Wide Format Printing Disaster Recovery

What Can You Do, When It All Goes Wrong?

If your customers are depending on you to meet a deadline, you must have disaster recovery plans in place. The larger and more complex your workflow is, the more confidence you need in those plans.

The ideal scenario is a one-stop solution that removes the concerns about business interruption due to power failure, data interruption, network failures, hardware failures, telecommunications issues, or even human intervention. People can be unreliable. A total network failure may be caused by someone deleting a critical file without realising it, or by spreading a virus unintentionally – or by spilling a glass of water. Accidents can happen (and although it is rare, sabotage is possible).

In today’s world, too, where connected large format operations may be working in satellite locations anywhere in the world, natural disasters are also a factor over which you have no control. Unlikely risks perhaps, but a possible situation. And wherever there’s a possibility of risk, regulatory pressures also have a part to play in organising a disaster recovery plan. It’s not just about meeting the needs of your customers, it’s about satisfying expectations to meet standards.
