It’s critical that companies create a global data center strategy. While they take time to do properly, a well designed plan will allow you to quickly expand and scale data center operations by adding coverage in the US and around the world. A good global strategy also ensures that design requirements are consistently met regardless of the hyperscale data center location.
A new white paper from Iron Mountain provides seven key considerations for organizations looking to build a strong global strategy. The paper covers site selection and risk factors, hub selection, and availability, cost and type of power. Connectivity, the ability to expand, consistency, and global ambition are also discussed.
The paper explains each of these key considerations, including why they are crucial to a successful global strategy. The report also lists the top data center markets in North America, Europe, and Asia, as well as several emerging markets.
