For businesses in this technology-driven economy, one of two things is true: you need to expand your data center now, or you need to plan for the time when you do. You may already be looking at the advantages of colocation solutions, or even considering building your own data center. But a third option — one that might not occur to you — could be the best of both worlds. Build-to-suit data centers can be more cost-effective and future-proof than other expansion solutions.
The growing demands of big data and complex systems increase the need for secure, scalable data center expansion. Thinking through options brings up concerns of privacy, capacity, control, reliability and more. Colocation may be an attractive option on the surface, but will sharing a facility allow you to expand when you need to? What will protect your data from colocating companies? How can you maintain control when other companies need control, too? These questions and more can be difficult to answer alone.
