With loss of life in the dozens and cars and houses being destroyed by the thousands, the impact from Hurricane Harvey has been felt throughout Houston and its surrounding areas. And the damage does not stop there.

Tech companies have been subject to some of the same issues and annihilation. Obviously, computers and water do not mix well, so damage has been extensive to those caught within the flood plain.

Fortunately, most data centers are housed outside the flood plain because of good forethought, but even NASA has been bailing water, as Johnson Space Center took on significant flooding during the storm.

One of the many problems presented by natural disasters is that one never knows where trouble will strike next. Sure, you may be safe from a hurricane if you are inland, but you may have to deal with flooding just the same (or other threats like high winds, fires, fallen trees, or tornadoes).

All of this underscores the notion that offsite data backup is an essential business practice. A flooded office can turn the machines from any company into expensive paperweights. And backup generators require fuel that may or may not be available in abundance when trouble arrives.

It's a relief to know my company's data is safe! Store It Offsite has been providing off site back up for my servers and 12 work stations for the last 5+ years. During that period, they've been responsive to our needs and quickly recovered data when hard drives have failed. They've done this while maintaining competitive prices for the data being stored.

An added bonus, they're right here in Lexington, KY. You can't beat a locally owned and operated business. Since day one, I've had access to the company's owner and members of their management team. You won't be relegated to a call center with this organization!
