If the digital economy wasn’t already prevalent, the consumer behaviors during the pandemic evolved quickly enough to push almost everyone into a more digital state of mind. Colocation providers, data centers, and hyperscale ecosystems are getting far more attention than ever. Is your organization positioned to make the change from traditional to hyperscale solutions?
Companies today are tasked with developing a balance between cloud and data center solutions, and many have yet to fully grasp the importance of this balance. But to ease the complexities and find balance, many have moved toward more efficient colocation data centers, often referred to as hyperscale data centers.
With the traditional data center approach – which includes enterprise data centers, but also smaller ones – there aren’t a lot of efficiencies. And worse yet is that the traditional data center is no stranger to outages, which equals downtime. The hyperscale data center, however, is more resilient, more efficient, and less likely to pose downtime risks. Gartner’s estimate of the cost of downtime is around $5,600 per minute, which is a convincing statistic.
Optimizing costs is important to every organization – big and small. If you have an on-site data center, you can speak to the ongoing costs related to maintenance and upgrades. These costs can be spent on strategic growth instead, and you can do this by outsourcing colocation data center services.
Optimizing costs in this way also optimizes other things, such as space and energy. Internal data centers can take up a hefty amount of room that could be better used and promote business growth. Leveraging a hyperscale data center will also optimize energy efficiency, as these centers are focused on more efficient means of powering servers and other colocation-related technologies.
