Looking to relocate your Data Centre? Does your Data Protection and Disaster Recovery strategy need improving?
At the beginning of 2012, Gartner polled over 2000 CIO’s to answer the question “What are companies focusing on this year when it comes to technology”. Data Centre Transitioning, Data Protection, and Disaster Recovery Services were at the top of list when it came to most CIO’s key IT priorities for 2012.
Data Centre Transitioning
Existing concerns with current Data Centre facilities such as ageing infrastructure, inflexible access conditions, space limitations, and power and cooling capacity constraints have been driving many companies to look for better alternatives for housing their production IT environments. Additionally the process of relocating a fully operational production environment is a complex undertaking that demands meticulous planning and implementation to assure a successful transition.
Companies are looking towards Data Centre solution providers who can provide reliable and unconstrained facilities that also meet the Customers flexible usage requirements and conditions. Ideally this partner should have proven experience in helping organizations achieve a successful transition or Data Centre relocation, by demonstrating a clear understanding of the methodology and planning required to avoid the most common pitfalls and dangers inherent in a transition.
