It’s largely about that familiar real estate cliché: location, location, location. A big way that we help clients minimize their risk is by locating our data centers in places not prone to disasters — like Phoenix and Dallas. Even when clients need to be in more “exposed” areas such as coastal cities, we strategically select sites that are robust and away from flood plains and other danger zones. For example, our Houston data center is located in the only downtown building that did not lose power during Hurricane Ike. Many of our Houston-area customers came to Internap looking for a place to plug in their laptops when their offices were drowned out.
Our data centers and services seamlessly support corporate business continuity programs. Our geographic diversity gives you a choice of alternative locations to connect to should something unexpected happen in your area. We offer flexible power solutions that include flat-rated power service as well as metered-power service that “kicks in” when your business continuity program is activated. Choose Internap as your primary and secondary location, and keep your billing on one invoice.
Take redundancy to the next level
As another option for business continuity, bridge into our Performance IP™ service, which uses our patented Managed Internet Route Optimizer™ (MIRO) to dynamically route around network delays inherent in the Internet. This routing control software dynamically evaluates critical performance factors among many possible paths to select the best route to the intended destination.
