Data center procurement approaches have significantly changed in the past five years. While many CIOs are following a cloud-first approach to commissioning new services, most enterprises struggle to move the majority of their infrastructure to public clouds due to application interdependencies and legacy infrastructure silos.
As profiled in my recently published case study, in 2008 News UK was one of a few news media companies embarking on infrastructure transformation. The firm’s data center transformation delivered a modern, agile, lean, and resilient infrastructure in a colocated data center with automated disaster recovery and business continuity. The case study highlights the significance of migration and consolidation as a step towards collocating your data center or migrating services to the cloud. Below are some highlights from the report:
I&O professionals need to plan a data center migration and consolidation, even if you still plan to invest in your existing data center, use a third-party data center, or scale up using the public cloud. News UK’s experience is relevant for medium-size enterprises struggling to manage operational expenditures while simultaneously providing innovative technology infrastructure at the speed demanded by the business.
