What is geo-redundancy and why is it important?
Geo-redundancy is the physical separation of data centers between geographic regions. It replicates data between two geographically distant sites so that applications can switch from one site to another in the event of an unexpected outage or catastrophic event (such as fires, earthquakes, tornadoes, etc.) and still maintain the configuration data necessary for SLA enforcement available at the secondary, remote site. By physically separating servers in geographically diverse data centers, customers are guaranteed to have at least one location up and running.
With five data center locations across Quebec and British Columbia, eStrxture’s customers benefit not only from geo-redundant protection but also from an ever-growing ecosystem of network, cloud and managed services providers as well as a commitment to environmental responsibility, and high security and compliance standards.
