WMS Disaster Recovery
Read the recent article from Inbound Logistics: What happens when your warehouse is unplugged?
If you think that "data backup" is the same as "disaster recovery," you're not alone. You might have a false sense of security because you are diligently backing up your files, but if a disaster hits, you will need to replace your server, reinstall the software, load the restored backup data…it could take up to a week or longer for your warehouse to become operational again. Data backup simply means a copy of your data is saved to another device or location. What really matters is how fast your backup solution will get your warehouse up and running after a disaster. A cloud-based disaster recovery solution will get you back to business in as little as four hours.
Foxfire WMS Disaster Recovery
What happens when your server won't boot up? Or a natural disaster strikes? Or you have a major power failure? What if that "backup" never actually backed-up at all? Let's face it - things happen. And when it comes to your warehouse management software, data, and other critical business applications, those things can be devastating. For small and medium-sized warehouse companies, an IT failure can destroy a business – through the inability to operate, loss of critical documents, failure to deliver parts, a massive hit to the reputation, and, ultimately, the loss of customers.
