MonsterMed Inc. (MMI) is an online pharmaceutical firm. MMI has a small systems staff that designs and writes MMI’s customized software. The data center is installed in the basement of its two-story headquarters building. The data center is equipped with halon-gas fire suppression equipment and an uninterruptible power supply system.
Because the programming staff is small and the work demands have increased, backups are only made whenever time permits. The backup files are stored in a locked cabinet in the data center. Recently, due to several days of heavy rains, MMI’s building recently experienced serious flooding that destroyed not only the computer hardware but also all the data and program files that were on-site.
