Responding to trouble tickets manually submitted by our customers is one of the most prevalent and essential tasks that we perform on a daily basis at ServerCentral. Sometimes I take how long I've been sending and replying to trouble tickets for granted. It’s almost automatic.

To Colo Or Not To Colo, There Really Is No Question

“Whether tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous [outages]. Or take arms against a sea of troubles, and by [colo'ing] end them?”
- William Shakespeare

Well maybe that quote is a little melodramatic, but for IT infrastructure managers who have been outraged by an in-house data center outage the words of the great bard hold water. Nearly every growing company must face a data center build vs. buy decision at some point. Too often the decision is made to invest in an in-house computer room for the production environment. Don’t get me wrong, there are a number of reasons to build an onsite data center: local or campus networking, test/dev, proof of concept, and so on. But the housing of production infrastructure is not one of them.

The rise of the large scale data center has made it possible for small and mid-size organizations to leverage world-class infrastructure that they wouldn’t be able to afford otherwise. This, in combination with the commoditization of metro Ethernet and other network products, has made it possible to cost-effectively remove critical infrastructure from the homespun computer room and move it into industrial-strength data centers.
