Data Center Relocation Risk Assessment Process Summary


Due to the high stakes involved in a move out of a Data Center (DC) to a new location, a Risk Assessment is highly recommended prior to the move being initiated.  The Data Center Relocation “Risk Assessment” Process identifies what can go wrong and the steps identified to mitigate the potential issues.

Business and IT Interruption Recovery Planning

Introduction

Business, governments and government agencies must be prepared for unexpected business interruptions of all types, from a supplier’s inability to supply, to the loss of a critical customer to a breakdown in a business process such as a temporary IT application outage or a loss of key personnel affecting the ability to execute that process. Proper proactive preparation prevents business outages of extended duration and provides the ability to quickly recover.

Unplanned Business Interruptions

Disaster Recovery Plan Consists of 2 primary inputs- Business Impact Assessment and Risk Analysis

Business Impact Analysis and Risk Assessment are both important components of BC/DR Plans. However, Business Impact Analysis should be carried out before attempting Risk Assessment. Once both these components are in place, it is easier to formulate a sound strategy and plan for Business Continuity / Disaster Recovery.

The four most important risk scenarios that affect business operations of an organization are:

  1. Production site is partly or fully destroyed or cannot be accessed
  2. Loss of data and / or other critical records
  3. Loss of IT functions due to application software errors, glitches, viruses, power outages etc.
  4. Loss of skills due to incapacitation, pandemics, death or mission-critical staff leaving for greener pastures

Unplanned System Outages

Disaster Recovery Plan Consists of 2 primary inputs- Business Impact Assessment and Risk Analysis

Are you unprepared for unpredictable and unexpected events which can expose your systems to unplanned outages? Planning for negative events strengthens your ability to respond and reduces your exposure to high losses if you are unprepared. There is an obvious parallel between the theory of unpredictable and unexpected events and the need for disaster preparedness for your critical IT assets.

How effective are your Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Plans???

Disaster Recovery is the process an organization uses to recover access to their software, data, hardware, and/or processes that are needed to resume the performance of normal, critical business functions after the event of either a natural disaster, or a disaster caused by humans, cyber-attacks, or an unexpected outage of a service or component of a business preventing the business from providing service to their customers as expected.

Data Center Consolidation

A data center consolidation strategy is important in order to:

  • reduce the number of devices in a single data center
  • reduce the global footprint with fewer data centers and locations to manage
  • provide a wide range of cost and efficiency improvements for the data center(s)

Data Centre Cooling

Data centre cooling is one of the major challenges faced by data centre managers because high temperatures and excess heat can severely and negatively affect its components lifespan and performance. As organizations keep adding computing equipment, data centres are demanding more electricity and producing higher heat. Increased cooling and electricity demands are increasing cooling and power costs and hampering productivity of data centers, and organizations must seriously consider investing in alternative cooling solutions for efficient heat and equipment management.

Minimize the impacts of Critical Application Outages

Much is written about business continuity and recovery of operations after a disaster. What about recovery of a system or application that experiences a lengthy outage and negatively impacts the day-to-day operations of a business?

FACT: 25% of businesses that close after a natural disaster never reopen

FACT: 40 percent of small businesses never reopen their doors following a disaster

I have yet to see the statistics identifying the impact of a lengthy outage of a critical application on a business. I am willing to bet that the disaster recovery statistics are representative of this scenario. So, what to do and how to mitigate this risk?
