Japan has experienced a massive earthquake and tsunami causing devastating consequences across the entire country. Surrounding nations could have been placed under a tsunami warning. Some businesses are concerned whether their data centres are still in operation from this powerful earthquake and tsunami. Recent news states that most data centres in Japan are operational. Many cloud services are still operational including Amazon Web Services and SalesForce.com.

If your office became a victim of fire, theft, flooring or an earthquake the risk is far superior than keeping your information stored in a data centre.
