    Purpose-built VS Retrofit

    In today’s hypercompetitive business climate, you can’t afford distractions.

    Your data center should enable you to focus on your business, not force you to worry about the safety and reliability of your mission-critical infrastructure. However, this is not the case with many of today’s data centers. These retrofit facilities are designed with compromise in mind.

    Compared to retrofit buildings, purpose-built data centers (PBDC) are designed and constructed from the ground up for data center use. These facilities can provide more uptime, better security, more convenience and reduced risk. They offer a certain comfort and confidence that only comes with knowing your infrastructure is colocated in a facility that was purposefully built to house it.

    Our white paper, Purpose-Built vs. Retrofitted Data Centers, details four key areas of difference between retrofit and purpose-built.

    • Strategic Location
    • Weather Resilience
    • Customer-centric Design
    • Robust Infrastructure
