Why businesses opt for Colocation data center?

Around the world, businesses are adopting digital transformation strategy to create a better customer experience and improved efficiency. In order to cope with the resulting rapid increase of data and bandwidth requirements from various digital technologies, more and more businesses- across all industries- are shifting data centers outside their organization, unlocking benefits such as infrastructure flexibility, better disaster recovery, improved security, ease of access to public cloud operators and an overall total lower cost.

Which Colocation partner should I choose?

With the ever-increasing complexity and capacity challenges more and more organizations are moving towards colocation solutions rather than investing in an in-house data center- although the biggest challenge for many organizations has become “Which partner do I choose?” and most importantly “Where are their data center located?”

Location should be the primary factor

When choosing a colocation partner, the location of their data centers is usually the primary factor that will influence your decision. A good choice of location means optimized infrastructure, better connectivity and improved business continuity. On the flip side, a poor location can result in unstable connections and efficiency problems.

A colocation data center should be in an area which is seismically rated for protection against earthquakes and should be as safe as possible from any man-made disasters. So even if an incident occurs in your organization’s offices your critical infrastructure remains unaffected and operational

Customers can add additional storage, compute and networking resources with just a click of a button, and it will be up and running in 15 mins rather than the months typically required for traditional infrastructure design, procurement, installation and turn-up.

Is location should be the only factor while selecting a colocation partner?

In short-no, when choosing a colocation data center provider, organizations should consider many other factors, including connectivity, reputation, support, services and cost. But it is certainly, true that location is one of the most important factors among all others, it is because the location has an impact on many of the other factors which are crucial to data center success.

Organizations with colocation or in-house data centers always face the challenge of infrastructure scalability to meet the increased demand. Unlike cloud computing where you can increase or decrease your infrastructure resources to match the business demand with a pay-as-you-go model, in colocation or on-prem environment you are looking at huge capital investment in the form of hardware and additional real estate to expand your existing facility’s footprint.

Also, you must wait for months for the additional capacity to be up & running. This will offset new revenue and your businesses ability to react quickly to the ever-changing market dynamics.
