TOP TWO TIPS FOR HURRICANE SEASON PREP FOR YOUR INFORMATION TECHNOLOGY

Don’t wait for a Hurricane to hit our area to begin to prepare for Hurricane Season. Here are our TOP TWO TIPS to begin prep work for Hurricane Season:

  1. BACKUP TO A HYBRID-CLOUD

There are several different ways to create a backup, but we suggest a hybrid-cloud image-based backup that can be used to restore data and applications even if your server is destroyed, and that can restore data from different points in time.

Use your printer the way you did in the 1990s! Print out a copy of all of your important emergency contacts and have them ready with your hurricane supplies. You never know if you will be able to access your phone or computer, but perhaps you can find a landline somewhere to use in a dire situation.
