The insight provided by these systems has historically only been accessible to the data center operations team, not the colocated customer.

Where the traditional colocation model locks you into long-term contracts for power you may not use, the evolved pay- for-use model eliminates the need to forecast IT demand and provides control over capacity. As a result, you reduce waste and align your data center to the needs of your business.
