ARE YOU SUSCEPTIBLE TO A DATA DISASTER? Why the Cloud Can Save You From a Storm This year’s hurricane season was one of the most catastrophic in history. Between Harvey, Irma, and Maria, thousands of people have been displaced, and many more have been left without power. Communities are coming together to rebuild and find a way forward. While the human and property toll is severe and tragic, that’s not the end of the destruction caused by these massive storms. In the aftermath of these horrible events, businesses are often left to pick up the pieces. Every day they aren’t open or can’t service their customers, they are losing money. Especially for smaller businesses, recovering can be a Herculean task. Making matters worse, many businesses lose valuable data when their systems are wiped out by water or fire damage. In some sense, data systems are much more difficult to build back up than buildings. You can always put up a fresh sign or some new lights, and insurance will often cover those damages. If you lose information you’ve spent years gathering, there’s no quick fix to get it back. If you rely exclusively on on-site data storage, natural disasters are far from the only threat to your precious information. All it takes is a disgruntled employee, a nasty virus, or a determined hacker to bring your system to its knees. And few businesses recover from these losses. A 2010 report by technology research firm Gartner Group found that 43 percent of businesses shut down “almost immediately” after a significant data loss. Luckily, there’s a solution to these scary threats. Companies that migrate data to the cloud don’t have to worry about a fried server permanently wiping their data stores. Ideally, you’ll have data in three distinct places: on-site at your offices, off-site in a secure location, and in the cloud. This way, you can be triply secure that if one set of information vanishes, you’ll have two healthy backups to draw on. Even if you’ve had data compromised, the technology consultant at AZCOMP can help you create a viable data recovery plan before it’s too late. We can also talk to you about the pros and cons of migrating to the cloud, helping you to make an informed decision based on the needs of your business. We’d love to help you develop a plan to protect and preserve your data from a future emergency, whether that’s a hurricane or a hacker.

Win a $25 Amazon gift card! Here is the trivia question of the month. The first person to call in and give us the correct answer wins the gift card! The day after Thanksgiving is known as Black Friday. Can you name the city where this nickname originated? If you’ve ever tried to share a new favorite song with friends or turn an afternoon picnic into a dance party, you know the value of having a high-quality speaker that’s easy to haul around. The Bose SoundLink Revolve series are the best Bluetooth speakers around, and they’ll guarantee you’re never putting your cellphone into a glass to amplify volume again. In a world where everything is on the go, great sound should be free to roam wherever you do. could ever listen to. When you want to listen to that music with a group of people, however, you’d have better luck singing songs yourself than listening through tinny, terrible cellphone speakers. Portable Bluetooth speakers often aren’t much better. That’s where the Bose SoundLink Revolve and Revolve+ come in. Bose has a reputation for sterling audio quality, and that’s immediately apparent with the Revolve series. Both models feature 360-degree sound. Plop the Revolve in the center of a room and every corner will hear the music loud and clear. The Revolve+ is the bigger of the two, with higher volume and a deeper bass, but both sound great. Equally impressive is the extended battery life, which is about 12 hours for the standard and 16 for the Revolve+. They’re also stylish and easy to tote with you to the beach or on a camping trip — the Revolve+ even comes with a handle. And don’t worry about a little splash or spill, as they’re both water-resistant. Plus, you can pair multiple SoundLinks if a friend happens to bring one along.

First person to call Neili at 888-358-2667 will win the gift card!
