Organizations of across all verticals are finding new ways where cloud and the modern data center impacts their business. They’re shifting workloads, optimizing experiences, and staying very competitive in today’s market.
But what if you’re a government entity? You’re also trying to be as efficient as possible – but you have barriers to achieving what other companies can do much more easily. Today, not only are government IT environments working hard to control costs and operate better; they’re also trying to overcome compliance and regulatory challenges.
Every day, government agencies struggle to meet critical cost controls with lower operational expenses while fulfilling the Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative’s (FDCCI) goal. All too often they are finding themselves constrained by their legacy in-house data centers and connectivity solutions that fail to deliver exceptional data center reliability and uptime. In this paper from CyrusOne, we learn how system integrators (SI) leverage data center providers to solve key issues for federal agencies.
The idea is work with a data center provider which can support and scale around critical IT infrastructure requirements. When it comes to federal agencies, this means being able to:
- Deliver uptime to access data and applications
- Meet government compliance mandates – FISMA, NIST
- Lower capital and operating expenses
- Support the growth explosion of sensitive, government data
Remember, government agencies come in all sizes and have a variety of requirements. A good colocation environment is capable of being flexible – while still helping to create very scalable solutions. These types of partners can help with thorough \assistance in scoping, engineering and implementation to ensure that your solutions are right-sized for your needs now and in the future. Furthermore, you can design your own level of power redundancy (2N, 1N, or both) while still delivering power densities up to 900 watts per square foot so you can scale your server environment vertically, with increased power to optimize your footprint.
Download this paper today to learn how colocation providers like CyrusOne are revolutionizing the data center experience for federal agencies. Most of all, you’ll learn how to create a secure, compliant and scalable solution which can meet the needs of every mission.
