The traditional data center model is like the old cable TV and music models, which forced you to buy and pay for all 189 channels and all ten songs, even if you only wanted a few. The evolved data center model, in contrast, is like the new TV and music models – you only buy the show or the song you want. Where the traditional colocation model locks you into long-term contracts for power you may not use, the evolved pay- for-use model eliminates the need to forecast IT demand and provides control over capacity. As a result, you reduce waste and align your data center to the needs of your business. Aligned Data Centers is the first to bring this evolved data center model to the marketplace.
If you are like most organizations that, according to 451 Research, only use 56% of the power they have been allocated, then you are paying a lot more than you need to.
