How disaster recovery planning could save your clients from unexpected downtime

There is no doubt that you’ll have heard about the Holborn fire at the beginning of last month. This unexpected disaster, caused by an electrical fault underground, caused a huge amount of disruption to the area. This included 5,000 people being evacuated as well as loss of broadband services and power for 3,000 homes.
