Storm season has arrived in earnest, with Hurricane Gonzalo battering northwest England in late October and other gust and gales felling trees, flooding roads and blocking rail lines. The disruption was felt up and down the country as commuters endured long delays and service cancellations.

To make matters worse, some weather experts are now predicting that the winter of 2014 could be one of the coldest and snowiest on record.

Severe weather events pose a risk to property and even lives. But they also pose a threat to your business in terms of lost productivity caused by staff absences – and in the worst case, damage to your systems and subsequent data loss if your premises are directly affected.

Simply put, an employee stranded on a train platform or stuck at home because of the ‘wrong type of snow’ is not generating value and revenue for your business.

This is where hosted desktops can help.

The hosted desktop is a feature of Cloud computing services. By storing company data, applications, emails and systems in a central datacentre (the Cloud), it becomes possible for employees to access their usual desktop screen from any computer using a browser-based application.

This allows staff to remotely access company data from anywhere, at anytime. Even when staff can’t physically get to the office, they can still access the core systems of your business effectively and securely from their homes, giving them the tools they need to get on with their work.

HW Technology can set up hosted desktop solutions for your business, ensuring that the systems and processes involved are in line with your compliance, data protection and data security requirements.

How would you cope with a flooded office?

Lost productivity is bad enough, but what if the worst happens and your office is flooded or otherwise damaged by an extreme weather event? If your servers are physically on your premises, they could easily become compromised or even destroyed, resulting in the loss of vital and sensitive data. What then?

Again, hosted desktops can help to mitigate the risks. Your ability to protect and recover data is greatly enhanced when data is stored outside of the office on a secure server, backed up in the Cloud.

To discuss how Cloud computing and hosted desktops can help protect your business from weather risk, get in touch with HW Technology today.
