With hurricane season now in full swing, it’s time to think about precautions to take in the event of a major storm to prevent disastrous loss of data. This recent article provided some strategies to avoid, and some of those highlights include:
- Make sure to back up everything including power, file, and server backups.
- When a storm is approaching, turn off your devices beforehand to prevent them from attempting to reboot themselves and cause serious shortages in electricity.
- Utilize uninterruptable power supplies for your electronic devices which will allow you time to save and close important programs in the event of a power outage.
