Businesses move their operations to data centers to reduce the risk of downtime and data loss in the event of a disaster. In the wake of this past year’s storms, hurricanes and floods, it is no surprise that more and more businesses are realizing it makes sense to move their operations to a data center.
Aside from mitigating disaster-related risks, companies also move their essential IT operations to a data center to update an aging infrastructure. Smart businesses also understand they can save money by shifting the burden of power, security, cooling and space management to experts at data centers.
Moving to a data center is a project that should not be taken lightly. It requires careful planning and expert execution to ensure the chosen facility is best suited to meet your operations’ ongoing needs. A poorly-managed move to a poorly-located data center can disrupt business operations for days or weeks. Likewise, choosing a bad location with insufficient power, space or redundancy can force a company to make another move, which can be a costly mistake.
