CSX Technology and TNT Logistics North America have announced a cohosting data security agreement that will supplement TNT Logistics' information technology infrastructure. CSX's Advanced Information Technology Center (AITC) will provide physical security and high-speed network connectivity to TNT Logistics from its facility in Jacksonville, Florida.
The agreement enables TNT Logistics to provide a mirrored "failover" architecture to its customers. In the event of a computer system outage, operations would automatically switch over to servers housed at the AITC. This secure, hardened facility will ensure that TNT Logistics' systems are running and available 24/7.
With triple power redundancy, advanced telecommunications and its physical security system, AITC can ride out major storms and other catastrophes, and keep running for up to 30 consecutive days.
