European Colocation Best Practices Guide
November 10th, 2010 By: Kevin Normandeau
Finding a colocation partner in Europe can be a daunting task, especially for companies based in North America. Data Center Knowledge writer, and veteran IT professional John Rath has created a white paper on ‘How to Select a European Colocation Data Center.’ The paper provides expert insight in to areas like how to conduct vendor due diligence and provides a handy colocation check list.
“With over half a billion people, 50 countries and dozens of languages spoken, establishing or growing a business in Europe can be both daunting and full of opportunity”, said John. “Exploring the options and obstacles with placing valuable information technology infrastructure in Europe can be an equally intimidating challenge.” This paper analyzes the pros and cons of various IT strategies from building your own data center and examines the benefits of selecting the right colocation partner.
This European Colocation Best Practices Guide, sponsored by Interxion, also provides cases studies on how companies like HP, Quest and NASDAQ successfully expanded their IT operations in Europe.
