Capacity and Consolidation Strategy

 

If you have a data center lease coming due in the next 1 to 3 years, there is a multi-million dollar saving opportunity consolidating in new data center space! “How is that possible?”    The market has changed in the last 5 years.

  • Pricing per kW: Significant price reductions have occurred across nearly every US and International data center market.
  • Power Efficiencies: Newer infrastructure runs more efficiently, resulting in lower PUEs (Power Usage Effectiveness) and lower electric bills.
  • Space Requirements Have Reduced: Technologies are more powerful and smaller in footprint. The cloud and SaaS allow the client to optimize, refresh & reduce their need for technology.
  • Critical System Improvements: New data center facilities offer improved operations, with more redundancy and higher availability.
  • New Regional Incentives: Target locations offer concessions to new tenants, financial incentives for local hiring & tax breaks on new equipment.

POTENTIAL SAVINGS APPLIED TO A TECHNOLOGY REFRESH

And This Doesn’t Consider Other Opportunities for Savings:

  • Can the server or application be turned off?
  • Is the application cloud-ready?
  • Can the server be virtualized or consolidated with other workloads
  • Can hardware be refreshed & right-sized to more energy-efficient platforms

EXTENSIVE BENEFITS TO YOUR BUSINESS

  • Consolidate multiple platforms and implement computer standards
  • Reduce incidents, improve SLAs, RPO & Disaster Recovery
  • Leverage improved energy efficiencies
  • Address End-of-Life / End-of-Support Equipment
  • Upgrade to new network topologies & speeds
