New GlassHouse Whitepaper Breaks Down In-house, Colocation and Cloud Data Center Strategies

GlassHouse Technologies:

What:

         

Companies have a range of options for data center deployment: in-house, colocation or cloud. While each of the three types has its own strengths and weaknesses, there’s no one-size-fits-all strategy for every organization. GlassHouse Technologies has published a whitepaper, “Cloud, Colo or In-house?”, putting these three data center options in context. The whitepaper explains how a customized, tiered approach combining different data center types can best address the constantly changing needs of organizations.

 

Why:

The modern data center faces a serious challenge: it must be robust, scalable, secure and energy-efficient, all while remaining within budget and staff constraints. However, by strategically tiering in-house data centers, colocation and cloud in combinations that prioritize applications and processes, businesses can reduce downtime, their energy footprint and IT overhead, and achieve maximum efficiency. Thus, with the right planning, organizations can successfully navigate the array of data center options and achieve their business objectives without spending resources on unnecessary data center components.
 

Who:

Organizations looking to better understand different types of data centers and achieve the greatest service levels, cost efficiency and business benefits from their infrastructure investments will benefit from the whitepaper.
 

When:

GlassHouse executives are immediately available to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of various data center approaches, including implementing a tiered strategy that takes full advantage of in-house, colocation and cloud.
 

Where:

The whitepaper is now available on GlassHouse’s website.
