Data centers are one of the most costly and valuable assets of an enterprise. Each center hosts sophisticated technology worth thousands of dollars, and each of these devices plays a specific role in enterprise data security and management.
Managing data centers can be an undertaking for enterprise IT departments. Ensuring devices are used to their best ability, coordinating transitions and securing end-of-life services can be overwhelming for IT professionals. One way to alleviate this stress is working with a certified data center service provider.
Here are four benefits of working with a data center service provider:
- A certified data center services provider prioritizes client data security through all phases of a data center’s lifecycle. To ensure complete information security, providers should implement a fully-documented data security and erasure procedure that allows clients to follow along every step of the way.
- Improved cost-efficiency
- Data center services provide maximum efficiency during each step of a data center’s life. Working with a provider allows minimum downtime during installation and removal, and trustworthy transportation of data center assets nationwide.
- Maximized ROI
- Data center equipment is valuable, but pricey, meaning upgrading devices is a costly endeavor. Once equipment has reached the end of its use, data center providers will identify refurbishment and resale opportunities to maximize return on assets, creating opportunities for new revenue.
- Guaranteed compliance
- Violating HIPAA, employee privacy, power usage and device disposal legislation can result in costly fines and loss in investor confidence. Certified providers ensure all data center processes stay compliant with local, state and federal legislation, and provide necessary documentation of certification.
Data center management is a costly, but valuable aspect of enterprise information technology operations. The best way to mitigate data center management concerns is to work with a certified data center service provider.
