Information Technology is complex. And though solutions like virtualization, storage and networking technologies give businesses a strategic advantage, IT is still difficult and labor intensive to run in-house.
But it's not the case with wholesale colocation. Colocation providers (in English: high tech landlords) deliver hardened data centers, redundant power, cooling, fire suppression, security, and access to telecom. All the complexities of 99.995% uptime are handled by experts.
You can always build your own data center. If you have mission critical facilities experts on staff, you can probably build a nice one. But can you spend the capital costs on two of everything? How does the cost compare to wholesale data center space?
Getting out of the data center facilities business can simplify your IT.
