Data Center Colocation: Bridging In The Knowledge Gap From The Market
With increasing market demands, data centers are becoming bigger, more complex, and more time-consuming to manage, and their needs are starting to outstrip other businesses’ resources. The knowledge and talent gaps in the technology sector mean that it is more difficult for companies to find staff with the right skills to manage ever more complicated and cutting-edge infrastructure. Although we are continuously informed that computing’s future is the cloud, companies are still not quite ready to take the plunge and transfer everything into the cloud. It could be due to enforcement or security concerns, or because they are not willing to give up on their current investment in on-premises infrastructure.
Colocation has become a common choice for businesses looking to reduce the cost of keeping the data center in-house as it helps bridge the gap between on-premises deployments and full cloud migration, no matter what the cause. Colocation allows an IT organization to manage its infrastructure without the pressure of operating a whole data center. The global colocation market is projected to cross $63 billion by 2023, an annual growth rate of 14%, according to a forecast by Market Research Future. The colocation infrastructure offers space for tenants to host their servers in a data center. Although the hosting company owns and manages the data center, the servers are operated by the tenants. The hosting company offers various facilities and additional equipment, including electrical power, cooling, internet access, networking equipment, and space for each server.
