Frequently asked questions
When companies outsource their servers, they immediately reap the benefits of integrated, automated data backup and recovery. There may also be virtually no downtime, depending on the type of data centre, provided that the server is mirrored at least once, i.e. the backup server steps in if a problem occurs. Also, data centres are better protected from hacking attacks and viruses. Server outsourcing is suitable for companies undergoing rapid growth and start-ups whose growth rate is still uncertain. Outsourcing provides highly versatile and scalable IT with monthly billing as needed.
At regular intervals, you can read in the logistics press that system failures have paralysed this or that company for several hours or even days. A medium catastrophe for those affected and an important topic. As a rule, a data centre offers a particularly high level of fail-safety from a certain level - one speaks of so-called tiers. This is because the servers are redundant: If one fails, the other takes over. The downtimes are minimal.
