Recently, Delta airlines had a massive network disaster. This is one of the most prominent public examples of business disruption. The airline said the power failure originated at its headquarters in Atlanta, and crashed the entire network. The airline system failed and the back-up systems failed to switch over. It is always better to have a Business Continuity plan in place prior to any disaster.

FatPipe Site-to-Site failover enables companies to plan for back-up data centers without any interruption. This ensures that all web and other incoming traffic is re-directed to the back-up site. Site-to-site failover and load balancing together can help IT Managers to survive this type of disaster, especially customer facing operations, as all the operations will fail over to the back up site.
