Speaker:Simon O’Sullivan, Maxava

Imagine for a moment it’s your office crumbled and in pieces. Your equipment has been crushed by heavy debris, possibly burned in a fire, water-logged by fire department hoses and then exposed to the elements for days on end. Without an effective disaster recovery plan and the technology enabled to execute on the plan, businesses affected by the earthquake, or any other natural disaster, are crippled until they can get to their data. Because we are a disaster recovery company, Maxava gets to work with many companies facing disasters of various magnitudes – in the past year we have helped our customers through serious machine failures, hurricanes, tornadoes, blizzards and now earthquakes. The only thing similar in all these cases is that despite being prepared each company never really thought it would happen to them.
