How would your company fare in a disaster? And how would you recover from it?
If you’re looking answers to these questions, it may do you good to stop by the Four Points Sheraton on Route 19 today.
DQE Communications, which provides fiber optic network servicesis joining three other local technology firms to host a disaster recovery workshop from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 26, at the hotel.
Another installment of the workshop will be held Wednesday, Oct. 3, at the Southpointe Golf Club.
The host firms are Data Recovery Services LLC, a provider of cloud computing, disaster recovery and business continuity solutions, VMware, a virtualization software vendor, and EMC, a data storage solutions provider.
The events will focus on the importance of a disaster recovery plan and how changes in technology have made these plans more affordable.
“Natural disasters, such as a power outage caused by strong storms, or ‘IT disasters”, such as a massive network failure, can wipe out irreplaceable data and literally destroy a successful business,” said Lisa Williams, manager of marketing and wholesale services for DQE Communications. “Understandably, companies of all sizes often are concerned about how their crucial information can be stored and recovered following a disaster."
Williams said the workshop is designed to provide affordable business continuity information and solutions to mid-market companies.
The event is open to everyone, she said. There is no cost to attend, but registration is required. For more information, or to register, visit www.drsllc.net/events.
