Server co-location: outsourced or in-house?

As businesses continue to look to improve IT productivity and control spending, outsourcing or co-sourcing their mission-critical servers in a secure and reliable data centre can offer operational and cost cutting efficiencies. Additionally, businesses can then focus resources on running their core business rather than dealing with the day to day of server management.

In an online survey 35% of respondents said they are currently utilizing some data centre outsourcing and 28% of those organizations are planning to expand what they outsource to data centres. More than half of the businesses surveyed have at least 50% of their data centre needs outsourced, with increased demand from midsized organizations showing interest in outsourcing from previous years.

Is outsourcing right for your organization? To help you think through this - consider the following questions:

  • Does your business have an in-house server room / data centre that is in need of an upgrade or has been outgrown?
  • Do the capital cost, upgrades to latest technology, day to day maintenance and management create stress for you and negatively affect your cash flow?
  • Are your servers located in an unsecure, inadequately cooled room without power redundancy?
  • Is predictable and reliable up-time critical to your business?

Coupled with the pressure to cut cost, answering yes to any these questions makes data centre outsourcing invaluable to your organization.
