Imagine you are a retailer set to open the doors on Boxing Day and your network and computers crash. Maybe you can take cash and draw up hand written receipts? But what if you run an online store? You won’t even know who was “standing outside your door”.What if a disaster such as a flood struck your office knocking out your entire computer network, servers and the data stored on them? Maybe you thought you had mitigated by risk by paying a third party hosting provider but you learn their data center was damaged during the flood and you have the same problems? You’re in trouble.

There are four forms of redundancy:
Network: Providers have multiple internet carriers connected to their facilities in case one provider experiences problems.
Hardware: Backups of physical pieces of server hardware to replace components that fail.
Power: Multiple power sources to keep servers and data centers operating.
Lastly there is Geographic Redundancy.
Geographically redundant hosting providers have multiple data centers located in different geographic regions. This ensures that if one data center fails, your business applications will continue to run and your data is safe on IT infrastructure located in in another facility.
Sphinx InfoTech provides you with consulting and the guidance to identify hosting solutions providers that offer geographic redundancy to avoid disruptions due to regional disasters. We can also take oversee implementation of new hosting solutions and manage these vendors on your behalf so you can focus on running your business instead of dealing with IT issues.
