Why should you colocate your IT infrastructure?

Choosing to relocate your ICT (information and communication technology) into an outsourced (read: colocated) data center in Canada is a sound decision which more and more CIO's, IT managers and business executives are making today. Such a decision can save your company money and valuable resources, while freeing up the time of your IT staff.

Many research firms are asking businesses everywhere what they foresee on the future of operating in-house facilities versus outsourcing this mission-critical function to a professional data center and the results they are expecting.

Research firm Gartner predicts that overall demand for hosted and managed service firms will grow at about 25 percent in the next year, and not just from new accounts with small to mid-sized enterprises.

Even large companies with huge data centers can strongly benefit from outsourced collocation services for their Web sites, database servers, mission-critical applications, email and messaging, eCommerce sales, offsite data storage and disaster recovery. surveyed over 225 businesses in the U.S. and Canada in June 2010 and reported that almost 70 percent of IT executives surveyed said they experienced improved reliability and availability when collocating their IT resources at a professional data center versus housing it in-house.

Furthermore, an additional 54 percent of these respondents were interested in additional services offered by colocation providers.

Partnering with Sun Hosting provides a very cost effective data center solution to enterprises both large and small seeking data center space in Canada.

Some of the many advantages of partnering with Sun Hosting include:
