Let’s face facts – the modern data center has become an absolute integral part of any organization. We are no longer working with single data center nodes. Now, organizations must find ways to be truly distributed and ensure the highest resiliency for their data and infrastructure. A major part of this process is selecting the right data center based on the appropriate risk factors.
Data center platforms must be built not only around infrastructural best practices – but geographic and risk mitigation factors must be taken into consideration as well. Far too often, geographical factors are overlooked in site selection activities, or at best are incompletely examined. And most data center providers, quite frankly, don’t do much to help in that process. Many data centers produce information about hardware reliability or facility security, but often geography as a measure of a facility’s ability to competently serve its clients is neglected.
In this white paper , FORTRUST examines several key factors in selecting the right type of data center environment for your organization. These factors include:
Although environmental variables are extremely important – it’s also crucial to take into consideration the availability of resources. Download this white paper today  to learn about:
As the data center continues to play a key part for any organizations – managers must take into consideration the environment and geographic impact of a data center site.
