Imagine a roomful of people dancing to a polka version of “Misty.” That was the scene as my parents recently celebrated their fiftieth anniversary, and that was their wedding song. Reaching such milestones takes commitment, perseverance, and always, a sense of humor.
It’s easy to say that when you apply commitment, perseverance, and humor to growing a business, you’ll celebrate milestones such as first customer, first million, first branch office. But it’s even easier to lose them after a disaster, and nothing’s funny about that. With inadequate preparation, even a low-grade disaster could overwhelm your ability to operate the business.
A disaster doesn’t have to be a milestone you regret. You can’t predict when a disaster strikes or what it will look like, but you can prepare a recovery strategy and come through like a hero. At Quorum, we’re helping small to mid-size businesses discover that disaster recovery isn’t an enterprise-only club. We tell mid-size businesses that they don’t need to dedicate full-time headcount or maintain complex, mirrored data centers to fortify themselves against the possibility that someday, something might happen.
Small to mid-size businesses need affordable disaster-recovery solutions that are easy to install, easy to maintain, and if necessary, easy to use for rapid recovery. And that’s exactly what our award-winning solutions and services deliver. We designed and built in ease-of-use capabilities such as:
Simple installation takes less than a day
Automated updates occur every 15 minutes to onQ™ virtual server instances both onsite and in the Quorum DRaaS cloud
Daily testing checks viability of onQ recovery nodes, and easy-to-read email reports keep you informed
One-Click Recovery™ performs transparent cutover to fully operational clones of your applications and data within minutes of an incident
As a CEO, I focus on helping Quorum customers ease the pain of disaster recovery. As a father, I’ve tried to encourage and equip my children to deal with life’s setbacks and reach for worthy goals. I just dropped my eldest daughter off at college for her freshman year. It was a proud and scary milestone, but deep down, I know she’s prepared to handle any “disasters” and learn from them.
Me? I confess: I needed a handkerchief.
