Lancashire firm helps firms fight back from disaster

Experts in saving businesses when ‘the IT chips are down’ presented a special seminar to Lancashire business leaders this week.

The event focused on how firms can get their critical systems up and running again with the minimum of disruption in the event of an emergency.

It was hosted by IT specialist Lanway hosted at its Burnley HQ and speakers included Greg Lythe of Dell EqualLogic, Graham Hunt of VMware Virtualisation and Paul Taylor of Veeam.

“The aim of the seminar was to give firms in the region a greater understanding of the latest technology that can help them cope with emergencies, so that they can save time, money and keep disruption down to an absolute minimum,” says Lanway’s Phil Skelton.

“We all know things go wrong but disaster recovery is all about acknowledging they do and having a plan and the systems in place to make sure a blip doesn’t turn into a full blown crisis.

“At Lanway we believe it’s really important for our local businesses to be informed about all the latest IT tools to help them. The seminar was extremely popular with everybody invited attending. Lanway is a forward-thinking company and events like this are a great idea to help educate businesses about the technology that is available to them.”

Delegate Javid Ahmed, IT Manager with the Warrington Housing Association, said: “It was a fascinating insight into some of the measures we can take to help our business. I found it very interesting and informative.”
