JOHANNESBURG, (CAJ News) – WITH the impending December break, companies have been urged ensure corporate applications, services and data remain continuously available.
Claude Schuck, regional manager for Africa at Veeam, says a modern business relies on delivering round-the-clock availability, regardless of employee holidays.
Veeam develops backup, disaster recovery and virtualization management software.
Schuck cautions holidays do not mean expectations of continuous access to applications, services and data should be lowered.
“But what happens if the system breaks down during the week that a corporate IT manager has gone away?” he quips.
“It will take longer than usual to get systems running again, and that in turn will impact corporate revenue and reputation.”
Schuck believes taking three basic precautions during the holidays would go great lengths to ensure that corporate applications, services and data remain continuously available.
He recommends avoiding downtime, delete unnecessary data and having procedures in place before the holiday season.
Despite it being a challenging year for many, decision-makers cannot afford to risk compromising their data during the traditionally quiet period of December and early January, Schuck says.
“So even though the focus might be far from the data centre, safeguards need to be put in place to ensure that when employees return from their break, there is still a company to return to.”
