How much downtime can your company afford to lose?
As IT demands increase, it becomes challenging and expensive for companies to manage the expertise and resources required to support their server infrastructure. Co-location in a data center offers a way to guarantee higher levels of availability of critical data while keeping the critical knowledge of their business applications inside the company.

Rather than investing in network, UPS and HVAC units and back-up generators, co-locating servers in a data center allows companies to reduce those expenditures while keeping business essential and critical data available at all times

Co-Location Data Centers

In addition, companies can leverage the expertise of staff allowing companies to reduce costsfor IT staff. Outsourcing the management of your data relieves pressure allowing companies to focus on their core business versus running their IT infrastructure. Co-location in a data center provides redundancy of servers so that when one server fails the other takes over, providing a seamless flow without interruption.

Scalability of data accommodates changes as a business grows. Choosing the best data center will be based on the number of servers you have, whether your data is mission critical or simply business essential, how much downtime your company can afford and many other factors.

A data center is generally for companies that need high security and protection of their data with minimal downtime. Companies that run several different types of applications or complex workloads are more suited to co-locate in a data center. Once in a data center, however, one must purchase and install more hardware and storage as they grow.

On the other hand, a cloud system is scalable to your business need that is an off premise computing storing data over the internet. Cloud computing services are generally divided into three categories:

  • Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS)
  • Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)
  • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)

All commercial cloud services are sold on demand to users with a user having as little or much as he needs of the services and are fully managed by the cloud provider.

With the help of cloud computing and green technologies, companies will be able to:

  • Cut monthly recurring costs of IT management
  • Eliminate the worry of safeguarding important files and data
  • Save both time and money
  • Allow employees to work together from different places
  • Reduce costs by only paying for what is used
