When disaster strikes, survival depends on preparedness

Most American businesses are not prepared; although they have a strategy for data recovery, many companies fail to consider where their employees will be working after a disaster. A critical component of business continuity planning includes moving staff to a safe place where they can access company data and resume operations.

Gartner research indicates that most companies can endure disruptions that last no more than seven days. It is recommended that organizations adopt disaster recovery and business continuity plans capable of sustaining them for at least one month post-disaster.

Quest's Business Resumption Center is your disaster recovery center

After a disaster, companies must seek immediate, temporary office space and equipment, make arrangements for supplies and deliveries, have telephone lines transferred, etc. Quest's 24x7 Business Resumption Center (BRC) at McClellan Park, one of more than two dozen data centers and Service Delivery Centers,is strategically located in one of the most seismically stable and secure locations in California - above the flood plain, clear of mudslides and forest fires, and far enough inland that hurricanes and typhoons are a statistical near-impossibility. The Business Resumption Center is a short drive from any major metropolitan area in Northern California. Quest's BRC offers a host of additional features, making for the ultimate business continuity management package:
