This white paper explores technologies and trends that are changing the colocation landscape and providing valuable benefits to businesses. As companies continue migrating to the cloud, they often run into unexpected management issues regarding the integration of cloud services with in-house IT systems.
Organizations are challenged to bridge the gap that exists between internal technologies, traditional hosting solutions and the cloud. Next-generation colocation solutions support high-density computing, unified management portals and hybridization of IT infrastructure. These capabilities enable organizations to integrate technology systems, data and applications to provide an optimal end-user experience and are often the first step towards transitioning away from on-premise infrastructure.
Colocation has traditionally been viewed as a commoditized and standardized service, but these new developments (high-density power, remote management and hybridized infrastructure) have created significant differentiation in the market. These advancements allow increased agility, visibility and control of one’s infrastructure. Understanding these technologies and how they can help you better serve your end users and drive operational efficiencies is an essential step in identifying the right colocation provider.
