Infrastructure Reliability

Infrastructure reliability describes all of the measures in place that enable the availability of IT. This includes data centres, power infrastructure, communication structures, air conditioners, protection against natural disasters, access protection and much more.

But there are also a number of software factors such as spam, viruses, DOS attacks and all the things which could have a business critical result.

The basic component of infrastructure reliability is the physical data and system security based on a special protected data center. The data center protects against a lot of physical influences like water, fire or terrorism. The data center of the future will be an autonomous unit with a high level of redundancy for all infrastructure services, but the construction of a legacy data center is a important step to increase the availability of the whole IT infrastructure.
