You never think it’s going to happen to you.

The Out Of Control Forklift

An employee in a manufacturing company had been having a tough day and decided to enjoy a liquid lunch. He had a wonderful time and returned to work, driving a forklift, to finish up the second half of the day.

It was about 3:00 in the afternoon when this employee, driving the forklift, took a left turn instead of a right and proceeded to run through the warehouse wall into the bathroom. Funny as it sounds, the employee took out all the piping in the bathroom and caused a major flood.

Unfortunately for this employee and Company, the bathroom was next to the server room which was immediately flooded and none of the equipment in the room survived the flood, bringing the facility and entire company to a standstill. There were no orders to take, no orders to be fulfilled, and the organization moved into Disaster mode.

This was a lucky company. They actually had taken the time to think through their mission critical application data and made the necessary decisions to secure it in the Cloud with Fortitude Technology. Within minutes the new environment in the cloud was running their business again.
