Data Center data replication hardware that’s Fire, Bomb, Blast, Water Proof…
Let’s play the pretend game. Let’s pretend there is a catastrophic disaster that causes your primary data center to become a pile of rubble. Would a disaster of that magnitude cripple your entire company?
Data loss is a real problem. Look at Ma.gnolia, they had significant data loss problems, and their facility wasn’t even on fire or under water!
I was recently introduced to a company called Axxana that makes a product called the Axxana Phoenix System. Their device is literally bomb proof. Fire proof. Submersible to 30′ underwater; and can take a direct hit of a pointed 500lb rod from 10 feet away. This device can withstand 40 G of shock and sit in a 2000 degree fire for an hour…all while transmitting your data via a cellular network to your backup site.
This may sound like overkill, but if this device were located in any of the buildings that have been hit by terrorists in the last 30 years (9/11, Oklahoma City, etc…) that data would have continued to transmit, sync, and reduced the residual damage caused by catastrophes.
