge grounding planes
- Backup AC availability
- Geographic network redundancy
- Server cross-connectivity
