A Hurricane Preparation Technology List
- Ensure you have a proper backup system in place should in case affected if systems won't boot back up. It is best to have a routine exercise to test before you need. If you are not sure our team at 1080 Titan Technologies can help. Don't wait until the day of the storm to do this or test them.
- Power down and unplug from power outlets all network equipment the day of the storm. This will prevent any damage to equipment. Backup UPS can only do so much for it for extended periods of time. Most UPS only last a few hours and hurricane last for a few days (i.e. power outages).
- Power down all computers and servers. No sense on leaving them on especially desktops. Unplug from the wall power outlet and ethernet cable.
- Printers, probably the most overlooked item. Power these down too. Just as you did with the computer do the same with the printer.
These items can be done with easy but if you would like a professional to come to do it, you can call us at 877-496-1325 to help you with it.
