San Francisco Data Centers
Researching San Francisco Bay Area data centers?
According to the U.S. Geological Survey the San Francisco Bay Area is one of the hardest hit regions for seismic activity. There are literally hundreds of earthquakes, varying in intensity, that relentlessly rock the San Francisco Bay Area. Experts are in agreement that the next “Big One” is not a matter of “if”, but “when.”
Buildings in the San Francisco Bay Area need to be structurally reinforced and safeguards have to be put in place to ensure connectivity and continuity of power remains unaffected. But depending on the provider and the age of the data center, there is a good chance these safeguards are not in place.
In addition to seismic activity, the San Francisco Bay Area regulatory environment is one of the harshest in the nation. In 2005 the California Air Resources Board (CARB) imposed new emission standards on businesses that use diesel generators to supply backup power. This presents San Francisco data centers with a critical roadblock that could significantly impact uptime.
Between the environmental and regulatory risks present in the San Francisco Bay Area, businesses cannot afford to gamble with the availability of their mission critical IT systems and applications. Clearly, there are better places for a data center.
