Brisbane - Is Your Business Ready for Colocation?

Businesses colocating their data requirements is a growing trend that can’t be ignored. International enterprises such as DELL, Data #3 and Dimension Data have already begun to enjoy both the technological and financial benefits that comes with colocation.

Are you looking to grow your Brisbane business but feeling bogged down by the constant need to invest in IT infrastructure? Is your IT team wanting to use their skills and resources more effectively but finding themselves constantly required for maintenance of current systems?

It may be that your business is ready for colocation in Brisbane.

Colocation Technology

As a company grows, so does its demand for data and high-speed processes. This can take a huge bite out of both capital and resources just in the maintenance and security of your data (not to mention future resources as these needs grow!)

It is for this reason colocation of Brisbane businesses is on the rise – Data centres, such as Polaris Data Centre in Greater Springfield, are purpose-designed featuring state-of-the-art technology and maintained at the highest level to avoid downtime. Why utilise your own resources to constantly update your own systems when there is a service that does this for you? With technology improving faster than businesses can keep up with, it’s clear why so many Brisbane businesses are colocating their data needs to purpose-built facilities.

Colocation Reduces Costs

Purpose-built facilities also remove the need to worry about infrastructure management and continued investment as their data needs expand. This initial and then continued investment in on-premise data and hardware, not to mention maintenance costs, is increasingly becoming a burden for businesses. Just imagine if your IT team wasn’t bogged down by the need to tend to connectivity and hardware issues and instead were able to dedicate more of their resources towards the application of their skills with your wider team.

Colocation allows your business to remain flexible with its resources, while also ensuring that your IT infrastructure and data needs are maintained and running flawlessly. And the best part? Colocation moves the brunt of your budget into a manageable fee rather than a capital black hole that never seems to stop growing.

Brisbane Colocation Security

Colocating your IT needs to a dedicated data centre also removes any concerns your business may have regarding security. Data breaches can destroy businesses and the investment involved in maintaining both physical and cybersecurity can be enormous.

State-of-the-art data centres such as Polaris Data Centre in Greater Springfield feature world-class security systems designed to Tier 3+ standards. As well as onsite security monitoring 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the facility also features biometric access control measures for each floor, non-stop video surveillance, bullet-proof glass, vehicle traps and is designed to be and situated in a geographic area unaffected by natural disasters.
