When/how could BC/DR in a data center setting apply to me?

  • If all your computing resources are contained within one facility in a single geographic area
  • If you are space constrained and having trouble housing both your primary and back-up computing resources
  • If you are using another colocation provider that has had questionable results and need to diversify your primary and back-up services
  • If your current data center facilities reside in areas impacted by heavy snow, hurricanes, earthquakes or flooding


  • Full UPS/Generator protection with multiple diesel generators.
  • Emergency fuel delivery contracts.
  • Emergency backup generators onsite protecting load if commercial power is interrupted.


  • Fully built-out business/office suites in class A buildings.
  • Well lit and spacious area for each individual to work and feel comfortable upon demand.
  • Fully finished recovery space ready for any design needed.


  • Carrier-neutral data center.
  • Metro Cross connects with multiple SONET rings.
  • Diverse carrier feeds into the facility for extra protection of services.

Businesses used to simply plan for how to recover after a disaster or an unplanned interruption of service (i.e., disaster recovery). 

In the past 5+ years, however, the focus of many business plans has been to keep the business running and avoid the impact of disasters (i.e., business continuity). Virtualization, cloud computing and data replication have enabled access to systems and information from nearly any connected location. 

Now your teams can continue to be productive even when the office is unavailable.
