State-of-the-Art Software Solution Automates Method of Procedure Creation and Execution to Increase Availability and Uptime
DataBank has partnered with MOPstar, a state-of-the-art software solution that will standardize method of procedure (MOP) and daily maintenance across its data centers. The goal is to reduce operational errors, increasing productivity and providing better control mechanisms to improve availability and uptime.
DataBank selected MOPstar because of the way its solution set eliminates the manual and paper-based management of MOP that are typical in most data centers and replaces it with a centralized system that simplifies data center operations and conformance of procedures through automation. MOPstar provides ready access to more data, with increased accuracy and consistency, thereby reducing errors and saving time.
“As DataBank continues to build the premier edge and colocation data center platform in the United States, it’s essential that we automate and standardize operations even as we scale to ensure maximum uptime, optimal efficiency, and compliance,” states Raul K. Martynek, CEO of DataBank. “By deploying MOPstar first in select facilities and ultimately across our entire data center portfolio, we are elevating the level of precision, quality control and visibility of our mission-critical infrastructure, a distinct advantage to every DataBank customer whose operations demand real-time system monitoring, availability, and security.”
DataBank will roll out MOPstar starting in Indianapolis, Kansas City, and Salt Lake City. That is to be followed by 20 more data centers in nine U.S. markets by Q2 2020. The partnership with MOPstar comes as DataBank experiences a period of spectacular growth, including its recent acquisition of Lightbound, a colocation, Internet, voice, network and cloud services provider that expanded DataBank’s portfolio of edge data centers with two new enterprise-class facilities in the Indianapolis metro area.
In addition to Indianapolis, Kansas City, and Salt Lake City, DataBank operates data centers in Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Dallas, Minneapolis, and Pittsburgh. For more information, please visit www.databank.com.
