“As businesses continue to empower remote workers and fortify their digital footprints in response to pandemic-induced changes, colocation has emerged as an essential pillar in a successful hybrid IT strategy,” said
Findings within the report include:
- Increased security and flexibility/scalability were reported as top two primary reasons to migrate workloads to colocation solution
- Thirty-five percent surveyed say that colocation lowers operational costs and improves TCO
- Almost half (46%) of respondents say their companies are gravitating to an operating expense model for IT spending
- Ninety-three out of 100 IT leaders say they are confident their colocation partners can enable future transformation initiatives
- Ninety percent of respondents say interconnection to cloud providers is critical or important
One survey respondent, a senior director of a SaaS provider, stated “I don’t want to build my own data center – our competency is designing, engineering and maintaining software. I don’t want to get into the business of peering with carriers. Those are things that a colocation business provides.”
“The findings in this year’s State of the Data Center Report reflect what we are hearing from our customers and prospects,” said
