Data Center Hosting
Driven by the adoption of cloud by enterprises, primary data centers are now working with virtual ones. This hybrid ecosystem poses certain challenges like choosing the right data center location and hosting services provider for IT infrastructure. The public cloud assets should also be equipped to leverage the high-throughput, low-latency connections with reliable security framework. For a 21st Century Enterprise, cloud exchange capabilities are a key component of hosting data centers, enabling them to leverage a seamless connectivity to the public cloud infrastructure. It is imperative that the organization develops a cohesive data center outsourcing strategy that balances cost, risk, and agility. The enterprise should also consider the complexity of new application designs and service levels.
HCL has a network of over 250 data center sites across the world and has collaborated with specific leading cloud exchange providers, facilitating hybrid cloud connectivity options from the managed data center itself. We identify partners through a Certified Alliance Partnership Program (CAPP). The CAPP program also enables HCL to get better data center hosting rates and services.
