Fast-changing business needs—such as mergers and acquisitions, regulatory changes, the need to remotely access data, and security changes—can necessitate a data center migration. But with a data center migration come numerous challenges, such as application or other dependencies, poorly defined data requirements, distributed data and applications, lack of expertise or management support, and others. In this week’s Voices of the Industry, David Mettler, IO Data Centers vice president of sales and market director for the United States, discusses how best to overcome data center migration challenges with a planned approach.
Why look for a provider with an “enterprise hybrid solution”? What is it about the IO data center solution that delivers truly scalable capacity where the status quo cannot? The IO data center solution delivers vertical and horizontal scalability – it is a data center solution that flexes with your business. So you can scale up and down by increasing density (vertical scale), by expanding your footprint (horizontal scale), and by bursting or migrating workloads into an on-premises private cloud. To be clear: IO allows customers to dial up and dial down as demand changes. It’s an elastic colocation model.
