At the crossroads of high-tech fluid dynamics, real estate, and our energy grid sits the data center. An asset and industry that is misunderstood, mostly hidden, and at the core of the brave new digital world we live in today. They are the ever-evolving and growing metropolitan city designed to house the data and data processing that drives our economy forward.
There is no cloud, just someone else’s computer and the data center is the home of every “cloud” you use today… and will remain the home of every “cloud” your great-grandchildren will eventually use.
Here are a few questions to consider when looking at data centers for your company:
- What is your disaster recovery and business continuity plan – do they include co-located services that are physically hardened and secure? (DC in your basement is not a good plan)
- Does your business require high availability and resiliency? Are your current facilities too close for comfort? (50-100 miles – not across the campus or street)
- Have you outgrown your current environmental rack capacity with virtualization and higher demands on cooling and power? (higher density racks demand more cooling and more power per rack)
- Would highly competitive IT managed services help stretch your headcount budgets by realigning the day-to-day operations to a leveraged model ?
