01 Sep LOGIX Fiber Networks Expands Data Center Business Continuity Assets to Help Customers Keep Operating When Disaster Strikes
LOGIX builds office space in its data centers, giving customers a place to work during disasters.
HOUSTON, Aug. 29, 2018 — LOGIX Fiber Networks, the largest independent fiber network provider in Texas, has rapidly expanded the number of data centers it operates over the past year. The company has further strengthened its Business Continuity assets by offering its data centers more leasable offices, cubicles, and other support tools that customers need if forced to shift business operations to a LOGIX data center during a disaster.
While natural occurrences such as hurricanes are often top-of-mind when people think of disasters, a broad array of events can activate Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery plans, including working from a remote location.
“One of our customers’ building shut down due to a plumbing problem, and it was several days before they could return, so they worked from a LOGIX data center instead. It’s essential to have a place from where you can keep your business open and revenue flowing during a disaster,” said Dennis Chatagnier, Director of Data Centers for LOGIX. “Data is safe and available thanks to Disaster Recovery plans, but as we saw recently with Hurricane Harvey, offices and even homes were unreachable, so being able to set up shop in our data centers is a valuable option for our customers.”
LOGIX operates high-performance data centers throughout Texas, including in Dallas/Ft. Worth, Austin, and Houston; additionally, LOGIX connects to more than 100 other data centers in Texas.
LOGIX data centers are carrier neutral, offer customized approaches to cabinet setup and colocation terms, and essential amenities such as advanced biometric security, up to 3 megawatts of power per pod, and a variety of cooling technologies and facility features designed to ensure uptime of customer equipment.
Whether it’s a natural disaster or unscheduled business interruption, the key for businesses is to have a well-thought-out Business Continuity plan that includes Disaster Recovery.
“People tend to use ‘Disaster Recovery’ as a catch-all phrase, but it’s more focused on remote data backup. Businesses can see their Disaster Recovery plan work, only to watch their broader Business Continuity plan fail,” Chatagnier said. “Disaster Recovery truly is a subset of what should be a company’s comprehensive Business Continuity strategy, and those plans should include a location from which even a skeleton crew can keep a company up and running no matter what the world throws at us.”
In addition to its data center operations, LOGIX has more than 6,200 route miles of network spanning 225,000 fiber miles, which serves more than 12,500 enterprise and carrier customers across Texas. For more information about solutions from LOGIX, contact 1-888-505-6449 or [email protected].
