Electrorack Releases Latest Article on its ePulse Blog: Colocation vs Internal Data Center

Anaheim, CA – May 23rd, 2012 – Electrorack, a Legrand Group brand, recently posted its article, Colocation vs Internal Data Center, on its ePulse Info Center at www.electrorack.com.

“The question of how to best manage data is difficult for any company to answer,” said Todd Schneider, Electrorack’s Director of Marketing. “Colocation and internal data centers have become popular choices, but choosing between the two requires each company to assess a variety of factors including costs, goals, and how much control and oversight it wants over its data center.”

Excerpt from Colocation vs Internal Data Center:

As data processing and storage requirements grow for companies, they are often faced with the decision to build their own data center or outsource their requirements to a colocation facility. There are pros and cons for both of these approaches and the right choice will usually depend on the organization’s particular circumstances.

Colocation refers to the leasing of rack space, and possibly equipment, from a colocation provider. Operating an internal data center will mean that that the company or organization will set up and manage its own data center, including servers, rack space, security, environmental control system and power supply. 

“Some companies may find running their own data center to be cost prohibitive, simply because of the costs required to set up and maintain a secure and efficient data center,” added Todd. “But, those companies may also find that a hybrid approach works for them – operating an internal data center while utilizing a colocation facility to protect against larger disasters that require more security than the company can provide on its own.”
