Very many companies in Germany are now turning to colocation solutions and demand is increasing. Colocation service providers must create ideal conditions that optimize IT outsourcing for their customers. Customers' requirements regarding colocation services have evolved enormously in recent years and are often extremely individual and specific. There is also considerable pressure to modernize in the field of IT infrastructure. Colocation service providers are therefore confronted by many different challenges, both in terms of cabling and with regard to compliance with Service Level Agreements. And this situation is being made even more complex by the arrival of new regulations in the field of IT security.
Four expert presentations on the topics:
- Savings in costs plus reduced space requirements through scalable cabling
- Providing services for trouble-free, flexible colocation operation
- Successful, problem-free relocation to a colocation data center
- What the KRITIS regulation means for colocation service providers in practice
