DC One In Partnership with Systems Integrators Deploying Cloud Computing Services

7th, October 2015

The increasing popularity of a cloud based computing model results in significant cost savings and delivers better and more effective IT solutions which grow responsively and flexibly in line with business demands. Cloud computing offers clients with flexible access to a wide range of services including files, documents, applications and email services.

In order to support the deployment of responsive and reliable cloud based computing the availability of high quality regional data centre infrastructure capacity is essential.

Whist a small number of Systems Integrators chose to build their own in house data centre the reality is that only large national or multi-national organisations have the expertise and finances required to design and build data centres engineered to support reliable cloud services. The capabilities and levels of availability of small in house developed data centres are unlikely to match those of a professionally designed purpose built colocation facility and will fall short of performance demanded by today’s cloud computing clients.

First opened in March 2014 Workspace Technology’s Birmingham based colocation data centre has proven to be popular with a growing number of System Integrators and is supporting a range of cloud computing services for clients across the region. After just 18 months “Pod 1” has now exceeded 30% capacity with a predicted 80% take up within the next 18 to 24 months.

This co-location data centre has been specifically designed by Workspace Technology in order to address the shortfall of high quality regional colocation data centre capacity. This data centre is an ideal base from which Systems Integrators can cost affectively setup and evolve cloud based computing services for their clients.
