Up to 80% of unplanned outages are due to ill-planned changes made by administrators or developers, and organizations will spend up to 80% of repair time determining what changed. As the saying goes, the bigger they are, the harder they fall. Statistics from a survey of 200 companies showed that small enterprises lost, on average, more than $55,000 in revenue due to IT failures each year. Midsize companies lost more than $91,000, and large companies lost more than $1,000,000. There’s nothing fun about dealing with an outage and the effects thereafter – but our infographic below makes learning about the repercussions a little easier.
System failures, water damage, theft, accidental file deletions, human errors in tape management... None of these threats are predictable, but the protection can be. Meridian IT's Backup as a Service (BaaS) is a resilient, cloud-based backup and recovery service that provides peace of mind from knowing that your critical data is backed up securely and your business is protected against an unexpected data loss.
With every iteration of technology, the market clings to the next best thing. Previous technologies become outdated, unusable, and unpopular. Just as CDs and flash memory replaced the floppy drive in consumer electronics, the state of enterprise backup mediums have seen a shift from tape-based backups to cloud services. It’s easy to assume that newer is better, and older is, well, less efficient – but the truth is, there’s no one-size-fits-all solution when it comes to backup.

Choosing Your Foundation Wisely: Comparing Traditional and Hyperconverged Infrastructures (Infographic)
Is your current IT infrastructure taking you through a round-about way? It's time to consider a more direct route with Hyperconverged. Download our infographic, here.
The issues with traditional IT silos are that they are rigid and result in greater upfront costs and, many times, wasted capacity in the lifecycle of that asset. There is a better way to acquire IT so that it is more flexible, easier to scale, and can be molded around the business rather than the business fitting into a puzzled-together deployment.
Managing these application integrations reduces productivity because of increased complexity, resulting in constant active maintenance and support. Positioning and adopting a centralized communications platform can increase productivity by reducing complexity and minimizing maintenance and support.
