By tomorrow, Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall in North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia. With strong winds predicted up to 130 mph, the storm should make its first landfall by noon on Thursday, September 13, 2018. While the storm’s path is still progressing, over 1 million people are facing mandatory evacuations.
Over the past few days, the Digital Edge Disaster Recovery Team has been virtually migrating many of its Carolinian and Virginian clients with onsite systems to virtual servers in the New York Area. Digital Edge is ensuring that business data, backups, applications, and server images are safely stored off-site. If requested, Digital Edge can coordinate the process of moving any critical systems to our Cloud environment.
If you feel that your business is in need of Digital Edge’s Disaster Recovery assistance in preparing for Hurricane Florence, please contact the Digital Edge team.

Today’s model and mindset is that it seems that you can assemble anything using services provided by different companies and it will be solid. Those services are like parts of LEGO.
AWS could be like a LEGO. Kids are playing with it. You can make functional things. You can build a house out of LEGO. Is this the best tooling for building a house? Maybe, it is simple. A kids can do it. If you have enough LEGO a kid can build a house. Would it survive many summers and winters, hurricanes, maybe yes, maybe not. Depends how much engineering experience the builder has. A bad engineer may build a bad house out of good old time bricks and a good engineer can make a great house of LEGO. However if you want to build a rocket, you need an “enterprise” class LEGO. You can use one from ToysRs but at least you have to engineer your solution.
Today’s simplicity is a good thing, a bad thing and a scary thing.
