Gartner defines a data center as a centralized environment that provides support for computer equipment in a secure facility. This includes the underlying network infrastructure, and the processes and organization that support the environment. Data Center Outsourcing (DCO) deals are mostly a bundle of standardized managed services and customized transition and transformation services. They may include the management of client premises and colocation, hosting, IUS and managed cloud service components.
Gartner defines IUS as the provision of outsourced, industrialized, asset-based IT infrastructure managed services below the business application functional layer. IUS is defined by service outcomes, technical options and interfaces, and is paid for based on resource usage, allocation or number of users served.
