The mid-state colocation provider
Reasons to buy
offers colocation from 55+ data centers situated across nine US states, making it a particularly attractive provider for colocation services between the seaboards. Even better, it provides managed solutions so you can delegate your IT management to DataBank's own technicians.
As mentioned previously, this comes with positives and negatives, and you'll need to balance them in terms of ease-of-use versus less control over your hardware management. The latter, of course, may make DataBank particularly attractive if your business is too small to have an expert IT team. Even if you do have one, the data center locations are among the most accessible of the companies featured here.
As expected, DataBank offers a range of options, not least in terms of cabinets, cages, and custom suites, as well as cloud options. With good connectivity across the US, this could make DataBank an especially attractive colocation provider.
The data center market has changed. Until recently data center operators believed that power, ping, and pipe was sufficient – and it was. However, the IT landscape has changed and customer needs have evolved. Increased diversity of workloads with the use of public and private cloud, and new security and compliance regimes, all have made traditional vanilla space and power offerings obsolete for most enterprise users. Managing support across a fragmented vendor landscape made ensuring uptime, and keeping everyone on the same page, more difficult and time consuming. Enterprise customers do not want multiple vendor relationships in an increasingly hybrid world where colocation, public cloud and private cloud environments need to work in harmony.
Moving mission-critical IT infrastructure to a data center has traditionally been a game of trade-offs: save costs but lose control, gain scalability but sacrifice flexibility, simplify management but give up convenience. DataBank has changed the game entirely with colocation solutions that deliver the benefits you love without the trade-offs you loathe. Whether you’re looking for a single rack deployment or a 10,000 sq. ft. private suite, DataBank has the flexible data center colocation solutions you’ve been looking for: Modern data centers designed to the most rigorous compliance standards with all the space, power and security your IT assets will need far into the future.
