THE TOP 10 CRITERIA TO DISCUSS WHEN TOURING A DATA CENTER

Choosing a data center or colocation provider to house your companyís critical IT infrastructure is a huge decision. Unfortunately, colocation providers donít make it easy to differentiate between them. Many data center tours will have the same components: a sales rep will show you their data centerís battery rooms, cooling equipment, security measures, and generators, all the while assuring you that they are highly secure, reliable, well maintained, invulnerable to natural disasters, and capable of high density computing.

Itís important to know what to look for so you can make an informed decision.
