April 16, 2014 by · Comments Off on Strong demand for MigSolv’s new Hybrid Data Center 

Norwich, UK – MigSolv, the specialist data center 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 a nd 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.”

Data Centres Ignoring Green As Drive To Cut Costs Magnifies

February 19, 2009 by · Comments Off on Data Centres Ignoring Green As Drive To Cut Costs Magnifies 

Webmaster NewsLondon – A survey of registered attendees at this year’s Data Centre World has revealed that only one in eight data centre managers cite a desire to go green as the key reason for implementing energy saving solutions, falling from one in three this time last year. The effects of the credit crunch mean that reducing the carbon footprint of data centres has become less of a priority than ever before; saving money is still the number one reason for lowering power consumption in today’s data centres, according to the new survey released today by the organisers of Data Centre World, the UK’s first and only data centre expo (24th and 25th February 2009 at the Barbican, London).

The more positive news is that over two thirds of data centres are proactively implementing policies and technologies that will enable them to minimise power consumption. Although the primary reason given for this was to save money during today’s difficult economic climate, the fact still remains that any reduction in power is a positive thing for the industry – especially when data centre energy requirements are expected to double over the next four years. Any curb on this will be a welcome shift for the sector. Read more
