The goal of achieving a successful digital transformation is driving many companies to invest in colocation — for its flexibility with hybrid infrastructure models — which means competition for next-generation colocation providers is heating up. The more proactive and informed IT leaders can be when considering colocation solutions, the greater advantage they have in selecting a provider that meets their digital transformation goals.
The challenge of optimizing organizational systems and processes for a technology-first marketplace — all while managing infrastructure and “keeping the lights on” — is leading many IT leaders to embrace hybrid environments that encompass a range of on-premise, remote and cloud deployments.
Hybrid IT provides a foundation to support businesses in the digital era. IT leaders are increasingly drawn to this model because it arms their teams with greater flexibility, enabling technicians to select and configure the optimal infrastructure based on their business’ needs.
As hybrid IT gains momentum, colocation data centers play an important role in deployments. Correction — the right colocation data centers play a key role.
