Contingency Planning: Free Guide to Protecting Against Data Loss


OSHKOSH, Wis.–(BUSINESS WIRE)- October 30, 2012 – Contingency planning: A guide to managing your company’s data is this month’s Blue Paper and podcast and infographic from promotional products retailer 4imprint. It offers meaningful advice about data storage and data backup strategies.

It doesn’t matter if your company is goods or service-oriented —- information is the cornerstone of a business. Data is everywhere, from daily and yearly sales figures to vendor invoices and other expenses, important tax information and details about employees. What would happen if that all disappeared one day? Would you be able to continue daily operations?

“Data is a part of every business and the sudden loss could be detrimental,” says Greg Ebel, vice president of sales and marketing for 4imprint. “This Blue Paper helps explain the types of data out there and what methods are available to help keep it safe.”

To begin, this Blue Paper provides a brief overview of the evolution of data; defines a data management plan (DMP) as well as the types of data that can be stored; and explains some of the basics of data storage strategy. The last section talks about different kinds of data storage and backup devices such as:

  • Remote mirroring systems
  • Disk arrays
  • Direct attached storage (DAS)
  • Network attached storage (NAS)
  • Storage area network (SAN)

To find out more about data storage, failure, backup and recovery, take a look at this Blue Paper, listen to the podcast or view the infographic at www.4imprint.com/bluepapers.
