The majority of data center projects today are custom builds, delivering exactly what the owner wants, but at a cost. These data centers are expensive, time-consuming, and difficult to scale, taking from 18 months up to 3 years, incurring high up-front costs. The drive to deliver IT flexibility in support of business agility means that few organizations can afford the investment.
This white paper from Colt details an option for data center construction that bridges the gap between custom design and containerized construction. It explains the need for this “off the shelf” data center design, or data center consumerisation, and its implementation within the Colt organization. Next, it describes how consumerisation benefits business agility, quality, choice, and cost savings. Lastly, it discusses the success seen in the implementation of consumerisation thus far, and the hope for further growth in the future.
