What are the cost components of your data center?

What are the cost components of your data center? How are you spending money to maintain your computing environment?

In-house data centers spend money on

  • Floor space or real estate
  • Power to the servers and network equipment (sometimes untracked)
  • Power to the air conditioners needed to cool the server and network equipment (often untracked)
  • Generators, power conditioning/UPS, HVAC systems
  • Security systems
  • Maintenance of the generators, HVAC and UPS ad security equipment
  • FTE support for the facilities side of IT
  • Bandwidth and transport: limited choices and retail pricing from telecom carriers

Companies using outsourced data centers often spend on

  • Rack space in shared environments
  • Power costs based on something other than usage
  • Expensive private suites
  • Bandwidth and transport: limited choices and retail pricing from telecom carriers

Regardless, companies often purchase inferior services:

  • No hardened data center facilities, or facilities not built to withstand a regional disaster
  • Limits on power per rack, cooling and space that can drive up future costs
  • Significant single points of failure in the power and cooling systems
  • Time and money for internal IT resources to solve facilities and physical plant problems
