CEO Update: The San Diego Power Outage – AIS in the News

Brian Wood Blog

It has been a busy week for us.  We are in the process of putting together our webinar series that focuses on the “360° Approach to Business Continuity, Disaster Recovery, and Application/Service Availability.”  We participated in the Disaster Recovery Journal Fall World conference that was held in San Diego.  And, we’ve been fielding inquires about how we did during the power outage.

We handled things really well because we have generators, onsite fuel storage and fuel supply contracts in place to keep our facilities operating for an indefinite period of time.  This combination ensured there weren’t any issues or impact on our clients.

Here are some links to stories or related press releases that have appeared.
