The Data Center Dilemma: Build Your Own or Outsource

Kevin Brown, VP of Data Center Offer at Schneider Electric delivers a keynote at Uptime Institute Symposium 2013: One of the key decisions facing business stakeholders is whether it’s better to own or rent your next data center. There is no universal right or wrong answer to this question. In addition to cost, many decisions are driven by strategic factors such as deployment timeframe, cash sensitivity, regulatory issues, and company culture. This presentation will introduce a model to help evaluate these complex issues. It will then review the emergence of published reference designs, such as OpenCompute, and prefabricated data centers and how they are impacting this decision process.
