Every data center admin knows about the myriad of ways to take a data center down: fires, power and network equipment failures, and the activities of hackers and cyber criminals.
And many of those risks are already accounted for in data center design, site selection and redundant equipment. But the real nightmare fuel comes from data center outages caused by the weird stuff – things like electrostatic discharge, ‘zinc whiskers’ or even a local raccoon that has decided that your NOC is an excellent place to raise its growing family.
When you deal with incredibly complex buildings with unlimited points of failure, life gets messy. With outages causing financial losses, SLA breaches and customer churn, no data center operator can ignore the physical security of their fragile systems, even when things get freaky.
We’ll take a deep dive into the five unexpected sources of data center outages that you might not be guarding against – what they are, why they happen and how to monitor and prevent those critical failure points when possible.
Our experts will arm you with the secrets behind the dark arts of data fail points and reduce the threats to your uptime. In this deep dive, we’ll look at the lesser-known causes of data center outages and find out how you can protect against them.
In this webinar you will:
- Discover five causes of unpredictable data center outages
- Learn from case studies of real-world data center outages caused by things you’d never expect
- Understand how to protect your data center against those lesser-known threats
- Prepare against outages in your own data center
- Recognize other practical ways to improve uptime
Join us for a one-hour discussion as we explore the unintended catastrophes that can affect any data center at any moment. Our experts will be available for a live Q&A for your critical questions.
