Considering Los Angeles for colocation?
The wildfires that scarred Los Angeles County in 2009 have stripped vegetation from many of the hills surrounding both residential communities and businesses. Coupled with the big Pacific storms that are common for the area, the fear of landslides is on the rise. Flash flood warnings are becoming commonplace. Businesses that depend on always on availability for their mission critical IT systems are being threatened by loss of utility power and significant downtime.
According to the U.S. Geological Survey there are more than 100 earthquakes that strike southern California each week. This level of seismic activity creates even greater threats to power availability and system uptime.
In addition to environmental threats, Los Angeles businesses are heavily regulated – especially those that operate stationary diesel engines. Effective January 2005, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) imposed new emission standards on stationary diesel engines that would limit their operation and placement. Since backup power is supplied primarily by diesel generators, these regulations pose a significant threat to Los Angeles colocation providers and the businesses that rely on them to keep their mission-critical IT system up and running.
