Whether sales are being missed or vital communications are not going through, every moment a company’s RightFax server is down is costly. What makes the matter worse is the potential for compliance issues and data loss. For companies that handle sensitive or private data, breaks in compliance can result in lawsuits and hefty fines.
If your fax server is critical to your business, there is no better way to protect it than with redundancy. Redundant fax servers allow you to avoid the expensive and time-consuming consequences that come with unexpected downtime.
How Redundant Fax Servers Work
RightFax operates in a standalone single server. Although the server is often reliable, it is not immune to downtime, which is why we recommend the RightFax Shared Services Module. This module allows you to connect multiple standalone RightFax servers that operate as a single system. If one server goes down, the others will continue operating as if nothing is wrong. You won’t lose any data or any critical system functions because the servers all share a single database.
Protect Your Data and Your Business
Whether you are afraid of losing productivity, sales, data or all of the above, you can protect the integrity of your fax server with a Shared Services Environment. Having multiple fax servers operating as one increases:
- Redundancy: multiple servers share all data in a RightFax database. The data is accessible to all administrators and clients.
- Scalability: there is no limit to the number of fax servers that can share a database.
- Availability: throughput for sending faxes increases as internal loads are shared.
- Disaster Recovery: no data is lost when single servers fail.
They Also Increase Performance
There are other benefits to operating within a Shared Services Environment. Because the servers all act in unison, the capacity and workload of your fax environment is shared across all servers. It’s like operating a vehicle with multiple engines. Not only will the car continue to operate should one engine fail, but you can double, triple and quadruple your performance by adding new engines to the system.
