Your Network Is Down. How Much Money Are You Losing? Do you have a DR solution?


If you were online on the morning of February 28, 2017, there’s a decent chance you couldn’t get much done. That’s the day when a simple error—made by a single employee—took Amazon web services down for about half the country, crippling popular websites and essential business tools for several hours.

How costly was it? By one estimate, the 500 companies on the S&P 500 alone took a combined $150 million hit in just 3-4 hours of downtime.

From accidental user errors to malicious hacking attacks, and from simple power outages to bursting pipes to catastrophic natural disasters (wind damage, too!), there’s no shortage of unforeseen events that can grind your day-to-day network operations to a halt. If it happens at the wrong time, it can mean disaster for your business—according to the Enterprise Strategy Group, more than half of organizations will likely experience significant revenue loss or other severe detrimental business effects (reputation loss, damage to your clients and vendors, etc.) after just one hour or more of downtime.

Ask yourself, “How vulnerable am I? How much do I stand to lose? What is my plan to make sure this doesn’t happen to me?”

That’s where TelDesigns can help!
