Your ideal Data Center Colocation partner

Organizations are on a perennial quest to reduce cost and increase their business focus with the power of data. Data is the new oil and there is an increased emphasis on unleashing the full potential of technology with the Data Center (DC) and the corroborating IT infrastructure. Organizations are increasingly looking forward to unlocking data-driven transformation by partnering with the right Data Center service providers for organizational resilience, business continuity, and cost savings.

The pandemic has further pushed for the growth in digital adoption and IT-infra trends where enterprises are largely gravitating towards colocation and cloud rather than in-house DC. With flexibility, scalability, and state-of-the-art security being guaranteed, they need a reliable and trustworthy partner who has the capacity to go beyond their basic Data Center requirements.

Choosing Your Ideal Data Center Service Partner

  • Dedicated Subject Matter Experts across all functions in each Data Center including Electrical, Mechanical, Building Management System, Health & Safety, Security and Network.
  • Cross-industry experience of hosting diverse workloads on carrier-neutral Data Centers.
  • Data Center presence across all regions to serve customers effectively.
  • Stringent physical infrastructure security.
  • Green Data Centers with energy-efficient devices and processes to reduce energy consumption.
  • Sourcing and deploying renewable energy.
  • Strong Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) policies.
  • Redundant architecture for high resiliency.
  • Backup and Disaster Recovery capabilities.
  • Operational Excellence to ensure uptime of 99.999%.
  • Partnership with leading Hyperscale Cloud Providers.
  • Fast Network connectivity to multiple public clouds.
  • Experience in optimizing hybrid cloud.

An ideal provider should have a partnership with leading Hyperscalers, connectivity to respective public clouds, and the experience of optimizing the hybrid cloud. With increasing emphasis on environmental safety and sustainability, it is best if your provider uses green data centers which use renewable energy for reducing water usage, electricity consumption, and harmful emissions. A quick way of judging a provider is to look at the overall customer feedback for its services.
