Abstract:

This informative webinar highlights key trends driving businesses to colocation. Participants will learn how colocation can help them scale their data infrastructure without significant capital investment.

As data stockpiles expand and more infrastructure becomes necessary, enterprises and small-to-medium enterprises (SMEs) are wary of taking on capital investment expenditures. A 3 to 5 year colocation contract is a better practical expenditure than a 15 to 20 year investment in Greenfield or Brownfield development. 

Aside from monetary considerations, colocation providers deliver a number of quantifiable benefits to SMEs and Tier 1 customers. After this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Comprehend scalability as it relates to space, power, bandwidth and staff and learn how to leverage the colocation environment in order to successfully add capacity and bandwidth without significant additional costs.
  • Evaluate options for multi-factor physical security and IT security and discover how moving data and mission-critical equipment offsite creates redundancies to mitigate operational downtime and ensure operations remain unaffected.
  • Identify opportunities for energy efficiency at both the hyperscale and colocation level after hearing strategies for compliance with ASHRAE standards to maximize energy efficiency and create a greener data infrastructure.
  • Determine the importance of connectivity to large data pipelines to optimize latency and ensure optimal bandwidth efficiencies in the colocation environment, with an emphasis on the monitoring of network speed and traffic.
