4. Why should I use OPEX model for my Data Center requirement rather than having a CAPEX
model of establishing my own site?
With budget constraints, setting up own Data Center is an expensive proposition both in terms of money, time and deployment of human resources. Apart from the high capital costs, there are high day-to-day operational costs like electricity & skilled resources. Routinely scaling infrastructure for new business requirements or upgrading to the latest technology is also not feasible. In this scenario, it makes sense to outsource these services to a carrier-neutral Data Center and focus on core business. Third party Data Center service provider like ITI can provide you highly available, secure & scalable Data Center space with best-in-class service levels backed by multiple level redundancies at all levels along with best-in-class tools, technology, resources and business processes. This also allows you to start with your immediate requirement and grow the infrastructure as per business growth rather than investing in oversized infrastructure. These are some of the major advantages of going for an OPEX-based Services model rather than building own Data Center in a CAPEX model.
