Shopping Season is Upon Us. Can You Trust Your Data Center Provider?

With millions of people taking to the internet — either playing Santa, playing their road trip soundtrack, or playing games — that data all funnels through a data center. Is your data center prepared for the influx?

It’s that time of the year again. The U.S. consumer holiday get-together and annual shopping event! And while things are a bit more economically uncertain this year and will most likely get tougher to convince the consumer to spend in 2022, there are still opportunities to set your company up for success this holiday season.

2022 is more critical than most years in recent history. With ongoing supply chain obstacles, complex socio-economic issues, and overall looming consumer uncertainty, retailers are even more hard-pressed to compete for every hard-earned consumer dollar. Retailers have resorted to extending the 2022 holiday season into October as stores like Costco, Michael’s, and Target already display Christmas offerings to get a jump on the closing annual fiscal quarter. Amazon offered not one, but two Amazon Prime Days Shopping events in 2022. The most recent one occurring in mid-October.

According to Business Wire, consumer spending could see as much as a $30 billion dollar decline in the 2022 holiday shopping season — a 14% spending decrease from last year. Despite the sharp decline in predicted total revenue being spent, online shopping could see a record spending percentage increase over 2021. But the consumer story doesn’t end there. With big blockbuster movies planned for the holiday season, rendering farms, streaming services, and online gaming will still be in full force!

Is Your Data Center Up to the Task

With millions of people taking to the internet — either playing Santa, playing their road trip soundtrack, or playing games — that data all funnels through a data center.

Is your data center prepared for the influx? Do you have a reliable tech team or a dedicated remote hands team that’s up to the task of ensuring every byte, bank transfer, and bike gets delivered? Is your corporate plan prepared for inclement weather and other seasonal contingencies that occur as the leaves change colors and the first snowflakes appear? What plans does your data center have for sudden loss of power? Are there sufficient backups and protocols in place to ensure you are either uninterrupted or back online with minimal disruption?
