When Choosing your Data Center, Consider These Things

Lately, business growth and technological advancements have consistently aided each other towards further improvement. With every new business requirement, technology has stepped up to provide an effective solution.  Data centers enable businesses to protect critical data and systems in a secure environment, while allowing managers to focus staff and capital on their core business, rather than day-to-day IT tasks.

Choosing a data center is an important decision for your business.  You will want to be able to rely on your data center so that your customers can rely on you. Here are some important factors to consider when choosing the data center that is right for you:

Customer Support – Choose a data center that can give you the customer support you require.  You’ll want a data center that can give you 24/7/365 access to a qualified employee who is able to support your needs. Also, check the employee turnover ratio — enormous high employee turnover could be a red flag.  You want the assurance that you will be working with a trustworthy and qualified company.  Atlantic.Net has provided customers with 24/7/365 in-house customer support (all human communication) since 1994.

Finances – A data center that is tied down to certain investments or paying back loans has limited availability to adapt and grow with the market. Being able to grow with technology advancements allows clients to always have the best possible products.  Atlantic.Net has little to no debt.

Infrastructure – You are looking for a data center with a strong and secure platform that you can rely on.  Atlantic.Net takes pride in taking advantage of the many open source technologies to pass the cost savings to its customers.  We offer a secure, robust platform for carriers, competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs), Internet service providers (ISPs) and other bandwidth-intensive businesses to gain rapid access to superior network and facility resources.

Guaranteed Resources – Choose a data center that guarantees that resources will be available when you need them.  Atlantic.Net’s Network Operations Center ensures sufficient bandwidth capacity to accommodate your organization’s needs.

Data Security & the Facility – Be sure the data center facility you choose is secure, has easily accessible cabling, is free of excess moisture, and away from any windows.  At Atlantic.Net, our facility offers state-of-the-art redundant systems, guaranteed power, temperature/humidity control, and security.
