The executive leadership team at Harmony Technology Services has extensive experience in restoring and rebuilding after natural disasters. The Gulf Coast endured two of the costliest hurricanes on record – Katrina, and then Harvey. When hurricane season approaches, how does your organization prepare for the unexpected?
Back in 2005, Hurricane Katrina destroyed two shipyards for which we had operational technology responsibility – one in Mississippi and another in New Orleans. The storm surge scattered one of the data centers over two miles across the countryside. Katrina indiscriminately disrupted the lives of 20,000 employees and their families on the Gulf Coast. We learned that while the best data preparedness will lead to the most successful data recovery, being prepared means being ready for anything – even that which you can’t anticipate – and being agile enough to do whatever needs to be done. Ultimately, we were successful in rebuilding and recommissioning the environment in a remote location, providing connectivity and business continuity faster than anyone thought possible. Everything was up and running after two weeks.
In the disaster recovery white paper, we share the lessons we learned from our IT recovery approach after Katrina.
