You wake up one morning, go on about your morning chores and head to the office. You switch on your computer and your world goes silent. You can feel the air rushing out of your ear, the sweat pouring down your forehead and can only hear your heart thumping loudly – lub dub, lub dub, lub dub – facing your worst IT nightmare ever.
We all have been there. The IT Twilight Zone as we call it is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. The IT Zone which lies between the pit of man’s downtime fears and the summit of his computer and software knowledge.
If you are an IT professional, chances are you have your very own IT Twilight Zone story. Probably more than one. Have you faced unexplained system downtime for hours? Did you have an unexpected cyberattack and security breach and didn’t have a backup? Had a case of disaster recovery gone terribly bad?
Demons in databases, mysteries in servers or maybe ghouls in the disk array, these are the terrifying tales of IT horror we would like to hear.
Let us hear your very own Endpoint Nightmare on Elm Street, Night of the Living Malware or The Device in the Woods scenarios.
