Is your company ready to make the move from in-house servers to a shared datacenter environment such as colocation? What are the things you need to consider when analyzing an outsourced datacenter solution? Below are 5 reasons colocation is the right answer for your growing business.
Cost Savings – Building your own datacenter can translate to big CAPEX spending. Colocation provides an environment for fixed OPEX and cost structures that are planned and predictable. Colocation is less expensive for businesses because the infrastructure and staff is already in place.
Higher Reliability and Uptime – Redundant power supply and emergency backup generators keep datacenters up and running 100% of the time. A business interruption can cost a company $5,600 per minute. Your business can simply not afford to be offline. Colocation at a datacenter provide a 100% uptime benefit that also secures peace of mind.
Greater Flexibility and Scalability – Your business is going to grow, when and by how much is the unknown. With colocation, you can quickly scale up your infrastructure needs in-line with your growth. Adding to your infrastructure is cost efficient because a colocation facility is configured to provide additional capacity as their customers need it.
