What is this white paper about?
Collocation or hosting customers’ servers at a provider’s physical location includes hosting critical non-web related data, storage services, disaster recovery, and managed services. Demand for collocation services is very high, as customers wish to improve availability and reliability, improve performance and lower cost.
Many companies rely on data centers not only for hosting their data but also for providing secondary backup sites and disaster recovery (DR) options, over multiple industries (finance, governemetn, healthcare, IT providers, etc.). To this end, customers have identified a number of important factors in choosing a data center: bandwidth, security, redundancy, power, disaster recovery options, expansion, monitoring, and managed services provided.
PacketLight’s 1U WDM solutions support data centers in achieving these requirements.
