What does critical mean to you?
Increasingly, organizations are colocating their mission-critical equipment within a data center because of the time and cost savings a company can realize as the result of using shared data center infrastructure. To a colocation operator, mission-critical means any interruption in the delivery of power, cooling, or connectivity to critical systems. May firms find that with their IT and communications facilities in the secure hands of a colocation data center, they enjoy the freedom to focus on their core business.
In 2010, the federal government announced the “Federal Data Center Consolidation Initiative.” This initiative will consolidate (colocate) over 1,100 federal data centers during 2011.
EDI’s colocation service offerings in site selection, engineering, and construction observation emphasize the data center as a single system. Detailed sequencing of operation plans are developed providing valuable information about what to do when an event occurs, thereby reducing the risk of interruption due to human intervention. EDI provides colocation clients with design options that incorporate first cost, modular growth, energy efficiency, and concurrent maintainability.
