Enabling the Hyperscale Future


While many providers can meet the space, power and cooling needs of large hyperscale players, customer experience and an individualized level of service can be a critical differentiator when it comes to deciding on a colocation partner.

Keeping it carrier-neutral

When it comes to establishing and maintaining flexibility in a data center facility, carrier-neutrality is a great place to start. Now that demands are sky-high, large customers don’t need preconceived or pre-set strategies—they need custom options. As facilities that are not owned or operated by a single Internet Service Provider, carrier-neutral data centers offer access to multiple carriers and providers, allowing for greater freedom of choice. In this environment, tenants are not subjected to the effects that a single-provider monopoly may bring, instead leveraging more ideal flexibility. If one carrier cannot meet the data-intensive needs of the hyperscaler in question, other carriers with alternative capabilities are available to serve their needs.

This flexibility in provider extends even further, offering the added benefit of amplified reliability and redundancy. By allowing tenants a choice in connectivity provider for critical IT systems, they can optimize their access and ensure their always-on standards are met at all times, even if one provider goes down. Moreover, natural competition within this environment results in cost-effective options that wouldn’t otherwise be available. It’s for these reasons that carrier-neutral colocation has become the data center standard for the growing needs of the enterprise.

Hands-on, boutique insight

In a market of changing needs and an endless array of infrastructure options designed to meet them, service is one of the defining factors of a data center provider. While many providers can meet the space, power and cooling needs of large hyperscale players, customer experience and an individualized level of service can be a critical differentiator when it comes to deciding on a colocation partner.  

Providers that deliver full-scale turnkey services can ensure from the very beginning that tenants are getting a strategy that will meet and support all their goals. In-house teams with thorough expertise are an asset, working closely with customers throughout every step to ensure that immediate needs can be met while future-proofed options can be ready for whatever growth comes down the line. With a data center provider that understands the scalability and flexibility needs of large players, the challenge (and the success) is shared, which means that building the ideal, tailored strategy begins even before contracts are signed.

Data center partners that offer 24x7x365 help and support from in-house certified technicians, engineers and electricians, along with virtual hands support options, provide a more responsive approach to the ongoing needs of their clients. Additionally, outsourcing building and management to a provider that is prepared to comprehensively handle the deployment pays dividends for the customer, allowing them to maximize savings by optimizing their outsourcing strategy.

In this way, hands-on, trusted partners ensure that large clients get the physical capabilities they need, but with the added benefit of unparalleled ease and peace of mind.

Building into the future

As data demands grow in size, complexity and urgency, capable infrastructure solutions grow in their importance every day. As the foundation upon which IT strategies and digital success are built, allying with a scalable, flexible and reliable data center is one of the most vital decisions that large entities can make as they prepare for the future. Subsequently, as data center providers seek to attract hyperscalers and empower their growth, the most scalable and flexible facilities remain the ones that can understand tenant needs and check all the boxes. Providers that, regardless of client growth trajectory, work closely to deliver the exact right solution while remaining neutral, safe and thorough will continue to be the cornerstone of progress for the hyperscale future.
