DEAC data centers infrastructure guarantees stable operation
With hot weather conditions, constant operation of computer equipment located in limited premises is subject to additional load and overheating, which can cause partial of full equipment damage. But even in these hot days, temperature in European data center operator data centers "Riga" and "Grizinkalns" server rooms does not exceed +22° C. It guarantees safe and reliable equipment operation of any company. Overall a professional data center infrastructure significantly reduces the possibilities of companies’ business downtime and protects businesses from large financial losses, as shown by recent researches.
"Those who are unaware may think that such hardware as switches, servers or data storages may operate under the same circumstances as a man. But in reality, inadequate room parameters may cause irreversible damages to the server. To enable the company maintain the servers in appropriate premises it should consider huge financial, time and human resources. Firstly, it needs to explore the rooms - what is the temperature, what kind of circumstances affect it, what risks exist. Secondly, when all required factors are found, to ensure that required temperature, humidity, continuous electrical supply is provided in the premises, all kind of risks avoided. And of course, you need to maintain the necessary conditions 24 hours a day, 7 days a week," says the DEAC CEO Andris Gailitis, adding that in DEAC data centers temperature all year round regardless of weather is +22° C.
Business continuity is based on security of information and data systems. Data center operators around the world invest millions of Euro to ensure the highest level of climate control and to avoid the different risks to servers. "Servers and other equipment that is stored appropriately serve longer, without interruptions regardless of the different external conditions day in and day out. Conditions created in DEAC data centers ensure, that the customer’s servers, data and hence the business is completely safe. Therefore, we offer all interested in these hot summer months a special price to move their equipment from the offices to DEAC data centers and to compare their performance before and after," urges A. Gailitis.
Study results show, that in case of hardware breakdown in the company downtime caused financial losses are ranging from a few hundred up to five million dollars per hour. The amount of loss depends on the company's size and its field of business. IT consulting and analytics company "Gartner Group", for example, investigated that in U.S. server downtime causes two of the five business bankruptcies within five years from the accident date.
Continuity of servers’ operations stored in DEAC data centers are guaranteed by APC Symmetra MW UPS equipment, SDMO diesel generators, Emerson Network Power's climate control system (a powerful unit with its own pump station and 29 tons of cooling liquid).
