If you are reconsidering your on-premises data center, you are not alone. According to a Gartner study, 80% of enterprises are expected to shut down their data centers and move to the cloud in the next few years. Aging equipment and infrastructure, more robust business continuity and disaster recovery, and rising maintenance costs are just some of the reasons why the move to off-premises cloud-based data centers is accelerating.
LOGIX’s Dallas colocation data center provides exceptional uptime and robust security in a fully redundant facility. When you are comparing data centers, there are 10 mission-critical factors you should consider:
- A strategic location.
- Redundant power and cooling systems.
- Redundant and carrier-neutral connectivity.
- High-density environments to reduce operating costs.
- Power density to support current (and future) needs.
- Backups at a geographically diverse location.

- 100% uptime backed by a service-level agreement (SLA).
- Compliance with required regulations.
