The threat of hurricanes is an understood risk of operating a business in
Louisiana. Amar Oil Company, Inc. knows how much damage one storm
can inflict on a business. In 2005, when Hurricane Katrina knocked out
Amar Oil’s power, they struggled to get their server back up and to collect
their critical data. Future hurricanes would provide the same results of lost
data and unexpected downtime in attempting to recover the system.
Searching for the ability to improve their data security and minimize
unexpected downtime from a crashed server, they chose FACTOR®’s
Cloud Services.
Location: Hammond, LA
Critical Issues
FACTOR Focus:
Margaret Amar, Controller for Amar Oil Company, remembers the
frustration of losing their system due to inclement weather. “When
Hurricane Katrina knocked out our power, it was a nightmare to get
our server back up. The worst part was facing the prospect of losing
several months of critical business information. Given the constant
threat of severe weather, it is crucial to have our system protected.”
In attempting to improve their data security, Amar Oil Company also
sought a way to minimize the time and cost of maintaining the hardware
on-site. They wanted to eliminate the up-front capital intensive cost of
replacing server hardware as well as the hardware maintenance fees.
They also wanted a way to eliminate the time spent on updating the
system themselves.

- Margaret Amar, Amar Oil
Company, Inc.
As a result of moving their system to the cloud, Amar Oil Company
employees no longer have to run the system updates themselves. The
system is automatically updated, and they do not have to replace
expensive hardware or pay annual server maintenance fees. “Today, our
system is always up-to-date. Plus, there are no more
expensive up-front replacement costs, and no more server
maintenance fees!”
The affordable monthly fee that Amar Oil pays for Cloud Services is more
than reasonable, considering the level of protection it provides them,
combined with the benefit of eliminating the time and cost of managing
their system in-house. Another significant benefit is having a system that
is always up-to-date and can be accessed remotely anytime, anywhere.
Remote access allows key employees the freedom to travel and still
access FACTOR software away from the office.
