Cloud and Carrier Neutrality in a colocation data centre
IT consumerisation, mobility, social media, big data, virtualisation, cloud computing – every one of these key developments moves the data centre closer to the heart of the digital economy.
The resulting need for increased performance, scalability, connectivity, and high-density computing – coupled with concerns about security, sustainability and cost control – is driving enterprises of all sizes to consider third-party data centre space to house their ICT infrastructure.
In this paper we explore the concept of the cloud and carrier-neutral data centre and consider the benefits it can offer to organisations in different sectors and how it allows enterprises to future proof their IT infrastructure. We also look at what data centre neutrality could mean for the future.
The issues covered include:
- Cloud-neutral, carrier- neutral - or both?
- The data centre as a great place to do business
- What does the future hold?
