Linxdatacenter: how to ensure ten years of DC uptime
Linxdatacenter in Saint Petersburg reported ten years of uptime in September 2021.
The key task of any data center is to minimize the number and length of downtime periods. Uptime Institute, the global DC expert community, notes positive dynamics in this field: the share of data centers worldwide reporting serious interruptions dropped from 11% in 2020 to 6% in 2021.
At the same time new risks appear and require attention. For example, there is an increase of disruptions caused by failures of the software responsible for administration and monitoring of DC systems.
Gartner reports that the average cost of downtime for business amounted to $5,600 per minute in 2021. Taking into account varieties in the specifics and size of enterprises, their losses caused by the DC downtime may vary in the range from $140,000 to $540,000 per hour.
“Data centers today compete in providing their customers with advanced IT services and maintaining the highest possible level of uptime to guarantee uninterrupted accessibility of these services. The complexity of the task constantly grows with the increase in the number of IT systems whose operation does not allow even the minimum downtime and briefest interruptions,” comments Olga Sokolova, General Director Linxdatacenter.

“Constant work on improvement of management processes of engineering systems, analysis of own mistakes in the maintenance processes, as well as study of international practices allowed us to spend ten years in a completely disaster-free mode. Further goals in this direction include strengthening of competencies that have ensured this result, and scaling of this experience to future Linxdatacenter sites,” comments Taras Chirkov, DC Manager Linxdatacenter Saint Petersburg.
