When the Single Point of Failure Actually Fails

Lessons Learned About Business Continuity and Cloud Computing

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - February 09, 2016) - Our recent Internet outage was not due to the first real storm this winter. But as the heavy, wet snow continued to fall and cling to the power and fiber optic lines in our area, Allen Falcon, Cumulus Global's CEO and Pragmatic Evangelist, wrote a blog post, "When the Single Point of Failure Actually Fails," a real-time case study looking at how small and mid-size businesses avoid downtime using cloud services.

Allen acknowledges that any Internet outage could be a disaster, bringing business to a halt for a company fully in the cloud. But, as he points out in the blog, "...a single point of failure really isn't" when all you need is a device with a browser and some form of Internet connection.

Resiliency and continuity is easier and less costly for small and mid-size businesses using cloud computing.
