Vital professional back-up for owners, occupiers and investors can for sure act to good effect when you invest in data centre disaster recovery solutions. Third-party data centres have and will continue to experience fast growth due to the ways they are so effective to the end user. Outsourcing to a flexible data centre therefore helps to de-risk investment in IT and can help to ensure money is spent in all the correct areas when it comes to your tech IT infrastructure. |
Data centres are one of IT's longer-term investments. Medium and large organisations will increase their expenditure on data centres, mainly in the healthcare and finance industries in the coming years. This specialist sector and how it relates to your business or investment strategy is now a lot clearer for sure. The datacentre remains a top investment priority for the enterprise, with 87% of North American and European operators setting out plans to invest in such a facility for a business.
Most data centres consume energy from the national grid – that is, the national, high-voltage electric power transmission network. However, buying energy 'off-grid' (directly from an alternative power source) allows data centres to negotiate lower energy tariffs and reduce their total energy costs. This approach is common practice among energy-intensive industries (such as chemical plants), in which businesses locate their premises close to power generation facilities and install direct power feeds to benefit from lower off-grid energy costs. This is for sure the case for a lot of businesses based out of London and a lot of the other major built up cities across the UK at present.
Enterprise and consumer cloud services have been among the main drivers of demand for data centre capacity in the past few years, and it is expected that such services will continue to fuel this growth. Another key term in this area and data centres as a whole as a process to take note of is colocation. Colocation is the sharing of the data and a means from which the data is distributed from and across from there the data centre may run from. Overall, a business investing in a data centre infrastructure is a business up and running with the times and a business serious about the manner to which they manage and run their key data, crucial to the processes of their business. In 2015, there has never been a better time than now to make this investment.
