If you are about to choose a data center colocation facility, you need to pause for a moment and consider several factors before finalizing. Most people tend to ignore something that is important but not so obvious – the redundancy and reliability of the infrastructure. Data centers that have these features ensure that they have systems in place to support uptime percentages and ensure that the resources are distributed across the system. So, how do data center resiliency and redundancy help your business?

Enhance Availability

One of the main benefits of data center redundancy is that it helps by enhancing availability. Issues that normally affect businesses like network problems, hardware failure issues, faults in the application etc. can cause disruption in the functioning of your servers. This can subsequently result in your business and clients not being able to access services. Redundancy and reliability ensure that the systems and staff are in place and will troubleshoot the moment there is a sign of any disruption. With services continuing without any disruption and loads being distributed evenly, fewer emergencies can affect your business. 

Help Secure Important Data 

Another important benefit arising out of data center redundancy and reliability is the protection of your critical data. The advent of virtualization has its own complexities that have made server security a big challenge. The data that is stored on your drives can get corrupted at any time or can face hardware issues. The data is also liable to be hacked by illegal hackers.  Everyone is a target for cyber attackers who don’t care about the size or domain they target. 

Best Server Security

Hackers have learned to keep up with technology and can easily hack into your servers and get access to highly sensitive data. Data center redundancy offers unmatched server security and help keep all sensitive information safe. Our aim is to keep the hosted data safe and secure and that’s why we have measures for complete data backup and recovery. In case of server failure at any time, you can recover your critical data so that the normal functioning of your business is never affected. 

Easier to Upgrade

It is important for any business to scale at some point of time and that is when you will need to upgrade your servers and other components of infrastructure. Dealing with an upgrade in a traditional setup is rather difficult as it is a tedious affair when most systems have to go offline and some operations need to be suspended during such upgrades. However, having a disaster recovery site helps you upgrade easily with no interruptions whatsoever to the functioning of your business. Your clients will continue to be served without any disruption during the upgrade process, which will certainly keep them happy.
