Business Challenge

The data center is the hub of your business operations — and you clearly recognize its critical importance. Even so, it’s tough to accurately forecast growth and budgets due to rapidly increasing data and compute requirements — and the accompanying demand for additional power and cooling. And when you add new technologies and an ever-changing regulatory landscape into the mix, it’s that much harder to keep your data center aligned with current and future business needs. Given these challenges, it’s likely that you’re considering a move to a new location.

However, relocating a data center is no simple task. Even if you’re able to build a new facility or find a third-party location, you may still worry about meeting your regulatory, business continuity and growth demands. And if you aren’t confident in your data center’s ability to support these requirements over time, you could be putting the very viability of your organization in jeopardy.

What If You Could...

  • Find a vendor that understands your business — and is not just a real estate company?
  • Work with an operationally sound provider that can help you deploy a flexible data center environment — and won’t require you to pay for capacity you don’t need?
  • Ensure your infrastructure aligns with your business continuity requirements?Operate a data center that complies with the specific regulations governing your industry?
  • Rely on the same partner you trust to protect your information to deliver the security, compliance and services your data center operations require?
