Business continuity can be a challenge when virus breakouts, natural disasters or political upheaval lead to travel bans. While protecting the health of employees and mitigating the risk of spreading the virus are vital, businesses must continue to function and minimize disruption in productivity.
For example, the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) has recently been declared a Public Health Emergency of International Concern by the World Health Organization. The outbreak is impacting people and businesses across the globe. Chinese health authorities have placed at least 15 cities on lockdown, and most companies are restricting travel to the Far East and limiting travel globally. Many companies in Asia and elsewhere are also implementing “work from home” precautions.
Many industries such as engineering, manufacturing, life sciences, and financial services rely heavily on graphics-intensive applications that reside on office workstations or servers normally accessed within a local or wide area network. Not being able to access these systems could have a significant impact on business continuity. A good cloud software virtualization strategy can help companies to achieve business continuity and maintain productivity in challenging times.
