Data Centers and Information Companies


Our emergency fuel program is essential to any company that needs 100% uptime. By supplying the emergency generator for your business with fuel, our fuel delivery supports your service to customers and constituents. We are also equipped to service your fuel before an incident, thus lowering your risk of costly downtime. Let us partner with you in emergency fuel service to prepare for any mission critical incident


In key data centers that store, process, and distribute large amounts of essential data, it’s possible for computers to lose all the information they were storing if they get shut down. This would undermine the company’s entire operation.

We understand that continuity is vitally important at your data center, because downtime puts you and your customers at risk. During a mission critical event, you need a responsive partner with excellent customer service. Foster Fuels Mission Critical will help sustain your safety and security through our emergency fuel services. With our complete portfolio of fuel services, we will manage your fuel throughout the year. This means you will be prepared to transition between power sources faster and with less risk in case of a mission critical event.

No situation exemplifies the phrase “time is money” better than a data center experiencing downtime. A data center outage lasting even one minute can quickly become an overwhelming expense for the company. A recent report by Verizon found that “small” instances of data loss (around 100 lost or compromised records) cost businesses an average of $18,120 to $35,730. Once you consider lost revenue and productivity, cost to recover, and the cost of intangibles, this total overall estimation makes sense and means that downtime for any length of time is an unacceptable situation.
