San Diego Data Centers
Researching San Diego data centers?
According to the Associated Press, California is one of the world’s most seismically active regions. More than 300 faults crisscross the state, which sits atop two of Earth’s major tectonic plates, the Pacific and North American plates. This should be especially concerning for businesses that require always-on availability for their mission critical IT systems.
In addition to the severe seismic activity in the San Diego area, there is constant risk of wildfires. San Diego Gas and Electric (SDG&E) has petitioned the California Public Utilities Commission to cut electricity to residential communities and businesses to limit potential ignition sources and stop the spread of the fires. This move, if approved, could significantly affect businesses reliant on a reliable source of power to keep their IT systems available.
On September 29, 2009, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) issued a tsunami advisory for the California coast following a powerful earthquake that struck the South Pacific near American Samoa. Tsunami awareness has increased on the West coast, particularly in coastal California, since 2004 when the earthquake in Indonesia caused a tsunami that killed more than 200,000 people.
The threat of earthquake, wildfire and tsunami should be seriously considered by businesses considering San Diego data centers. As consumers have come to expect 24x7xForever™ availability from the businesses they transact with, minimizing downtime should be a priority.
