Colocation’s role in Disaster Recovery & Business ContinuityPosted: July 26, 2012
From DCS Planning’s partner CoreXchange Colocation Services:
CoreXchange deeply admires companies like DCS Planning that provide well-crafted solutions that protect businesses and organizations from painful and deeply damaging data loss.
Every company should have thoughtful, thorough business continuity and disaster recovery plans like the ones offered by DCS Planning. Every company needs to invest in risk assessment and a business impact analyses — again, just like the services offered by DCS Planning.
But every expertly crafted disaster recovery and business continuity plan needs to be built upon a cutting-edge, fault-tolerant network infrastructure that’s ready to withstand the digital age’s most nefarious elements.
Colocation provides a multitude of elements — including hardened space, highly managed environmentals, power & cooling, physical security, and connectivity to telecommunications and network service providers — to better protect and manage companies’ servers and networking equipment.
For example, CoreXchange’s data centers are supported by state-of-the-art power systems featuring redundant 1.5 MQ generators and four 500-ton chillers. This nearly eliminates the possibility of electrical downtime and gives us tight control over the internal environment. We also leave no stone unturned when it comes to security: Our center includes perimeter fencing, 24/7staffed check-in station with mantrap, and internal and external video surveillance.
Colocation with CoreXchange along with a solid plan from DCS Planning can be the bedrock on which your company’s data security, viability and peace of mind rests.
