A prominent data center service provider in Europe disclosed that one of its key bases of data centers in France was suspended due to a severe fire disaster. It is estimated that about 3.6 million websites were affected due to the incident.
In the face of disasters, the operation of data center is bound to be affected, from the suspension of website to the worst, loss of important data. Under the threats of natural disasters and cyberattacks, enterprises have no choice but to deploy comprehensive business continuity and disaster recovery plans to avoid hindering business operations and reduce losses caused by accidents. But, what is an effective business continuity and disaster recovery plan?
DRaaS for business continuity
The first step is to evaluate the IT infrastructure of an enterprise. To incorporate diverse business needs, some enterprises may deploy physical and virtual servers at the same time. Therefore, it is important to consider whether a disaster recovery solution can handle multiple scenarios when choosing a service.
Furthermore, the recovery after a disaster must act fast. The data must be automatically transferred to the backup server for restoration as quickly as possible to avoid data loss.
Some enterprise may not have a well-trained IT team that can handle data backup and disaster recovery. A service provider with a professional disaster recovery team can not only deliver reliable data backup and disaster recovery management, but also arrange regular drills to test the effectiveness of the disaster recovery plan. With the help of managed services, companies can focus more on business development.
Reliable Cloud Data Center Accelerates Digital Transformation
With the rapid digital transformation, business data is not only stored in the internal database but also managed in the Internet data center or the infrastructure of service providers. Therefore, enterprises must be cautious when selecting data center service providers to store their confidential data to minimize security risks.
A trusted data center service provider is not limited to meet the basic data center standards such as fire protection, cooling systems and physical security measures, but also has the capability to handle demands of cloud infrastructure, process business-critical applications and provide secure access to business data.
