DaaS to the rescue!

Last week the unimaginable happened in Hosted Network HQ, we had a power outage! Not only was our office impacted, but the entire complex, including the McDonalds that is just a short walk from our building.

With no lighting, no power and no computers you’d think there would be stressed Directors, unmet deadlines and angry customers, right? Incorrect.

Thanks to our Desktop as a Service (DaaS) environment, all employees were able to leave the office and work from home, picking up exactly where they left off and losing absolutely no data in the process. Unfortunately for our neighbouring businesses, that were forced to cease business for the day.

With DaaS you can literally work, anywhere, anytime. Our Channel Manager, Meryl opted to soak up the last bit of sunshine for the day and work outside from her iPhone’s hotspot, while I moved an appointment forward and worked from the reception area. Our Director, Ben chose to work from home, while a couple of members from the tech team chose to head to the local cafe for a caffeine hit to power them through the afternoon.

There was no productivity loss and no stress… Our employees were able to continue on with their working day.

If a disaster was to strike your business today, whether it be short term or long term – could your team continue working?
