Hurricane Sandy has affected millions of residents and businesses along the East Coast, including many of our clients.
After the storm, some of our clients reported that the widespread power outage made it impossible for their employees to work from home. Others were unable to reach the upper floors of their offices, so they could not access their office technology. Lastly, we heard from a few of our clients whose facilities and Internet connections were still intact, but their voice circuits were down.
Thankfully, each of these clients had a flexible disaster recovery plan in place. We were able to help them restore their power, voice and data connectivity by delivering generators, Quickship technology equipment and mobile workspaces.
Our Mobile Recovery Centers are not only being used as temporary office space, but are also currently supporting Central Offices and serving as the staging areas to configure servers and network equipment for several major cities along the East Coast.
As we continue to restore our clients’ business operations in the affected areas, our thoughts are with all those who were caught in the path of Hurricane Sandy.
