Quorum: Single-Step DRaaS Eliminates System Downtime During Tax Season

Instant Application Recovery Ensures Tax Professionals Meet April 15 Deadlines Without a Hitch

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 26, 2014) - With the April 15 tax deadline looming, certified public accountants (CPAs) and tax-preparation firms are no doubt scrambling day and night to ensure their clients' income tax returns are filed on time. Needless to say, now is not the time for hardware or software glitches that can result in hours or days of downtime and the loss of business-critical tax-preparation applications.

"For tax professionals during this time of year, it is absolutely critical that we maintain business continuity. Without it, we compromise our own reputation and stand to lose clients to other firms that can get the job done on time," said Mark Green, director of technology at Isdaner & Company, LLC, an accounting firm. "Downtime frenzy can only be remedied with a single-step DRaaS solution like Quorum's that delivers instant restoration of data, applications and systems."

Millions of CPAs and tax-preparation firms facing system downtime cannot afford to wait hours or days to resume business as usual. Instant application recovery is a necessity -- both for maintaining a good reputation and continuing to serve customers. Quorum's disaster recovery-as-a-service (DRaaS) solution essentially eliminates system downtime with the industry's only single-step approach to application recovery. With Quorum, tax professionals have confidence that they can recover from any type of disaster instantly, and get back to work quickly no matter the disaster.

"Natural disasters are not the leading cause of system downtime for midmarket businesses; rather, human error, software and hardware glitches, and system misconfiguration are the more likely culprits. Unfortunately, they also occur with much more frequency, and can wreak havoc during high-pressure situations like tax season," said Walter Angerer, interim CEO, Quorum. "With Quorum's single-step DRaaS solution, accountants and tax-preparation firms faced with downtime can instantly restore their critical applications and realize true business continuity."
