When a company does not have a large IT workforce, and, at the same time, the budget does not allow spending a large amount of money on the purchase of hardware, it is economically feasible to rent virtual servers in one of the data centers in Europe.
For a large company with a chain of petrol stations and restaurants, 24/7 service availability is critical. Moving to another data center is not an option, while a distributed IT infrastructure with high resilience and reliable DDoS protection solves the problem.
Even a short period of equipment unavailability can become a severe blow for business. If a data center is unable to provide risk protection, it might be reasonable to move servers to a provider with 99.999% availability in Europe.
Moving to a different data center is a complex process. But if there is no decent communication, the support service ignores the customer’s requests, their hard drives are in critical condition and there is a risk of incurring huge losses, migration to a new data center becomes a must.
