Risk Mitigation through Data Center Redundancy

Continual data center uptime is the new DR, and has morphed into the data center best practices of redundant infrastructure, failover technologies, and secondary sites.


To address our critical systems’ failover requirements, our primary data center connects to a co-location/failover model with real time data synchronization.

Our dedicated, self-healing 10-gigabyte fiber ring is distinct from the DBSi network to provide a redundant connection between Main Campus and DBSi.

Our independent fiber ring addresses not only capacity and latency issues, but also health care data security and privacy requirements as it:

  • Touches TJU’s failover site
  • Intersects with the campus fiber backbone
  • Touches the outsourced data center directly at DBSi’s facility
  • Loops back to Main Campus
