Diversity and Redundancy are both vitally important to Enterprises and their business dealings. With data and services moving so quickly in today’s digital age, the need for these services to be always on with virtually no downtime is paramount. Using only one ISP for internet connectivity could lead to bouts of data gridlock and possible outages. If an outage happens, Enterprises are handcuffed until services come back online.
To prevent the possibility of this happening, Enterprises use SLA’s or Service Level Agreements with their ISP’s to ensure consistent service and uptime. With fiber lines and multiple connections to businesses, the odds of all data lines being down simultaneously are virtually nil. Businesses and Enterprises should find a reputable ISP who can provide an SLA to keep them to a high standard of service.
