With the start of the Atlantic hurricane season, the constant threat of tornadoes in the Midwest, and a looming strain on the electric grid from summer heat waves, companies must ensure that their disaster recovery strategies are rock solid and battle-tested. Downtime costs money – and a lot of it. According to the 2014 State of Global Disaster Recovery Preparedness report, the cost of losing business-critical applications to outages can be as high as $5,000 a minute.

Free tools, like BC/DR Link™, are easily accessible to help companies build and customize their own disaster recovery plan so they can conﬁdently respond to a disaster or outage and recover their systems rapidly, effectively and efficiently.
