Load Shedding: Protect your data

Load Shedding is unfortunately back again and we have subsequently noticed an increase in data corruptions.

One of the reasons for this is that our computers and operating systems are not designed to support abrupt loss of power, but rather to follow their built-in processes of preparing for shutdown.  Instant loss of power can result in lost or corrupted data for certain file systems.

To ensure that your business data is well protected, we request that customers please review the Load Shedding Schedule on the Eskom website and make provisions to either shut down your equipment before the power goes off or make use of a UPS or generator to backup your power supply.

If you would like more information on how to protect your business against load shedding, please get in touch and we will explain how best to set up your equipment as well as the benefits of moving your business to the cloud.
