As we all brace for Hurricane Michael, we at NTS would like to take a moment to ensure your websites are safe.
NTS has a secure Data Center, as well as a backup generator to protect your data here. In addition to our backup systems locally, we also have another backup in the Atlanta area in case of emergency.
In the worst-case scenario, should we lose power as well as power to our generator, your websites will only be down for a short period of time while things switch over to the Atlanta location’s backups and then continue running as usual.
It is likely that the majority of this region will suffer from power outages which could last several hours to several days or more. We recommend you shut down all workstations and laptops and unplug the power cables from any devices not protected by battery backup or surge protection. Please consult your appropriate disaster preparedness team members and discuss your plan of action. Make sure you have emergency contact information for your team as well as a well thought process for business continuity. And if you need any help please don’t hesitate to contact us here at NTS. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families.
