Epic Technologies, an industry leader in unified communications, announced the company has launched its cloud disaster recovery program in order to better protect customer data in event of natural disasters, power outages, employee errors or emergency situations.
Nearly every business, especially in recent years, has become so inextricably reliant upon their data in order run their company. Simply put, data must be available to anyone who needs it and it must be available at the exact right time. Unfortunately, most companies still use an inferior form of data backup such as tape or external hard drives. Furthermore, lost or misplaced data creates unnecessary company downtime dragging operations to a screeching halt, which is out of the question for most of today’s businesses.
With nearly everyone depending on a strong IT infrastructure, it’s no wonder why businesses are scrambling to find the ideal form of data protection and backup. With plans ranging from manual disk backup to off-site backup to sophisticated cloud-based disaster recovery programs, the demand for this technology is clearly evident. The overarching goal of any disaster recovery program is to ensure that in the event of any natural disaster (earthquake, fire, flood, tornado) power outage or user error that a company’s data remains undamaged and is immediately retrievable. Epic Technologies’ cloud-based disaster recovery program, takes this technology one step further, in that it allows businesses to continue running smoothly, even during the midst of a disaster or employee error like deleting a crucial folder off the LAN. Essentially, for the first time, Epic Technologies’ customers can now shrug off a disaster, and continue running their business as normal.
Business owners have been quick to recognize the massive value associated with a disaster-proof business and the drastic reduction, if not elimination, of company downtime. This evolution in cloud-based disaster recovery has been heavily anticipated and Epic Technologies is among the few organizations leading the charge for this powerful technology. It is actively deploying its cloud-based disaster recovery program in the offices of many of their customers, across a multitude of industries.
