A Comprehensive Data Center Strategy Incorporates Four Key Areas
Modern Data Center Strategy Requires the Right Mix
Today, creating and planning a data center strategy is more complex than ever before. Now organizations have so many choices. Do you modernize an old facility? Build a new one? Lease? Colocate? Migrate to the cloud? Use some combination of these options?
Looking at the magic mix of infrastructure types is really about the “business of IT” more so than just a technical function. Any one or combination of on-premise, cloud or colocation could technically work, so it’s important that the business requirements take center stage and drive both strategy and implementation.
It’s also important to consider all the unique user requirements as part of your data center strategy, whether you are a small business, mid-sized firm or large enterprise, different users require different needs from IT. That’s why getting expert help can clarify your path so you can focus more time on moving business forward faster and less time on managing IT.
