The Role of Colocation in Hybrid IT Infrastructure Solutions
If Hybrid IT is Your Goal, Colocation is a Part of the Equation
In the best of both worlds one should see why colocation is an essential first step in moving core infrastructure toward a hybrid model – which combines a mix of on premise infrastructure, colocation, dedicated & managed hosting, and cloud services. The security and isolation of colocation, combined with the flexibility and on-demand nature of the cloud, allows you to be more responsive to changing business needs and ultimately help drive business performance further, faster.
As CIOs know all too well, the continuously accelerating pace of business change is driving extreme demand for IT infrastructure agility. New competitors continually emerge as the Internet dissolves market barriers, M&A activity reshapes industries, and globalization drives rapid expansion into new territories. Rising customer expectations add pressure to continually enhance the customer experience. And now that IT systems underpin virtually all customers and supply chain interactions, IT solutions must be 100 percent available – always on – even as they meet that demand for extreme agility.
All of this means that IT organizations must deliver new business capabilities faster, even as their budgets are being squeezed. The drive to maximize IT agility in support of new business needs while holding down costs leads many CIOs to re-imagining their core IT infrastructure. They are outsourcing a growing proportion, utilizing an array of different ‘hybrid’ approaches.
Choosing colocation of mission-critical hardware and applications mitigates risk by enabling your enterprise to minimize disruption and maximize control over apps. You can rest assured of your colocation environment uptime when the existing application and its servers are co-located in an enterprise-grade, highly compliant and certified data center with highly reliable infrastructure and uptime commitments backed up by a strong SLA.
