August 30, 2005 - (HOSTSEARCH.COM) - As hurricane Katrina approached the Florida coast, web host Peak 10 implemented its emergency management plan to ensure five important functions in case disaster strikes:
1. Continue to provide a secure facility. Each data center will be fully monitored and managed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
2. Leverage best practices for data protection to serve its customers based on their unique products including replication and generational tape backup.
3. Access to multiple Tier 1 Internet service providers from each Peak 10 data center and connectivity from facility-to-facility via Peak 10s private OC-n network.
4. 24 hours, 7 days a week data center coverage and availability. Since all five facilities are outside mandatory evacuation areas, Peak 10s data centers will be fully staffed and able to handle customer requests and onsite needs. Generator refueling processes have been reviewed and contingency plans made in the event of fuel shortages.
5. Work with customers to ensure their disaster recovery plans are in place and activated. The company also makes available a variety of other disaster recovery resources including weather information, checklists and other pertinent links.
Peak 10 constantly monitors and tests our infrastructure to ensure we are able to provide disaster recovery solutions that ensure the availability, security and integrity of critical data and applications around the clock, said David Jones, founder and chief executive officer of Peak 10. We also try to provide assistance to businesses within the communities in which we live and work by offering complimentary services including space, bandwidth and business continuity advice before, during and after a storm strikes.
