Data is the essence of any company and without it, companies would not understand client insights, determine effectiveness and productivity, make decisions, effectively manage remuneration, or perform day-to-day tasks.
Any company can become a target of hacking and have their data compromised or damaged. This could inadvertently lead to an operational shutdown or huge losses. Data security protocols within organisations cannot be overemphasised with the number of cyberattacks recorded daily. Securing important data is crucial to ensuring data is available when you need it.
Having established the importance of data security, we would like to point out that the average cost of setting up a data centre costs between $10 million and $12 million per megawatt, with costs typically front-loaded onto the first few megawatts of deployment.
Data security can only be achieved through a carefully orchestrated balancing act of three factors:
1. Selecting and deploying effective security measures
2. Working within budget limits
3. Reducing liability exposure
Data security is an effective way of balancing those factors. Organisations must use security measures that are effective at reducing loss and preventing crimes to their property, their employees, and most importantly, their customers. These security measures must not exceed the budget and preferably, provide a measurable return on investment. The security program should also effectively manage risks to the organisation and its assets, including liability exposure for negligent or inadequate security.
Data Centre Colocation is a procedure through which an organisation can rent a physical office space, network, and other resources within an existing data centre to deploy its own data centre. It enables sharing the existing pool of data centre resources to be used for deploying and accommodating data centre services for external organisations. Such data centres are also known as Carrier Hotels or Colos.
Typically, Data Centre Colocation is utilised within a Data Centre Colocation facility. Such a facility is like a Data Centre having sufficient floor space available for rental. The Data Centre Colocation facility provides the floor space, cooling, power and physical security whereas organisations bring in their own servers, storage and/or applications. Data Centre Colocation primarily enables organisations to deploy a data centre facility without the need to buy or manage it.
