Avoiding Downtime in the Canadian Arctic

Protecting your clients’ data can be a challenging task with threats like ransomware, hardware issues, user errors, and more. Add subzero temperatures and unforgiving weather to the mix, and you’re taking the threat to a whole new level. This is the harsh reality for Great White North Technology Consulting Inc., a managed service provider (MSP) located in Timmins, Ontario.

According to Paul Brunet, one of the owners at GWNTC, they have recently expanded to support clients in the Nunavut territory which is located in the Canadian Arctic. The elements in this region are very treacherous with frigid temperatures, blizzards, and poor Internet connectivity, amongst other challenges.

GWNTC has had success in this region because they understand the specific challenges their customers are facing. “Thanks to Datto, we have a solution that is robust in this environment which requires minimal on-site visits. We can essentially set it and forget it without having to constantly babysit the appliance,” he said.
