When opting for a data center – carrier neutrality is an important factor to consider. Not only does it provide you with options when it comes to interconnectivity services, but because you can also find a solution that meets your specific needs. In this blog we are sharing the top benefits of a carrierneutral data center.
1. Reduced risk of data loss
When you are in a facility that offers several carriers, you have the capability of having multiple carriers connected to your business network. In the event of an outage or failure of one carrier, you can rely on another carrier for connectivity so that your mission critical systems will stay up-and running.
2. Expansion capability
When opting for a data center, you are teaming up with a provider that can meet your needs now and for the years to come. Every carrier’s network is different and you should place your mission critical systems in a facility where all carriers are available to you. This means you can take advantage of the options and flexibility in the design of your network. You decide which network suits your business best and can scale with your business needs over time.
Undergoing a migration to a new data center is a significant investment in time and money, you probably don’t want to move again. In a carrier neutral data center, you’re not committed to one provider and you can make a change when needed without having to move physically. Businesses who are migrating to a new data center can bring along their preferred carrier without worrying about changing to a new set of IP’s and can change carriers to ensure better connectivity when needed. In a carrier specific facility, your options for changing will likely be limited to just one carrier.
