Cloud data centers are typically located where the metrics of total cost of ownership, flexibility, performance, and ‘righteousness’ are optimized. This white paper provides an overview of the US markets with the lowest total cost of ownership by ranking them based on land, energy, network and labor costs.
To meet the needs of the rapidly expanding global colocation market, a significant amount of new infrastructure must be built quickly. Project buffering can eliminate many of the threats that inhibit data center speed-to-market, including market demand for OFCI equipment, supply chain issues, labor shortages, and conflicts around the just-in-time delivery of mission critical equipment.
As Gartner stated in its research, “Colocation is often used as a replacement for traditional data centers, because it offers higher availability, reliability, certified building tier levels, energy efficiency, dedicated facilities management and the ability to scale.” Get the new white paper from NTT and RagingWire Data Centers, which takes a look at some of the most common worries that come up when making the move to use a colocation partner.
Successful Cloud Service Providers and Managed Service Providers need to be out in front of everything in their managed data center spaces – ensuring uptime, bandwidth, and operational/cost efficiency today, with the flexibility and scalability to adapt and expand on the fly. Physical layer and infrastructure is the foundation on which those services are built. Get the new data center ebook from Siemon that explores pro tips and best practices for physical layer strategies for cloud and managed service providers, from zone cabling in the colocation data center to high speed interconnects in the data center.
Asking the right questions is a big part of the equation. Here are eight considerations in a new white paper from Iron Mountain with targeted questions to ask that will help you choose the right colocation partner for your business.
In an industry where 100% uptime is the expectation, what can owners do to proactively de-risk their data center operations and protect their company? Based on BCS’ decades of experience both operating data centers on behalf of enterprises and serving as data center operators ourselves, the company propose five questions data center owners should be asking operators to ensure that service provider goals are consistent with their own in this new report.
