Data is the lifeblood of every modern organization. Regardless of where a company may be in its own digital transformation journey, to operate successfully, today’s businesses need real-time access to insights about their revenues and costs, products, customers, partners, employees and more. That’s why enterprise databases are often considered the organizational crown jewels, and just a single minute of database downtime can cause widespread application outage and, eventually, translate into thousands of dollars of lost opportunity.
Equinix has worked on digital transformations with its customers across various industries. One of our key findings across all this work is that too many of today’s enterprises are ignoring the realities of the physical world as they strive to design the next generation of digital-ready IT architectures.

Disaster recovery is one of those must-haves that can be incredibly expensive, resource intensive and error prone. Budget-squeezed organizations often shoot themselves in the foot placing secondary data centers too close to their primary facilities, or cutting corners on performance and redundancy in network connections, snapshots, backups and server clusters.
