Gartner anticipates that many leading enterprises will migrate entirely away from their on-premises data centers with the current trend of moving workloads to colocation, hosting and the cloud. With this evolution, I&O leaders must rely on outside partners.
The use of colocation services has continued to increase, rapidly becoming the solution of choice for organizations requiring an efficient, secure and cost-effective way to manage their IT infrastructure. Colocation providers deliver a stable foundation upon which you can support your core business and execute on your IT strategy – but not all data center service providers are created equal. Download the new white paper from Cyxtera that provides a data center checklist to ensure you cover all selection criteria as you tour various facilities.
