What is Geographic Redundancy?
Geographic redundancy is a service that serves as a fail-over protocol in an instance of datacenter failure. Through geo redundancy businesses can reroute their data to another datacenter.
Why does Geographic Redundancy matter in small businesses?
An example includes Office 365 that is primarily an SaaS service hosted in the cloud. When large scale datacenters are functioning incorrectly they typically have geographic redundancy active. Let’s say Office 365 is hosted at their Washington data center, a flood completely wipes them out. Using geo redundancy Microsoft reroutes their datacenter to the California datacenter (note the locations of these datacenters are false).
