What’s Your Failover Strategy?

September 1, 2016

50% of businesses that suffer from a major IT disaster without a disaster recovery plan in place never reopen for business, according to an American Marketing Association report. In fact, the Ponemon Institute estimates the cost of downtime to be $7,900 per minute and rising.

Disaster recovery plans using multiple, interconnected data centers can ensure your company has the operational redundancy to provide uninterrupted uptime in the event of man-made or natural disaster. More and more companies are choosing to offload IT production activities and data back-up initiatives to CyrusOne data centers.

Leveraging CyrusOne’s National Internet Exchange (IX) to implement a multi-site site failover strategy across geographic regions enables highly-connected redundancy to ensure peace of mind across regions or metro areas. CyrusOne also provides Class-A office space for work area recovery in alternate locations on the same platform.
