The Importance of Redundancy in Web Hosting
Redundancy is generally viewed as superfluous repetition or overlapping, excessive, and unnecessary. It has a totally different meaning in web hosting where it means backup in layman’s terms.
When it comes to databases, networking, website maintenance, and other technical endeavors, however, redundancy is not only necessary — it is essential.
All organizations, sooner or later, will face minor disasters, for example, hardware failure, power outage, Internet disruptions, and so on. Shockingly, many will likewise experience genuine disasters, for example, flooding, fire, earthquake, terrorist attack, and so forth. What distinguishes the organizations that bounce back from such calamities without a scratch from those that can’t deal with the outage and go out of business? Redundancy.
