DCaaS Offers Flexibility and Growth in Data Centers

The need to process data is growing at an astonishing rate. For example, according to Cisco, the world now processes 2.5 billion gigabytes of data every day. This of course directly ties back to data center capacity requirements, which has given rise to the data center as a service, or DCaaS. 

"A DCaaS facility — where state-of-the-art equipment, space, and bandwidth are available for rent — can provide a great opportunity for companies large and small to take advantages of DCaaS services to manage future changes in technology," says Paul Schlattman, senior vice president and consulting practice leader at ESD. "When subscribing to a colocation (co-lo) company that offers DCaaS, tenants can request rack installations and other services to quickly support new IoT applications. DCaaS has become the third-generation data center era. (The first two were standard colocation and wholesale.)"
