Gartner Best Practices for Selecting a Colocation Provider

Buyers of colocation services are now commonly interested in far more than simply leasing space. In addition to traditional facility differentiators (eg: power density and resilience), other services (such as interconnection capabilities and managed services) enable colocation to play a more strategic role in global infrastructure delivery and network design.

However, as no two data centre facilities or providers are the same, I&O leaders must approach the colocation market using a structured approach that considers long-term data center strategy, opportunities for consolidation, and the use of a robust framework to determine appropriate suppliers and facilities.

This complimentary Gartner best practice research provides a three-step process and key considerations for selecting colocation facilities and vendors.
