According to the Disaster Recovery Journal, most data centers are in major cities, and these cities are high risk for both natural and manmade disasters.
Major metro areas in the eastern, central and western United States are vulnerable to extreme weather hazards. Hurricanes bring widespread flooding and destructive winds to the Gulf and east coast cities. Tornadoes wreak havoc on the central United States (tornado alley). Earthquakes and firestorms menace our western cities. Not to mention, blizzards that bury our northern cities.
All of these extreme weather hazards can cause loss of power, Internet and vital personnel for even the most “hardened” data centers in their path. The FIBERTOWN Data Center is hurricane safe and conveniently located 90 minutes north of Houston.
