In surveys of Data Center managers carried out in the past 5 years there are some interesting 'conclusions'
* Over 40% of companies are confident that their mission critical IT infrastructure is housed in a ‘fit for purpose’ environment despite being located within an office building.
* Over 70% of companies consider the overall resilience of the data centre as the most important feature determining 'fit for purpose' when choosing where to house their IT.
* Over 60% of companies consider the data center must be 'fit for purpose' to ensure secure and continuous 24/7 IT service delivery.
* Around 50% of companies are now saying that energy efficiency is a key factor in determining 'fit for purpose' in their data center strategies.
This webcast takes an agnostic view of these somewhat conflicting requirements and asks what companies might consider when determining what 'fit for purpose' really means to them when planning their data center strategies.
