Whether you have global corporation or single location with customers in different countries, the right colocation strategy is crucial. This whitepaper dissects the relative advantages and disadvantages of three separate approaches to managing expanded demand for colocation services: using a single multinational colocation provider, using a set of independent regional colocation providers, and adopting a “hybrid” approach.
The whitepaper examines in detail why there is no one-size-fits-all solution and why proper analysis must consider the nature of the expanding organization. For example, organizations seeking consistency, simplified partner structures, uniform compliance profiles, standardized problem escalation chains or economies of scale might choose a single multinational colocation provider, whereas organizations having services that vary substantially by region may select multiple colocation providers.
Jointly sponsored by Data Center Knowledge (DCK) and CyrusOne, this whitepaper (titled “Global Colocation: Consolidation vs. Diversification”) assesses these issues and presents supporting data from DCK’s annual survey of more than 200 IT professionals.
