Not a Simple Task

While choosing space and power may seem like a straightforward selection exercise, there are several factors that impact a company’s colocation infrastructure from specialized power-intensive equipment to governance restrictions to connectivity requirements.  It’s these types of complexities that often add time and difficulty to the data center evaluation process.
