Taiwanese cloud provider Acer eDC is ready for all earthquakes, or not?Acer eDC has their Datacentre in Taiwan and claim to be earthquake resistant. IISRI® takes the challenge and investigates. Taiwan has an aggressive environment with earthquakes, floods and typhoons. The data centre has been built to resist earthquakes of up to 7 Richter magnitude according to Acer eDC. There have been 19 earthquakes in Taiwan with a magnitude of 7 or higher since 1900. The likelihood of a next earthquake in the next ten years to be higher than 7 is as such 37% and thus the likelihood of damage to the Acer eDC data centre is substantial.
