The storm that battered the UK on Monday wreaked widespread disruption across the South of England with The Met Office recording winds of 99 mph. Initial figures suggest that 625,000 properties lost power and many rail and air services were cancelled.

David Miles of the Bank of England Monetary Policy Committee said that it is likely the storm will have an effect on GDP. Businesses often cannot afford the loss of access to data for even a couple of hours and worryingly UK power networks reveal tens of thousands of properties in the UK were still without power on Tuesday night: 24 hours after the storm first hit. Redstor’s Virtual DR addresses the requirement for copying and recovering working servers quickly and can guarantee that when a disaster occurs, a business’ systems and data are accessible via the internet within minutes. All that is needed is a simple phone call ‘available 24/7’ and recovery systems will be securely available. 

The system is tested nightly and any issues are investigated, abling Redstor to proactively highlight problems before they result in downtime or interfere with the recovery process. This ensures the process is faster, easy and guaranteed to succeed. We understand how stressful a disaster recovery can be, so there are no deadlines to move off of the DR platform, allowing you to focus on live systems and leave the DR to Redstor. Any designated member of your staff can invoke DR as no technical expertise is required. Support is available in the event of a disaster recovery being required - 24/7, 365.
