  • Risk & Resilience

    Through ongoing risk assessments, Flexential is able to identify threats and vulnerabilities to the operations of the organization. Risk assessments are used to identify risks and focus efforts of mitigation plans and continuous operational improvement.

    Preparing for adverse conditions is critical to safely and effectively managing a data center environment. Whether a disaster is manmade or natural, Flexential customers rely on Flexential data centers and services to maintain critical operations. At Flexential, we take this preparedness seriously and plan upfront to mitigate (prevent or minimize) the impact a disaster can cause, not only on our own data center and network, but our customers’ business continuity as well.

    This level of preparedness involves significant upfront planning and on-going maintenance and assessment. We start with where and how we construct our data centers and follow through with how we train our team and the ongoing preventative measures and plans we put in place.
