3 Data Center Considerations When Moving to a New Office Space

Relocating any business is a big undertaking. Not only do you have to pack up the desks and move the file cabinets, but you also have to transfer all the technology that is critical to operations, from the photocopier and fax machine to the computer network. Establishing a new data center is likely to be the most expensive part of any move and the most critical to operations. That’s why you need to carefully review data center design and develop a strategy that is fast, cost-effective and extensible, because data demand is sure to increase.

How Modular Data Center Solutions Scale with Your Growing Business

When it comes to data centers, how much capacity is too much? That’s like asking, “how high is up?” Capacity requirements are going to differ for every organization, and even after adding more computing power, it may seem that you still don’t have enough. The challenge for data center architects is designing an infrastructure that has scalable capacity without overprovisioning or breaking the budget. That’s why more enterprise data center designers, especially within the colocation space, are turning to modular data centers to help them scale their operations.

Why Modular is the Future of Data Center Design

Every data center seems to suffer from the same problem: the need for more capacity. New technologies, such as big data, artificial intelligence, and the Internet of Things (IoT), are driving the demand for increased processing power, data storage, and physical space. Demand for additional capacity and faster data access is driving construction of new data centers, but they require land and take time to build. That’s why more organizations are looking to modular data centers as an optimal solution.
