How to Choose the Perfect Data Center Partner
Data centers power our future, connecting people and ideas across the globe. As the speed of our world rapidly increases, the demands on data facilities are increasing at a near-exponential rate. Perhaps the biggest example is the streaming wars that started really heating up in 2019. Every content producer in the business is looking to host and delivery their own video material directly to consumers, rather than through third-party distribution providers. The data centers that host the huge amount of data associated with video content - much less associated with live streaming content some platforms deliver - need not only be bigger, cleaner, and able to scale up quickly. They must also be distributed across the geographic landscape of the content consumers, who expect this huge amount of data to process quickly and be accessible everywhere instantly.
Whether you are in the content streaming business or not, it doesn't matter. Increased demand and the necessity of pushing more and more data directly to consumers wherever they are almost instantly means one of the most important decisions you can make when designing, upgrading, or maintaining your company’s data center is choosing the ideal hardware partner.
Where to Find Expert Advice and Battle-Tested Hardware
With so many options available, how do you find the right partner for the job? A good place to start is to take a look at your current requirements. Run some projections for the growth of your company, incorporating its data processing and storage needs. You will then have a rough sketch of the hardware your company will need now and in the future.
The ideal partner can take over from there, recommending cabinets and containments engineered to take full advantage of space, cabling, power, and cooling systems.
Not only do the products need to work: your partner should have the right expertise to speak your language, proactively recommending tools before you even need them. After all, you are looking for an ally to champion your cause for years to come.
