As businesses continue to drive for growth and manage costs, they are challenged to respond to an unpredictable economic climate, escalating levels of regulation, technological advances and ever greater volumes and complexity of data that businesses need to rely on.
In the face of change, companies look for flexible and scalable ways to manage ICT infrastructures, without compromising on security and reliability.
For many, outsourcing their need for data centre capacity to colocation partners is the best solution. Companies retain control of their ICT infrastructure while taking advantage of the state-of-the-art technology, scalability, security and availability that third party data centres provide. In turn, this gives businesses the scope to focus on their core business operations.
In an environment where economic, technical and regulatory pressures are all impacting business ICT infrastructure, enterprises can find they are either rapidly exceeding, or under-utilising, the capacity of their in-house data centres. Often it’s a challenge to provide the space, power and cooling that advanced infrastructure requires.
By colocating your ICT infrastructures in a third party data centre, you can quickly achieve the flexibility, scalability and cost-effectiveness to effectively support your business plans.
To maintain competitiveness and achieve greater profitability companies need to drive innovation and improve efficiency.
Colocating your equipment in a third party data centre means you can focus on core business activities without losing control of your data, systems, processes or skills.
Increasing levels of regulation are making significant demands on how companies store and manage their growing volumes of data. Taking advantage of colocation facilities in an advanced data centre provides high levels of security, helping you meet changing requirements for compliance and data protection.
Professional data centres can also help you address new corporate responsibility requirements around sustainability by delivering efficient power and cooling with minimum environmental impact.
Enterprises are challenged to reduce capital and operating costs.
Growing enterprises must either build new data centre space in-house to accommodate greater demands, or support redundant space that allows for growth. Power and cooling demands, as well as connectivity requirements, all contribute to rising operational costs.
Third party data centres allow you to pay for the space you need and scale only as required. The costs of security and data centre technology are shared with your colocation partner, while costs are further reduced by innovations in efficiency, such as advanced power management.
