Considering San Jose for colocation?
Silicon Valley is home to some of the largest technology companies on the planet including Google, HP and Oracle. It is also home to a major fault zone. According to the U.S. Geological Survey, San Jose sits on top of an active and very hazardous fault line. In a given week, San Jose and the surrounding area is rocked by seismic activity with varying degrees of magnitude.
In addition to being on a fault line, San Jose is also at risk from tsunamis. On October 7, 2009 a powerful 7.8 earthquake in the South Pacific triggered a regional tsunami alert from the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center. This was the second alert issued in two weeks. The devastation caused by a tsunami would put a major on strain power systems and network connectivity. This, in turn, would significantly hamper a colocation provider’s ability to keep mission critical IT systems up and running.
San Jose poses too many risks for mission critical IT infrastructure. Businesses that rely on always on connectivity to their partners, vendors and customers cannot afford downtime. San Jose is not a viable option for colocation.
