“Server hugging” sounds cute but it’s far from it. It is a phrase coined by market analysts. It describes any person who doesn’t feel safe unless they can physically touch their server. That usually means housing your IT infrastructure on premises.
Although this sounds well and good, no in-house server room is setup to compete with the services offered by a modern co-location facility – in terms of safety, security, disaster recovery, backup and connectivity. How much damage would your company face if your internal server room was compromised? Are there any benefits to clinging to your company’s server room or is it all risk?
Downsizing, diversifying, or relocating are ways to adapt to changing staff dynamics, cut costs or modify business operations. Being tied down by your IT infrastructure in one location can limit your options.
