Is your IT staff prepared to deal with the unthinkable? Imagine for a moment what would happen if your network, and all the systems and applications that rely on it, were suddenly unavailable. Have you considered the impact of this scenario – not only when a disaster strikes, but also when outages are caused by a spike in business activity or a problem with your provider’s network?
Here at Qwest, we’ve developed a framework that enables multiple groups to work together to support business continuity and incident response. We have cross-functional teams tasked with this endeavor and have made disaster recovery and business continuity priorities for our business.
In addition to our own efforts, to help our customers stay ahead of the next unforeseen event, we are always looking for ways to leverage our data center environments, our national fiber network and Business Continuity/Disaster Recovery services. As part of that effort, today we launched Qwest’s cloud-based Real-Time Application Recovery service.
Do you have a plan in place for your IT infrastructure in the event of a disaster or other unforeseen event?
