“When it Comes to DR and BCP, Preventive Maintenance is Absolutely Critical”- Brad Ratushny, INetU

As Hurricane Sandy ravaged East Coast last year, causing more than $68 billion in damage , it also brought significant attention to the disaster readiness of data centers. Various data center facilities struggled with power problems amid widespread flooding and utility outages, immediately impacting the businesses that rely on those resources. While several data centers who downplayed the adverse geological contingencies were caught completely off-guard, various state-of-the-art facilities with meticulous DR planning also found it difficult to stay up and running in face of the unprecedented scale of Sandy.

“CtrlS is Asia’s Largest and India’s Only Tier IV Certified Datacenter”- Prashant, CtrlS
