When it comes to moving your servers off-site, the only real question is “if not here, then why there?” The IT field experiences rapid advancements that give data centres an edge over what other businesses can provide for themselves, from a high level of physical security to network speeds.
Do you remember being admonished as a child for holding the refrigerator door open? Or what about air conditioning – we often hear that raising our thermostats slightly in the summer can result in significant savings.
The data centre is no different in terms of energy conservation strategies; we just do things on a much larger scale.
In my previous post, we explored the difference between Volt-Amps and Watts, and came to the conclusion that, with today’s power-factor-corrected equipment, these two measurements are usually nearly identical.
When searching for a provider to outsource your infrastructure to, the cloud is an attractive option for most businesses, but not every organization is ready to make that leap. A data centre exists to protect equipment and data while offering cost-efficient solutions with higher reliability, increased connectivity and improved physical security.
If you’re seriously considering moving from an in-house server room to a colocation facility, you'll likely have some questions about power. What is a Volt-Ampere, you may be asking, and how is a VA rating different from a power rating in Watts?
When you take advantage of colocation you’re renting space in a data centre for your servers, storage hardware and network devices, leveraging the facility’s resiliency and physical security to provide you the ideal environment for your infrastructure. However, with the rise of cloud services, you may be wondering how colocation is still relevant?
