UK BUSINESSES CONCERNED ABOUT LIFE CYCLE OF THEIR CLOUDS AS WARMER WEATHER SET TO CONTINUE
LONDON, U.K. – 1st April, 2014 – With temperatures set to soar by the end of the month, UK businesses using cloud computing are concerned about the blue skies and sunny spells ahead. The Met Office has predicted temperatures of 23 degrees for April and a severe lack of clouds in South-East England, where a large number of UK cloud providers are based.
With this in mind, UK businesses are being encouraged to look to the skies and assess the forecasts when making decisions about where to store their mission-critical data at this time.
Campbell Williams, group strategy and marketing director or Six Degrees Group (6DG), said: "Working closely with a cloud services provider that can put in place a multiple location solution is vital for businesses that want to ensure the safety of their data and optimise cloud performance. If one cloud in a warmer area disappears, the secondary site can be ready to take over operations. "
He continued: “At 6DG we have implemented a unique ‘don’t follow the sun’ solution. Our cloud teams are experts at moving workloads to locations with the right meteorological conditions. Temperature control is also in our DNA, it’s in our name. Six degrees is the ideal temperature for cloud formation so we’re the logical choice of supplier for UK businesses.”
