A natural disaster can occur at any time. With the recent natural disasters, have you considered the advantages of storing your valuable data in the cloud, so you can keep your business operating? Here are some reasons that will help you to decide why it’s worth it to migrate your data to the cloud:
With the cloud, you can keep your company information stored at a remote location rather on local hard disks or disk-based storage. So, in the event of an unexpected disaster, such as a hurricane or earthquake, you don’t have to worry about losing thousands or even millions of dollars’ worth of data.
With cloud storage you can store and save everything, including customer records, emails, photos, company files and more. Do you use an ERP? With Argus Cloud, you can migrate the data in your ERP to the cloud and avoid losing it in case of a natural disaster or other event that puts that information at risk.
Having your info in the cloud during a natural disaster will allow you to access your data, including sales, accounts receivable, and more, from anywhere. When choosing a cloud provider, we recommend one with a data center in a location that is geographically far away from your own location. This will help you to avoid losing both live and backup copies of your application during a disaster.
For instance, if your company is headquartered in Houston and most of your customers are in Florida, if you use any of Argus ERP cloud hosting, your data would be backed up in our secure, cloud-based data centers with 99.9% up-time, giving you peace of mind. Moreover, if you ever need to evacuate your area due a storm or disaster, you would be able access your data wherever you go.
By storing your data in the cloud, you can also save valuable time and money. For instance, in preparation for an impending disaster, you no longer have to worry about purchasing and deploying backup servers, drives, disks, or additional staff. With a cloud provider, you are only charged for the services you use.
So, when compared to traditional disaster recovery approaches, if you use a cloud solution, you will only pay a fraction of the cost, saving you a lot of money in the end. And in the event that a forecasted disaster does not strike, your costs will be even lower.
Additionally, if there is a disaster and your local servers and computes sustain damage, having your info in the cloud will make it easy for you to restore your data in no time. You’ll be able to access all your data through the internet instantly and restore immediately to your new hardware.
