Lost information or expanding local server infrastructure can cost a company a hefty sum of money. The best information technology technicians in the world cannot be prepared for every problem and creating redundant systems in a remote data center or colocation center is a way to prepare the for the unexpected. Also, backup and recovery of data has become more and more important as many companies have moved to a paperless environment. Deciding on an offsite Oregon data center or colocation center solution is one of the best ways to protect information from catastrophes.
By utilizing Rio Networks state of the art offsite Oregon data center to remotely host centralized servers, companies can add physical locations and endpoints without taking on incremental local infrastructure costs. Establishing backup and recovery procedures for data center servers is one key factor in setting up a proper disaster recovery scenario. Many companies will have in-house servers that deal with backup, but there is a need at the end of the line to provide offsite storage of information; the offsite storage is the final step for protecting information, should something happen to the building or all the data servers within the building.
Rio’s data center in Oregon has very specialized activities; it is concerned with providing constant availability and protection of the data. Unlike a company’s IT department, the data center only has those two goals (uptime and security). By focusing in those two areas, the data center can hire skilled specialists that will ensure that the data stays protected from malicious activity. A business’s IT department will often have general technicians, because each technician has to provide support for many different issues.
Offsite Backup Center
Data storage is not the only function that can be found at an Oregon data center. Some companies will use a data center as a form of shared data storage; this is for those businesses that have many remote users or people that often travel. By having access to important company information, these businessmen can always have access to necessary documents. The robust levels of security within a data center allow for secured communications. The data center will allow authorized users in, but keep those with malicious intent away from the information.
Computer Storage For Your Company
Deciding on the right Oregon data center for your company will take some research and many questions should be asked. The level of security, the size of the data center, and accessibility are all important things to specify. The availability of customer service, response time to server issues, and cost are determining factors in which data center to hire.
