Bradley cited Digital Reality among the most successful providers, adding its “strategy of interconnectivity, called Connected Campus, brings data center, cloud, connectivity and network elements together under a single, secure environment delivering a hybrid multicloud design.”
Flexential offers business continuity and disaster recovery (BCDR) services up front with colocation, Bradley said. It includes 41 data centers across 21 U.S. markets.
“Most clients who are in the market for colocation are in search of a better way to make their business more efficient, a better way to make their business more protected,” Kennedy-Toney said. “A solid colocation strategy can address both of these needs, but first you must have the knowledge to best identify the needs of your client and apply the correct consultation when advising on the solution.”
