Back-up Data Centre

Do I need to be fussy about provisioning our back-up data centre as we were with our primary data centre?

Back-up data centres can be cold, warm, or hot:

  • A cold site has equipment only. It requires set-up and data to restore service.
  • A hot site is a complete duplication of the main data centre, with operating hardware, active WAN connections and synchronized data so restoral of service is almost seamless, requiring only staff relocation. Sometimes the capacity is smaller than the original of the data centre.
  • A warm site is something in between.
