Data Center Evaluation Checklist

Not all data center providers are created equal.

The current reality for modern enterprises presents a whole new set of challenges. Although many data centers may look alike, not all data centers are created equal. You need to know what to look for when selecting a colocation provider. Prioritize facilities that offer secure, flexible options and a robust marketplace that allows you to scale your business as needed.        

Today, Hybrid IT is more important than ever. Enterprises rely on distributed, diverse, connected Hybrid IT to quickly expand public and private cloud resources, access connectivity zones, or deploy virtual desktop infrastructure. To successfully navigate the unprecedented demand for mission-critical, secure, direct access to cloud and SaaS platforms, use our checklist to assure your data center provider offers reliable and flexible interconnection solutions.
