How can you unlock hidden potential in your data center to better meet the needs of customers? In our work with diverse data center teams across the country, from tiny to mega — each relies on two keys, data center assessment and innovative solutions.
Cost savings and carbon footprint reduction can sometimes seem like opposing goals. But there’s one place where the two go hand-in-hand: the data center.
According to the Uptime Institute, data centers are responsible for as much as 35 percent of total energy use in non-manufacturing, information-intensive companies. But despite the data center’s heavy power load there is a great opportunity to save money through more effective energy management.
According to research by the Ponemon Institute, the average cost of an unplanned data center outage in 2015 was $740,357. A report by Verizon showed even small data breaches — those with fewer than 100 files lost – may cost between $18,120 and $35,730. The top causes of technology outages include: equipment failure, UPS failure, cybercrime, and human error. What will you do if your technology infrastructure experiences an unexpected failure?
Technology is constantly evolving, and the processes and skills needed to manage it efficiently must evolve as well. Availability, security, and skills are key to ensure continuous efficient operations and the flexibility to meet the dynamic needs of customers.
