Uptime Assessment

Natural Disaster Low-Risk Area

Uptime Institute Regional Assessment

The Uptime Institute (now a part of 451 Research) published this: Natural Disaster Risk white paper assessing the United States as a whole for the various risk factors one should consider when selecting a location for mission critical assets.

Buffalo, while not in the lowest risk regions, is, through its years and years of practice, functionally a very low risk region for a properly designed and constructed data center. Western NY is at low risk of Earthquakes, Hurricanes and Tornados. While we certainly do receive our fair share (though not as much as we used too) of snow, wind and thunderstorms, these risks are very manageable. Elm Data Center is situated on emergency snow routes (which are first to be plowed) and we have personnel which live within walking distance of the facility should weather conditions prevent others from getting to work. Our facility has been standing solidly for over 100 years suffering no issues due to snow, wind or rain. We maintain a vigilant maintenance program to ensure that we will not succumb to weather any time soon.
