Though Hopkinsville, Kentucky and the surrounding area is not technically in Tornado Alley, the region is certainly no stranger to severe weather. Straight-line winds, lightning strikes, flash flooding, and even significant flooding along the Ohio River can all wreak havoc on your data center. Pennyrile Technologies, headquartered in Hopkinsville and serving numerous small to medium businesses in the local area, has provided helpful advice for protecting your data in advance of the severe weather season.

Backup and disaster recovery may seem optional, but for your small business, files and data are critical. Without them, your company simply cannot operate, and every minute of downtime leads to lost revenue, not to mention its impact on your reputation as a company. Putting all your eggs in the same basket may seem as if its saves you money, but should something happen to your server – whether that something is hardware failure, cybercrime, or even a natural disaster like a serious flood or tornado – that’s the end of your data. Pennyrile Technologies works with many companies in the local area to ensure data redundancy through the wonders of the cloud.

Pennyrile Technologies has noted on its website that roughly 70% of all companies that lose their data in this manner go out of business relatively quickly afterwards. This is a jaw-dropping statistic and one that should drive all small businesses to develop and implement a plan for backup and disaster recovery. Regularly backing up your data to a secondary source protects it in the event that your onsite server crashes, gets hacked, or is otherwise destroyed. What’s more, when you choose to utilize the cloud, retrieving your last backup is incredibly simple. In fact, rather than going out of business, you can have your systems up and running again within hours.

Per the team at Pennyrile Technologies, every minute your website is offline is critical, so minimizing downtime is key. The team recommends backing up your data once every 15 minutes to an hour, then sending that data to the cloud for safekeeping. Should something happen, you will have a recent copy of your entire system – files, data, software, and more – that can save your business should the worst happen.
