I am literally writing this blog on January 4, 2018, during what is known as the bomb cyclone. My offices have no power, no Internet; backup batteries have been expended; cellular towers are down.
So why am I talking about this on a business blog?
Keeping Your Servers Up When the Power and Internet is Down
Quite simply is a lesson in environmental concerns when it comes to your network. The reason why is simple. At Triton Technologies, for most of our clients, we have implemented cloud-based servers and networks. The majority of our corporate servers are cloud-based, residing on multiple Amazon servers throughout the United States, providing us with regional stability when it comes to our networks.
That basically means all of our antivirus, monitoring servers, backup servers, and more are actually still operational even though our endpoints are not. That means that our clients based in the European Union, Australia, California, and Canada can still access their corporate resources without worry when it comes to productivity.
Connectivity Outside the Storm
Now my house and most of our technicians have lost intranet and power, but our clients wherever they have power and Internet are operational. This is great as a live fire proof of concept. The only received couple reports of VPN connectivity for those clients that are looking to connect locally but all Amazon servers and services are fully operational.
That is why we recommend, when budget and IT infrastructure to the Internet allows, every business having a cloud-based server. The uptime, cost, and benefit are all there.
If you’d like to learn more how it can benefit your company when an incident occurs, don’t hesitate to contact Triton Technologies today.
