Norwich, UK, 16th April 2014 – MigSolv, the specialist data centre consultancy and data centre operator, today revealed that there has been strong demand for their new ‘Hybrid Data Centre’ or ‘HDC’ which offers on demand, scalable, data centre space. The new offering was developed for customers that can no longer fit into the traditional colocation model where a single rack offers a set amount of power or the wholesale model where everything is built to a specification but takes 6-9 months to deliver. The number of enquiries has risen steeply as customers have become aware of the HDC. The HDC allows organisations to decide on the model, space and power required then have this delivered in days or just weeks; providing the flexibility of wholesale data centres with the service levels of colocation.
Alex Rabbetts, CEO MigSolv said: “In this past recession prudent businesses explored ways to retain a streamlined and cost efficient approach. As a result, outsourcing to managed data centre services has been one of the few areas that have been bringing business benefit through colocation, connectivity and continuity. However, wholesale customers have lost out due to long lead times and a requirement to commit large sums of capital up front.”
The MigSolv Hybrid Data Centre delivers a wholesale data centre with shorter lead times, lower capital cost and a service normally only offered through colocation.
“The HDC offers a speed of delivery and flexibility that is simply not achievable with a traditional wholesale model and is delivered with lower costs”, continued Rabbetts. “What we are offering is fast and flexible facilities for customers that have a short term need for wholesale space.”
MigSolv operates a leading-edge data centre that is located away from the risks associated with urban environments such as London’s docklands, which is safe, secure and environmentally efficient. The new Hybrid Data Centre will be offered from this facility where customers can choose the configuration of environment that they need. This is achievable because the facility is already fitted out and ready to move into and simply needs configuration of the flexible infrastructure to meet the customer’s needs.
Rabbetts concluded, “The Hybrid Data Centre, (or HDC), is the wholesale model of the future. It is evident from the number of enquiries that we have received that customers do not want to wait months and spend huge amounts of capital to move into wholesale data centre space that is offered by property companies. Customers want flexible solutions that are delivered quickly, cost less, and are supported by the highest levels of service.”
