South Florida Businesses: Make 365 Data Centers Part of Your 2018 Hurricane Season Preparations

Last year Hurricane Irma devastated the South Florida coast with winds reaching 185 mph, making it the second most intense tropical cyclone worldwide in 2017. Unfortunately, several South Florida communities sustained significant damage in the wake of the record-breaking storm. An estimated 3.4 million homes in Miami alone were left without power, which is only a fraction of the approximate 16.5 million people who lost power throughout Alabama, Florida, Georgia and the Carolinas. Irma’s devastating winds blew through a 70,000 square mile area for a total of 37 consecutive hours and caused mass evacuations throughout the Caribbean and Southeast US.

365 Data Centers’ onsite staff in our Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and Tampa data centers are highly experienced in disaster recovery services and, due to our strategic Florida locations, have special expertise in hurricane disaster recovery plans to safeguard our clients’ critical data and keep them running despite the unpredictability of Mother Nature.
