Are You Ready for the Data Center Facility of the Future?
This is an excerpt from the new The Essential Guide to the Data Center Facility of the Future.
The data center is the backbone of today’s business.
An efficient, well-designed data center allows you to scale and better support customers. However, if something goes wrong in the data center, your company could grind to a standstill.
Are you trying to run a 21st-century business on 20th-century infrastructure?
It’s Time to Start Preparing for the Data Center Facility of the Future, Today
With the average age of a data center facility at 18 years old, companies run the risk of more failures and downtime.
When many data center managers design their data centers, they base their decisions on what someone else is doing. However, what works for your competitor or your neighbor may not work for you. With the ever-changing technology landscape and a long list of infrastructure options to choose from, discovering the right data center design for your organization can be daunting.
To be ready for the data center of the future, here are some things you should consider:
Why you should think differently about the data center
How to avoid the biggest data center design mistakes
Why you should know the data center from the floor to the ceiling
How to optimize your costs and maximize your budget
Designing the data center facility of the future is a long-term decision.
Take the time to do your homework. Assess your unique and specific needs. Find the right provider. Waiting until you have an emergency to move into a new data center facility will increase your costs and risks.
To help you prepare for this important decision, get your copy of The Essential Guide to the Data Center Facility of the Future.
