Midwest colocation: the easy way to more uptime

Midwest colocation (outsource data center) is one of the simplest ways companies can drive more uptime from their critical systems, while at the same time reducing data center costs.

One of our newest customers was tired of the chronic power outages in their office space.  They did not want to install a generator, because it was too expensive and because their landlord would not allow it.  The outages were causing downtime to their customer-facing systems, and it was affecting credibility.

After talking to them about their needs, they moved their critical systems to Lifeline’s affordable colocation facilities.  Since they have moved in, they have not had a moment’s worth of downtime, either on their servers on with connectivity.  They have the advantage of a hardened data center with redundant power, cooling, security and compliance for a fraction of the cost to build it.
