How to Keep Your Business Running During a Disaster

Hoping for the best, but preparing for the worst is a harsh lesson learned and lived for many in February 2021.

The breakdown of the Polar vortex causing frigid snow, ice, and bitter single-digit temperatures that hit Texas and many other states so hard in February 2021, jolted thousands of people into the reality for better preparedness. In McKinney, Texas, one business made a decisive move to take immediate action that would ensure continuous power generation in the event of another disaster.

Tech Culture McKinney is in the project phase of installing a diesel generator now with plans to have it fully operational by August of this year. The installation will ensure the continuous, uninterrupted operation of the onsite Data Center. The project also includes diesel refill contracts with 24-hour SLA’s. The North Texas business community will benefit knowing that regardless of what natural disaster might occur, the Tech Culture McKinney Data Center will continue to stay fully operational.

The VAZATA Workspaces Data Center is a lifeline to many tenants and businesses, offering comprehensive advantages to keeping track of their data on a daily basis. Some of the outstanding amenities of the Data Center include:

  • 5,000 sq. ft. of raised floor data center space
  • Locking cabinets currently available, cage space can be built to suit
  • Redundant cooling
  • UPS systems
  • Dual 1GB fiber links, AT&T and Spectrum.
  • Tech Culture is currently working on a 10GB dark fiber link to a peering partner in Carrollton with completion in early 2021
  • Remote hands support available
  • Aggressively competitive pricing

In these turbulent times, preparation for a natural disaster or cyber threats is not an option, but rather a must. A recent survey shows that while a natural disaster can easily disrupt people’s lives and businesses, a cyber-attack can actually cause more destruction economically, for both individuals and businesses.

Statistics like this reinforce the need for having a disaster plan in place and ready to roll out when needed, which most companies are doing. In addition, companies like VAZATA Workspaces are taking action to ensure business is uninterrupted within their data center facilities. Having a robust diesel generator in place to keep the data center up and running is a smart decision for natural disaster preparedness.
