Considering Sacramento for colocation?
According to the Sacramento Area Flood Control Agency (SAFCA), Sacramento’s risk of flooding is the greatest of any major city in the United States. This is due to the current levee system, which was built more than 150 years ago, and the quantity of water flowing out of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. With the recent increase in storm activity in the Pacific, the risk of flooding is even greater.
In 2005 the California Air Resources Board (CARB) imposed new emission standards on businesses that use diesel generators to supply backup power. In October 2009, Pacific Gas and Electric (PG&E) reported 46 blackout areas in Sacramento. These blackouts were the result of severe storm activity.
Since rolling brownouts are increasingly more common in Sacramento and blackouts have come to be expected in severe conditions, businesses are faced with the daunting challenge of keeping their mission critical IT systems up and running. Without a reliable source of utility power or backup power, colocation providers in Sacramento struggle with uptime. Businesses that depend on their IT systems to be available for their customers, vendors and partners 24x7x365 are at significant risk in Sacramento.
