Why Reliability Matters:

  Today’s organizations—and the people they serve—rely on data, making data center reliability mission critical. In addition to the direct costs of downtime, more intangible costs—such as reputational damage, decreased customer retention, lower employee satisfaction, and overall lack of confidence—can skyrocket as well.

The challenge then is deciding whether to make the needed investments to ensure your existing data center is reliable or to consider colocation with a data center provider.
