2017 Data Center 100: 20 Data Center Services Providers

Data Center Services Providers

Taking advantage of leading-edge, flexible and cost-effective data center services does not require actually owning a data center. Indeed, third-party providers of data center services including co-location, managed hosting, cloud hosting, disaster recovery and more let customers take advantage of those services as an operating expense. That frees them to focus on their business while others handle the mundane operations.
