Philadelphia Technology Park (PTP), a colocation data center based in Philadelphia, understands the threat that inclement weather poses on all organizations with mission critical IT applications.
According to a release, in light of natural disasters such as 2012's Hurricane Sandy, it is important that organizations are prepared and protect their IT infrastructure and data. Philadelphia Technology Park's 25,700 square foot data center guarantees critical information stays on-line, especially during inclement weather and power outages.
"Organizations with mission critical data are encouraged to be proactive when it comes to protecting their IT infrastructure," said Corey Blanton, Chief Operating Officer of Enterprise Technology Parks. "Waiting until the last minute to protect your IT systems and data can be catastrophic to any organization with uptime compliance requirements or customer uptime expectations. Our multiple diesel generators and redundant uninterruptable power supplies equip us in keeping our customers' systems up and running regardless of the severity of the weather conditions."
Since its inception in 2010, Philadelphia Technology Park has achieved 100 percent uptime. The facility's design, testing, maintenance and audited operational procedures are far beyond what most organizations have the resources to attempt on their own.
Current customer, APM Systems, a provider of Hybrid and Private Cloud Services, whose services include, fully hosted infrastructures, hosted desktops and IT Outsourcing support for businesses with 10-1000 employees, quickly moved their IT systems to Philadelphia Technology Park in November 2012, following the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy.
APM Systems, based out of Morrisville, PA selected Philadelphia Technology Park as its primary cloud infrastructure partner because of its relative proximity, infrastructure and services. The data colocation center also provides APM Systems with bandwidth provider options and remote hands services.
"Regardless how much money we put into it, we could never cost effectively build a resilient infrastructure like the one that we could get by moving our private cloud infrastructure to Philadelphia Technology Park. [PTP has] continuous power and highly redundant bandwidth services available," said Aleks Mednis, President of APM Systems. "During Hurricane Sandy, we made the final decision to migrate our entire private cloud infrastructure to the Philadelphia facility. Within days, all of our critical client infrastructure services completely and seamlessly moved to PTP. Since moving our infrastructure, we have never experienced a power or Internet outage. I can sleep well at night knowing these fundamental resources will be available and up all the times."
"When an organization places their mission critical IT systems at Philadelphia Technology Park, they eliminate downtime caused by inclement weather. The cost of downtime can be catastrophic, resulting in unforeseen capital expense, lost revenue, loss of stakeholder and customer trust and the complete loss of critical data," said Blanton. "We encourage organizations to establish a dialogue with Philadelphia Technology Park to learn how we can keep their data up and running 24/7 in a secure facility."
Philadelphia Technology Park is a 25,700 square foot colocation data center that serves to house mission critical data for its customers.
