Clearly Peter Curtis knows what he’s talking about when it comes to critical infrastructure. We discuss all kinds of requirements and considerations around these types of environments. Peter gives practical advice about the decision-making process, hiring the right consultant or installer to help implement technology, what kind of technology to implement, and the importance of training staff to keep the environment running. As Peter mentions, even an hour of down-time can lead to millions of dollars in lost revenue.
