Continuous Operations

Continuous operations refer to the ability of data processing systems to operate without interruptions or downtime 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Certain aspects of the system help prevent scheduled maintenance and other planned downtime. The benefit of constant operations is that it can lead to lower costs, higher outputs, and better quality control.

What Small and Midsize Businesses Need to Know About Continuous Operations

Small or large businesses can take advantage of a plan for continuous operations. Due to natural disasters, power outages, and other threats, a company can experience unexpected downtime. With a plan in place, leaders could use backup technology and employ other resources to keep the data systems running. Also, scheduled maintenance can serve as a continuous plan.
