So you’ve been designated as the professional worrier. You’re the manager on staff who’s been asked to prepare your company’s disaster recovery plan. It’s a great idea, and all companies should have one. The good news is that there’s lots of information out there. You can do a web search for disaster recovery plans, pick from the best of them, and make sure that you’ve got great cloud storage set up so that you won’t lose any data in the event of a power outage or devastation from a storm.
The not-so-great news is that your company does everything in teams. Brainstorming is at the heart of your game, and this means that your staff can’t just sit at home, log into the cloud version of your network, and do their jobs. In an age where it increasingly seems that everyone is doing their work in separate, electronically-connected silos, you need space for that old fashioned workgroup to collaborate.
Fortunately, there are some disaster recovery companies which can accommodate a workgroup recovery plan. They can move your team into one of their fully equipped, built out hotsites, strategically located either in your metro area or in a nearby, safer zone. Some companies also have access to locations across the US, should your team decide to evacuate ahead of the storm in order to keep working and meet a critical deadline.
These workspaces include everything that your team will need to stay connected with the cloud and with your colleagues and customers: fully equipped computer workstations, high speed, fiber optic internet access, phone and voicemail capabilities, printers and fax machines. You can also plan to ship any particular items that you may need to keep your team focused on the project, not on their location.
So when it comes to creating your disaster recovery plan, don’t sweat the need for team space. We’ve got you covered, so contact us today to learn more.
