Download the free Forrester report

As technology demand accelerates to support the digital business, data centers are running low on physical resource capacity. When provisioning new data center capacity, infrastructure and operations (I&O) pros must decide whether to build a new facility or look to third-party services to expand. For most regions in North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, high-quality colocation, managed, hosted, and cloud services are readily available, expanding the service options.

Forrester’s report, Weigh the Economic Factors of your Data Center Ecosystem Transformation by Sophia I. Vargas, will help I&O pros understand the economic elements of the decision to build the business case for new capacity, and when to use what model – retail colocation, wholesale colocation, managed hosting, or and cloud services.

In this Forrester report, you’ll learn:

  • Smart economics is about making money, not just saving money
  • With a wealth of options, you need to use the right tool for the job
  • Expensive people are often wasted on the wrong work
