HONOLULU, Hawaii – July 22, 2020 – DRFortress, the largest carrier-neutral data center and cloud marketplace operating in Hawaii, announces today that it has released best practices for Hawaii businesses to protect their mission-critical data, system and IT operations during the Central Pacific hurricane season, which began on June 1 and ends November 30th. DRFortress, Hawaii’s largest data center with the longest record and hardened facility, details recommendations for local businesses in a Hurricane Preparedness Guide to ensure business continuity and the protection of critical infrastructure and physical assets, while keeping employees safe.
The consequences of a hurricane can be devastating, and business owners who do not prepare a comprehensive disaster plan in advance put themselves at risk. According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), 40 percent of businesses do not reopen after a disaster – making it critical to have a proactive disaster recovery plan in place.
“Prior to the beginning of hurricane season each year, the DRFortress team reviews our own hurricane preparedness checklists and protocols to ensure our data center facility meets and exceeds stringent physical and safety readiness requirements,” states Fred Rodi, President and Founder of DRFortress. “Protecting your critical business infrastructure is key to maintaining business continuity in the event of a disaster, and DRFortress is committed to helping the Hawaiian business community prepare and have peace of mind, not only during hurricane season, but year-round.”
The DRFortress Hurricane Preparedness Guide for Hawaii Businesses features tips to protect your company’s critical data and infrastructure before, during and after the storm, complete with employee training, emergency kit recommendations and printable hurricane preparedness checklists.
DRFortress’ world-class data center is safeguarded against the impact of a tsunami, flood, hurricane, or other natural disasters, and the facility is located well outside the Island’s flood and tsunami evacuation zones, as well as the new extended or “extreme” tsunami evacuation zones.
