How important is the location of a maintenance partner in a networked world?
The world is moving ever closer together thanks to digital networking. Distances and locations are becoming less and less important. Data centers make any resource and software available anytime and anywhere. For the user, this state of affairs is ideal, as services can be ordered on a performance basis. This reduces costs and shifts issues such as provisioning and security completely to the service provider. As long as there is an appropriately performing internet connection, the services can be accessed anytime and anywhere.
But what happens when there is a problem? When a failure occurs in the data center, the location of the maintenance partner becomes one of the most important factors. If users expect permanent availability of services, the distance from the technician and spare part to the faulty system becomes critical. The longer the faulty system is not repaired or replaced, the more revenue is lost and the greater the user's displeasure.
