Were you in the dark? An unplanned power outage wreaked havoc impacting 60 percent of Seattle’s downtown core on May 26, 2016. Everything from computers, landline phones, traffic signals, elevators, etc. were affected, leaving thousands of people without power. Businesses had to let employees go home for the day and try to work from home. This is especially crippling to businesses who host their own servers, everything comes to a complete standstill. Businesses miss out on productivity, lost revenue and so much more.
