eHDF checks data centre health
eHosting DataFort conducts data centre health check program
eHosting DataFort has completed a program of data centre ‘health checks' for enterprise organisation in the region.
The program assessed security and disaster recovery preparedness across a number of criteria, with eHDF staff carrying out one-day site visits and assessments at the organisation's data centres.
Among the areas looked at during the assessments were data centre environment, security infrastructure and disaster recovery plans, with the aim of identifying gaps in resilience, existing tier levels and service level agreements. The assessment also examined the capacity, availability, reliability and security of the data centres while looking at ways they could be reconfigured to improve the efficiency of energy consumption. Once the assessment was completed, eHDF passed on an analysis of the findings, with a risk report and recommendations to the end users.
Yasser Zeineldin, CEO of eHosting DataFort, said: "At the heart of IT lies the data centre, a central component that organizations heavily depend on to ensure their business operations remain uninterrupted. At the same time, while information systems are responsible for carrying out daily operations, any serious threats from cyber attacks, human errors or natural disasters can heavily impact the overall business and erode overall revenue.
"As part of our commitment to creating greater awareness, eHosting DataFort believes regular assessments of a company's data centre, security infrastructure and disaster recovery plan will help corporations realize the potential threats and losses a business is exposed to every day. We are confident our free consultations offered organizations a risk-free insight into gauging the need for introspection and explore options for taking corrective action in improving their overall IT environment.
