In the information technology field, reliability is paramount to a company’s survival and their ability to thrive. Those companies who employ a colocation data centre are far more reliable than those who do not. Any IT company with a low degree of reliability will not have a very long shelf life. Customers want to know when they use a company’s product it will work every time. With every click of their mouse. When that doesn’t happen, customers will seek alternative sources to meet their needs that are there for every click, every time.
Those companies with a single server, in a single, physical location, are incredibly shortsighted. What happens if the power goes out to the building or there is a fire or flood that damages the server hardware? While many companies have redundant backup locations offsite, they fail to consider the ramifications of not having a redundant server location too. Think of it this way: What good is backed up data when there is no server to restore it to?
So, how do you avoid these problems?
