Growing businesses recognize that technology is necessary as part of their evolution toward being a much larger organization. Businesses that want to have a strong identity with customers and a solid representation in the marketplace, have a strong internet presence. An example is e-commerce operations that must be available to customers 24x7. Activity that occurs on an e-commerce site connects directly to the customer relations manager database, client billing, and inventory database management. These three areas of information integrate together requiring storage and sufficient capability. Adding to the complexity is the connection of PCs and mobile devices connected to the business’ data.

Businesses rely on the best Data Centers to manage the hardware, software and data management. This resource is a benefit to organizations wanting to save money during their stage of growth. Cost savings are realized without the need for upfront building of a Data Center for costly IT staff to maintain the hardware. Businesses find that services from a Data Center are more cost effective than entering into a huge upfront investment of building a large Data Center infrastructure. Small to mid-sized businesses can rely on Data Center facilities to operate their IT infrastructure. Larger businesses can rely on Data Center facilities as part of an expansion of their existing IT infrastructure.

As a shared resource, the facilities at a Data Center can be scaled to fit the client business’ needs. As the organization grows larger, resources such as data storage and network bandwidth can be increased. Large organizations may rely on Data Center facilities as a disaster recovery site or a mirrored site to provide control in operation. Either way, the Data Center facilities are used to ensure operations continue 24x7.  Businesses rely on a splendid uptime guarantee that Data Center facilities offer. This expectation comes from the client business’ own customers who have the same expectation.

Today's Cloud Computing and e-commerce environments have taken the advantages of the facilities at a Data Center. The IT infrastructure and data processing environment have already been built and tested. The proven operation and functionality of the Data Center facilities satisfy the need for client businesses. This eliminates the upfront cost to build such an architecture. They can subscribe to a level of service from a Data Center Provider that matches their current needs and be ready for upgrades as the need arises.
