CloudJumper is proud to offer three months of free service to businesses affected by the recent hurricanes that have hit the US, ensuring that everyone has the cloud workspace they need when they need it most.
Disaster can strike at any time whether it’s a malware attack, hurricane, fire, system crash or human error. That’s why it’s vital to have the right cloud workspace solution and disaster recovery plan in place to make sure your business can get back up and running, continue to accomplish work and keep unproductive downtime at a minimum.
Over the past few months, hurricanes and earthquakes have hit the US hard, with gale-force winds, monsoon-worthy rains, serious flooding, and worse taking businesses offline for days. It’s events like these that show why it’s so important to have a reliable WaaS solution as a part of your disaster recovery strategy in order to avoid serious damage to your business.
Without an effective cloud workspace solution as the foundation of business continuity, your company can suffer devastating consequences during an emergency. Data loss can affect your company’s reputation, leading to loss of business, and lower return on investment for the time your employees spent on the lost work in the first place.
That’s why CloudJumper has started the Emergency Services Initiative, offering 3 months of FREE service to businesses that have been hit by hurricanes in the US this year (one-year contract required to qualify). Equipped with our cloud workspace solution, your business can better prepare for a range of emergency scenarios, from hurricanes to cybercrime and more.

Develop a Plan
As with most endeavors, the first step is to create a workable plan. Your business’ disaster and business continuity plan should be carefully constructed and written down for reference and review. Remember, many companies are required to maintain an Emergency Action Plan by OSHA, so this can be considered part of that process.
Your plan should put forth policies and procedures regarding employee safety, business continuity, and contingencies that can be activated if your business’ facilities are damaged.
Define Procedure and Assign Roles
Determine the critical staff that will need to be on-site or on-call during an emergency. It’s important to define who will be needed to keep your business running, and who should be responsible for any emergency response tasks. Remember that safety comes first, and that your plan must focus on keeping your employees out of danger.
A comprehensive plan should prepare your business to coordinate with others during an emergency. How are nearby businesses going to operate during a hurricane? How will police, fire, and medical response be affected? These questions are best answered before the storm hits.
Brief Your Employees
Your disaster recovery plan should not be written and then left on a shelf. Every employee should be familiar with your procedures and plans to handle any future emergencies. Hold a meeting where your plan is reviewed, roles are assigned, and your staff can ask questions.
Review and Update Your Plans Annually
Changes in your business or the community in which you operate can have a major effect on your disaster plan. Be sure to review your plan at least once a year and make any necessary revisions to keep it current and effective.
The good news is that you don’t have to handle this all on your own – the CloudJumper team of experts is here to help.
