9th November: The Concept of Business Continuity: Why a Disaster Recovery Plan Isn't Enough Read more
DC Two's Osborne Park data centre is conveniently located approx. 6 km north/west of the Perth CBD, buried in the side of a hill and formed within a concrete bunker. The rather non-descript exterior opens into an Aladdin's cave of technology that has been carefully crafted to fully support both Cloud and colocation needs.
The data centre is corner-stoned by Tier III principles and was recently put to the ultimate test when power services were lost for a period of two weeks after a storm front passed through Perth during February 2017. With our own disaster/ business continuity plan deployed, the data centre was forced to run on diesel generators, delivering 100% uptime for all clients, for a 2-week period.
Very few data centres can say they have run on their backup systems for 2 days, next to none have either run or survived for 2 weeks which is a testament to the design of the centre, the efforts of our engineers and the processes in place to support proven un-interrupted operations.
Paradigm Technologies has been working with John and the team at DC Two for the past 2 years. They have been instrumental in allowing us to establish 'cloud' offerings for our clients. We now have a number of customers whose core data and server infrastructure is located on the DC Two platform.
The simple and competitive pricing model they use makes quoting and billing a breeze. Nothing is too much trouble for them and no matter the problem or requirement, DC Two will find a way.
