There is a higher probability that most data centers will be affected by a virus, hardware failure, power failure or upgrade gone wrong than by a disastrous weather-related event like wind, fire or rain. However, having a co-location and planning for the smallest interruption of business operations will help ensure ability to provide the same level of service in any circumstance.
