IT operations are a crucial aspect of most organizational operations around the world. The main concern is business continuity and the real question is: what is the cost of downtime? What’s the business impact if my services are not available?
Each organisation has its own datacentre requirements from different aspects: availability, security, scalability, energy efficiency… We at BigData, we work together with our customers to identify these requirements and refine them to achieve what’s best for their business.
To achieve an operationally reliable, highly available Data Center, integration of all the technologies involved is the key. Aspects such as fire safety, access control, secure power supplies and climate control are vital if a DataCenter is to be operationally reliable. In addition, organisational measures such as surveillance and facility control and maintenance need to be put in place.
IT and infrastructure experts often speak two different languages, even inside their own organisations. However, it is becoming increasingly important that Data Center security and availability should be planned collectively. IT infrastructure needs technical infrastructure.
