Emergency Preparedness : Technology
It is never to early to think and be prepared for technological problems. Below is some of the answers to protect your data and your physical equipment.
Battery Backup (UPS)
When the power goes out; is your computer still working? With Uninterrupted Power Supplies (UPS) or Battery Backups you computer equipment will continue to run for a set amount of time. A UPS differs from an auxiliary or emergency power system or standby generator in that it will provide near-instantaneous protection from input power interruptions, by supplying energy stored in batteries or a flywheel. The on-battery runtime of most uninterruptible power sources is relatively short (only a few minutes) but sufficient to start a standby power source or properly shut down the protected equipment.
A UPS is typically used to protect computers, data centers, telecommunication equipment or other electrical equipment where an unexpected power disruption could cause injuries, fatalities, serious business disruption or data loss. UPS units range in size from units designed to protect a single computer without a video monitor (around 200 VA rating) to large units powering entire data centers or buildings.

Backups have two distinct purposes. The primary purpose is to recover data after its loss, be it by data deletion or corruption. Data loss can be a common experience of computer users. A 2008 survey found that 66% of respondents had lost files on their home PC. The secondary purpose of backups is to recover data from an earlier time, according to a user-defined data retention policy, typically configured within a backup application for how long copies of data are required. Though backups popularly represent a simple form of disaster recovery, and should be part of a disaster recovery plan, by themselves, backups should not alone be considered disaster recovery. One reason for this is that not all backup systems or backup applications are able to reconstitute a computer system or other complex configurations such as a computer cluster, active directory servers, or a database server, by restoring only data from a backup.
Below is a few options for Data Backup. Please contact us for the best solution for your systems.
Emergency Preparedness : Communications
Weather Alert Radios
Two Way and Weather Radios
A two-way radio that can both transmit and receive signal. A two-way radio allows the operator to have a conversation with other similar radios operating on the same radio frequency. Two-way radios are available in mobile, stationary base and hand-held portable configurations. Hand-held radios are often called walkie-talkies or handie-talkies.
