Do you know where your cloud infrastructure sits? You might know which region, or which data centre, but have you actually seen where your cloud servers are hosted? Do you know what happens in the event of an outage? Have you experienced, first hand, the security protocols of the data centre, and have you been shown the systems that are in place to ensure resilience and uptime?
These are all questions that you should be asking yourself, and asking your cloud provider, if you want to be certain that your chosen solution is right for your needs.
Cloud solutions are capable of protecting against and dealing with a potential catastrophe, but it’s important to know exactly what plans are in place and how the measures taken will cope. Cloud security, data management and cloud availability must be taken into account as part of a modern cloud strategy.
No system is free of failures. No matter how good the process, or the measures taken to address the risks, the worst can still happen. Which is why it’s so important that your cloud provider has the confidence to show you first hand, exactly what they have in place to guarantee maximum uptime
At Teledata, we offer full data centre tours not just to our clients, but also to our clients’ clients. So if you’re a CSP or MSP looking for a data centre partner, rather than a data centre provider, then we could be right for you.
We can assist in your sales process, taking your customers and potential customers on either virtual or face-to-face tours of our Manchester data centre facility, showing them everything from security systems and our NSI Gold Approved SOC, to the data halls, UPS rooms and our on-site energy storage facility.
This can really help customers to get a true picture of where their cloud data will sit. It helps to build relationships and trust, which in turn create solid working relationships that last.
