With today’s changing technology, there are many considerations for your business’ technological needs. One of the decisions that many business owners have to take is where to store their information.
Far too many disasters have happened with local server storage to ignore the data. Delta Air Lines, a leader in domestic and international travel, in 2016 witnessed heavy losses due to the computer outage.
Delta lost power to its booking system and had to cancel over 1,000 flights and it cost the carrier $100 million in revenue altogether. The mishap could have been averted if the American carrier had been working on a cloud-based system. Even without power to the computers on the ground, they would not have had to cancel the flights.
