Choosing a cloud-provider with a dedicated data center for their clients is always the best option. This provides your business with full tech support and engineering services for quality control, maintenance of the infrastructure, and ongoing monitoring of all hardware and software.
Not all facilities and data center services are the same. Getting to know what the various companies offer and how their data centers compare to others in the market is particularly important for companies with a global market, or those planning to expand their online reach.
Range of Services Offered
This may be the most essential of the considerations when comparing data center services. While all services offer the basics in tech support, performance, and flexibility, not all offer backup and disaster recovery services, storage capacity, and other services that may be required now or in the future.
Choosing a provider and data center with the capacity to grow with your business and offer the services necessary in the future is crucial.
Locations and Connectivity
An important part of all data center services is not just the ability to deliver the service, but to have the connectivity and the location to provide the best quality online experience for end-users. Companies with multiple locations for data centers and proven, reliable connectivity with numerous providers are optimal.
Pricing is always a factor in any services considered by a business. Pricing does vary between data centers and between the services offered. Lower priced services typically provide only the basic services, leaving the company with additional costs per month for add-on service requirements.
