Outsource data center costs can be significantly lower than building your own

Studies show that over 50% of commercial enterprises will be faced with a change in their enterprise data center in the next five years.  You may be faced with a shortage of space, power or cooling.  You may be faced with moving a data center.  You may be considering outsource computer room facilities rather than building your own.  Is there value in outsource data center facilities?

The answer is almost always yes.  Unless your company has in-house expertise on building mission critical facilities like data centers, there may be great value in considering outsource data centers.  Data center capital costs can be outlandish, even for a small facility.

Ask yourself these questions:

What level of data center uptime does my company require?  If the company needs 99.995% uptime or better, you should consider outsource data center.

What level of mission critical facilities expertise does my company have on staff?  Is the company prepared to build and maintain facilities in-house?

Does it make more sense to trade data center capital costs for operating expenses?  Is the cost of capital too high?

Does data center compliance play a role in my company’s decision?  Outsource data centers with a focus on compliance can solve problems that cost a company tens of thousands of dollars to handle on their own.
