Advantages of Outsourcing Data Center Functions

If you've struggled with the concept of outsourcing data center functions, you may be missing out on some huge advantages.  Outsourcing allows you to focus on your critical business applications while we ensure that you are up and running.  In fact, because we do such a great job with such important functions as network security, server security, facility security, power redundancy, cooling redundancy, bandwidth redundancy, 24/7 monitoring, and support, you'll save a great deal of money while maintaining more control over outcomes than ever before.
Whether you choose a collocation model, or opt for managed services, take a fresh look at these benefits of data center outsourcing:
Scalability Lets You Take Advantage of Opportunities

  • Flexible Capacity.  You don't ever have to worry about capacity.  Because secure, virtual servers can be activated on-the-fly, you simply let us know what you need in terms of hard drive space, RAM, processors and bandwidth, and we'll provision your increased capacity as you need it.
  • Lower Costs.  Your computing needs aren't at full capacity all the time.  Why be forced into server and networking configurations that assume peak capacity?  If you've got a project that will be phased in over time, there's no need to invest in a full configuration on day one.  Use what you need with the assurance that it only takes a simple request to ramp up computing resources. 

Data Center Redundancy, Reliability and Security Ensure Maximum Uptime

  • State-of-the-Art Data Center.  Unless you've already invested in a SAS-70 and HIPAA-compliant data center of your own, it makes sense to use ours.  Our 18-inch raised floors are static free and allow for optimal air-flow while providing easy access to critical data and cabling infrastructure functions.  24/7/365 on-site support means real peace of mind. 
  • Eliminating Single Points of Failure.  With redundant Internet connectivity in the form of dual 1,000 Mbps ports coming into our facility, your connections are assured.  In the event of a failure on one of the redundantly provisioned ports, your servers would be routed through the other port to the Internet automatically.  Uninterrupted power is assured by a 700-gallon Cummins generator that is tested weekly, and a UPS system utilizing dual A & B feeds to keep the center running until generator power is available.  Multiple, redundant 20-ton Liebert HVAC units provide cooling, and the data center design uses a cleverly engineered system of hot and cool rows to keep optimal temperatures in the server farms.    
  • Security is Job One.  Physical security is provided by monitored 24/7/365 video surveillance and card-key access at every entrance.  In addition, Denver network security, secure server builds, and best security practices ensure a secure environment at all computing levels.     

Outsourcing data center functions can set you free to concentrate on the things that are core to your enterprise, so unless you are actually in the data center business, consider outsourcing as a vital element of your success.
