For the second year, the Uptime Institute has come out with some interesting stats in its annual survey of 1,100 data centers around the world. The key finding – and one this colocation services provider can attest to – is that data center budgets and capacity are growing even in these tough economic times. Businesses are continuing to invest in data centers because it’s the smart – and cost effective – thing to do. At ColoGuard, we take it a step further: Companies colocate with us to gain even better efficiencies. Rather than spend heavily reinventing the wheel, they turn to us for space, connectivity, power and security. And, with our managed services, an IT staff that can’t be beat.
Another interesting factoid: More than half the respondents said finding ways to reduce energy consumption was a top priority. ColoGuard understands this is important to our customers – and is a smart business decision.
