  • Ways to Compare Third Party Data Center Services Provider

    Today there is a great demand for outsourcing data services from data center. To manage such a center, is a very complex business. You need to get involved with processes, people and technology. It will cost a company a lot of money to manage it in-house. There are 3rd party data centers that will provide you their services by buying the equipment on your behalf. They will charge you for the usage of the equipment. Such a centre will be equipped with a dedicated team of people who will manage your equipment based on SLAS.

    If you try to manage systems internally, it will be less cost effective to source the same. Third party providers spread their cost across a large number of customers and thereby pass on a large portion of the savings to their customers. It is better to rent a space rather than spend millions in building your own centre.

    Services Provided To Customers
    Enterprises get many benefits when they weigh what they get for their requirements from their service provider. The cost savings can be separated as indirect and direct cost. You save on owning the IT equipment based on the tenure of the project, cooling systems and building power backup. The collocation site will possess the facility to be connected via various network providers.

    Your network redundancy, your percentage of space utilized, rentals, power consumptions and the entire infrastructure will be professionally managed. You will not need to take any stress as your business begins to grow. Service providers provide their customers value added services enabling them to run their businesses smoothly. Such services include shared services, storage options and securing the infrastructure completely.
    No Issue of Data Breach or Downtime

    A third party data center service provider will abide by the standards to avoid any data breach or downtime issue. Such an issue can also arise in an internal system. You can always control downtime by having a DR contract for your primary site. If you have a primary site in your city you can opt for a DR setup in your provider’s other city location. This is the benefit of taking on third party services.
    Only you will know which provider will meet your needs better, if you look across for different suppliers. You should negotiate with them; scrutinize their history, especially regarding downtime. Only intelligent negotiation will earn you the best services.

    How to Select the Right Company
    When you are selecting a data center company, you need to look into several factors. Factors such as data base requirement, ram, processor, choice of server operating system, hard drives, number of server units etc. Even if you are setting up the hardware and software for your web server, you need to look into the same factors.

    Before you handover everything to the company whose services you wish to hire, you should review their overall track record. You should check their customer service and service feature. A service provider who provides you prime features such as overall server security, data backup, sufficient bandwidth and continuous power backup will be perfect. He should also be professionally managed.

    Well said. These parameters should be considered first, and only then comes price. The price of services should not be the main factor in choosing a service. Quality and safety come first.

      Great post!

      So many people forget that features are the most important part of ANY service. If the service doesn't have the features your looking for it doesn't matter if the other service provider is half of the price.

        I forgot to add that Dreamhost and lifehacker have teamed up to do an amazing deal on hosting at the moment. $19.40 and you get unlimited domains, unlimited emails, 100GB of storage, 24/7 live support and a FREE domain. For anyone who is just starting out this is the best hosting company and it's about $100 cheaper than anywhere else.

        Definitely use this deal. Just google "lifehacker dreamhost". It says it expired on the 31st of July but it is still valid. Contact support and wait for a day. I don't know why you have to wait but it is definitely worth waiting 1 day for!

            Today, there’s a tremendous amount of third party data center build out happening in India. Are providers taking a leap of faith by building huge facilities or are companies really queuing up to utilize these facilities.

              This - "Factors such as data base requirement, ram, processor, choice of server operating system, hard drives, number of server units etc. Even if you are setting up the hardware and software for your web server, you need to look into the same factors." - has nothing to do with the data center itself. Should one is looking where to colocate one's own equipment, it is important: a) What kind of network the data center has; b) Is the facility Tier 1, Tier 2, Tier 3 or Tier 4; c) Is it carrier-neutral; d) What is the Service Level Agreement; e) What is the pricing for remote hands and management fees. There are many other things to consider, but these are the most important ones.

                One way to do more with less is to delegate projects, such as some elements of your information middle. What help and advantages can you anticipate from third-party suppliers, and what perform should stay on premises?

                            I recommend to use the next service also:

Some of the long-term benefits include significant cost-savings, data center optimization and efficiency, a reduction in energy consumption, and much more. When getting started with DCIM solutions one of the most fundamental areas of concern is the initial population and ongoing maintenance of the DCIM database.
