September 2017 – Volume 1

Do you have a plan?

In the midst of Hurricane Harvey and Irma wreaking havoc in the coastal areas, our thoughts and prayers go out to everyone impacted by the devastating destruction. Like Hurricanes, some disasters can be seen coming from a mile away, but some disasters can happen without warning. Whether it be a natural disaster, human error, or cyber attack, data loss is costly and extremely risky. That is why you need a backup and disaster recovery plan should your business face an unforeseen event. Don’t know how to start planning? ANS can design and implement a plan to determine how you recover from a disaster-and how fast. We offer backup and disaster recovery solutions that ensure your data is replicated and accessible within 24 hours of a disaster, quickly restoring you to full operations. You can find more details about Backup and Disaster Recovery by visiting our website and checking out the downloadable content.

Get to know Ron

Putting his dream of being a pro hockey player on hold, Ron currently resides in Medina, Ohio with his wife and two children and serves as President of ANS. Before he came to ANS, he was the Director of IT at a Long Term Care Facility, but he hasn’t always been in the Technology industry. Ron used to design houses for construction companies. Designing houses is a lot different than working in IT, so what made him make the drastic change? His passion for helping clients grow their business and succeed with his help. Outside of work, Ron likes to play hockey, ride bikes, and enjoys a good steak dinner followed by chocolate ice cream. Ron’s favorite color is orange, but when Clemson and Ohio State battle on the football field, his favorite quickly changes to red. Serving as a President of any company is no easy task, but Ron seems to do it with ease. Probably because he is a Leo and Leo’s are, “natural born leaders”.
