According to Gartner analyst Rakesh Kumar, “Current data centers will be unable to host the next generation of high-density equipment, so CIOs will have to refurbish established sites, build new ones or look for alternatives, such as using a hosting provider.” What to do when you’re running out of data center space. As the battle for data center space intensifies, resources shrink and competition becomes fiercer. How to resolve the dilemma? Focus on increasing capacity within existing parameters. Find innovative ways to leverage technology and maximize availability through infrastructure planning, including virtualization and cloud/on demand service delivery. Approaches to Consider Stay where you are. Put infrastructure projects on hold and work with what you have. Upgrade your physical space or technology. This is a short term solution to a long term problem, but could allow IT managers to buy some time. Go somewhere else: Move selected storage needs and/or applications to a cloud or SaaS model. For example, a large in-house sales force automation system can be outsourced to make room for other mission critical applications, such as larger accounting systems. Some companies are willing to share extra data center space with others. However, ‘renting’ space from a company data center that has room to spare carries the risk that the facility is not up to the highest standards. Do something different: The most effective way to meet the data center crunch is strategic virtualization. Server requirements can be shrunk United States Head Office 28 Mansfield Street, Rochester, New York USA 14606 T: 1.585.277.1300 Canadian Head Office 2 Robert Speck Parkway, Suite 500, Mississauga, ON Canada L4Z 1H8 T: 1.905.686.9682 to one-tenth of their size, and capacity maximized by 60% or more (traditional servers often run at a mere 20% capacity). But keep in mind the specific power and network management functions required to maintain maximum performance and functionality. Benefits of Outsourced Data Center and Hosting Solutions According to Gartner analyst Rakesh Kumar, “The perceived issues of lack of control and weaker security with hosting players generally haven’t manifested themselves. The net result is that leasing space from a well-designed, modern data center hosting provider can yield financial and operational benefits. “Currently, the market is supply constrained, resulting in a rapid increase in costs. We expect this hosting market to become very attractive during the next few years, so users should move quickly to secure good prices.” Get these free downloads from our online Resource Center: Overview of CentriLogic Solution This datasheet outlines our philosophy, approach, and solution offerings for: • Hosting Services • Network Services • Data Management • Security Services • Professional Services Overview of Centrilogic Facilities If your IT requirements call for world-class facilities in the U.S. or Canada, you will want to learn more about CentriLogic standards for security, fire detection and much more.
