Winter storm Nemo and an IMPORTANT message.

Important Information - Please Read Carefully!

The media is reporting severe blizzard warnings here in the Northeast...winter storm Nemo is on its way. Based on past experience, we can expect multiple power outages throughout the storm period.

Due to the fact that we will be in a storm situation, I wanted to reach out to everyone in an effort to minimize any potential damage to your critical technology infrastructure.
Current forecast information shows that we will be experiencing severe wind and snow fall as well as flooding and perhaps evacuation of low lying coastal areas throughout Friday
afternoon into Saturday morning. This forecast pretty much guarantees there will be multiple and extensive power outages throughout the region.

It is our recommendation that all clients power off all computer work stations first, then power off your servers, prior to leaving their office for the weekend. When you return to work on Monday, turn on your servers FIRST, then turn on your computers.

Even if you have a UPS or battery backup unit, the potential of an extended power outage and the resulting surge of electricity when power is restored is a great concern. We recommend taking your backups home with you this weekend, whether it be on a removable USB drive or external hard drive.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to call our office to speak with someone who can help you: 781-816-9437.
Stay safe this weekend!
