1010data’s Security Precautions Prevent Potentially Massive Service DisruptionJanuary 2, 2013 No Comments
1010data Cloud-Based Platform Unaffected by Power Outages Caused By Hurricane Sandy
Hurricane Sandy has been devastating. The largest Atlantic hurricane ever recorded has
caused an estimated $20 billion in damages and had a widespread effect on the American
economy, property, and quality of life. The Department of Energy reported a combined
8,511,251 peak outages in over 21 states. New Jersey was one of the hardest hit, with 62% of
customers left without power. 1010data was prepared.
Although the staff in our New York office experienced the effects of
Hurricane Sandy, as a company we stayed operational. 1010data did not experience a
disruption in service or customer support during the storm or in the days after. We feel that
this is a testament to the product we have developed and the redundant infrastructure that
we have put in place to maintain it.
Our customers are among the worlds largest and we understand the impact that a disruption
in service can have on their business. Software tests, data backups and standard precautions
provide a certain level of confidence for any product, however they mean little if the product
cannot withstand real life circumstances. After recent events, we can say with confidence
that 1010data provides not only one of the fastest, but also one of the most secure and
reliable data analytics platforms in the world.
