Most businesses can’t afford a marketing tactic as dramatic as that pulled off by Elon Musk in Australia, but it brought attention to a serious concern: business continuity.
South Australia has suffered from a destabilized energy grid, costing the state tens of millions of dollars to support on an annual basis. With the introduction of the new Tesla energy storage system, the state is paying dramatically less — and experiencing better energy stability than ever before. Think about it: how would your business survive if you weren’t able to predict when a power outage would occur, or how long it would last? Business leaders throughout the area hail the move as a winning one, proving that this strategy was certainly one that paid off to raise awareness of Tesla’s energy storage capabilities.
Having the right energy storage policies in place is crucial for all businesses, something reiterated during World Backup Day 2019 on March 31st. When businesses lose information or find that critical data is damaged due to a power surge or other force of nature, having a secure backup process in place can save the business from disaster. Whether your data is being stored on old hard drives or on servers on-site, having a remote backup process that runs on a regular basis may be the difference between disaster and being able to quickly spin up a secondary version of data for your business.
While Elon Musk’s decision to build a power infrastructure in Australia “in 100 days or it’s free” may have been a dramatic marketing strategy, there are true implications behind the need. In Australia, the rolling blackouts may be based on the lack of access to power, but businesses have the same requirements as they do in the US — maintaining a secure infrastructure even when there are disruptions to the primary energy source. This is one of the reasons that having a proactive backup and disaster recovery process is so vital to organizations around the world.
