3 Things to Look For in a Data Center Partner

A company’s data and IT infrastructure are essentially what a business runs on, which is why it is crucial to determine the right place to host them. With a number of options to choose from, it may seem easy to pick a data center partner. But as the saying goes, the devil is in the details, and in choosing the right partner, there are key attributes that will help you decide which data center partner to entrust your data to.

Here are three things to look for:

1. Security

A majority of today’s businesses revolve around data and IT infrastructure. Suffering from any kind of digital or physical security breach could pose huge risks and even compromise business continuity. It is of top importance that your data centers are impregnable enough to protect your enterprise data and IT infrastructure or else face the possible consequences. The physical theft of sensitive information, for example, will ultimately lead to the loss of customers. This is why BeeInfoTech PH’s The Hive data center is designed with 7-plus layers of advanced physical security measures to ensure only authorized personnel have access to the facility.

In terms of cybersecurity, BeeInfoTech PH ensures peace of mind as it provides products that fend off distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks and many other forms of cyber threats. It also offers a bespoke Security Operations Center (SOC) that caters to your particular demands and requirements.

2. Carrier-neutrality and connectivity

It is fundamental to consider the network connectivity of your data center partner and ensure that they offer a wide variety of connectivity options. Being flexible is critical especially during disasters—when one network is compromised, your data should still have access to another network to stay online. Carrier-neutral data centers, such as those we offer in BeeInfoTech PH, are independent from internet service providers (ISPs) and therefore have higher agility when switching between networks. Ultimately, this provides seamless connectivity and better accessibility on your end as carrier-neutrality guarantees that your racks will not only be connected to a single pre-set network but can also be linked to other network options.

BeeInfoTech PH understands that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Carrier-neutrality, in addition to our offerings that conform to each client’s specific needs, gives us enhanced flexibility to accommodate every need for digital transformation.

3. Sustainability

Data centers are one of the most power-hungry facilities and the exponential rise of data usage fuels more demand for power. Because of this, it is essential that a data center fulfills its responsibility not only to its clients but also to the environment. The ideal green data center implements innovative green practices, including energy savings, water efficiency, and reduction of carbon emissions, while still delivering optimal service to businesses.

BeeInfoTech PH’s The Hive data center was specifically designed to reduce carbon emissions and power consumption. It is being built to meet Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) standards, an internationally recognized green building certification entity that verifies whether a building was designed with strategies aimed at improving sustainability.

At BeeInfoTech PH, our customers are always the top priority. Partner-centric and collaborative, we adhere to global standards of security and compliance to push and enable businesses to achieve their goals. With our network connection across Asia and the rest of the world, BeeInfotech PH utilizes global technologies and makes them easily accessible to local businesses to drive accelerated digital transformation in the Philippines.
