Our Value Advantage based on unparallelled TCOIT managers have to be careful in picking the right areas for investment and focus on the core competences that are critical for future success. Managing your own data center is not likely to be a strategically important component in that strategy, which is why increasing numbers of companies are outsourcing their data center operation to third party colocation providers. However The logic behind this trend is superior Total Cost of Operation (TCO).
No Time for Downtime?TCO includes all relevant costs, including expected downtime costs, which is a function of likelihood of a data center outage depending on its Tier level multiplied with the cost of a data center outage. The Ponemon Institute’s 2016 Cost of Data Center Outage study quantifies the average cost of an unplanned data center outage to $740,357 for the 67 US data centers in the study.

Green Means Lower CostGreen Data Centers are gaining momentum with concerns around global warming and increased CO₂ emissions. Being green is particularly relevant to data centers given that they consume enormous amounts of power and also increase heat emissions in the surrounding area. The trend to move to green data centers is gaining traction with much higher growth rates than for the overall market. Reasons why range from a desire to lead development, to a fear of being left behind. EcoDataCenter is the world’s greenest data center, a contribution to a better and more sustainable world.
We Beat Our Competitors’ TCO 100% of the TimeWe offer an industry leading 100% uptime guarantee for our Tier IV services. Innovative engineering designs with well-proven technical subsystems allow us to provide a certified Tier IV solution at a competitive cost compared to our competitors Tier II solutions (often “self-certified” as Tier III or Tier III+ designs, of which the latter do not even exist).
Reduced CAPEXThird-party data centers achieve economies of scale. Moreover, it is difficult to right-size the in-house data center. If you over-specify and over-build, resources will be wasted. Under-building can be even more costly. Colocation allows you to “pay-as-you-grow.”
Reduced Energy Cost
Electricity prices in Sweden are the lowest in the EU and our PUE is outstanding. Thus, we use less electricity and pay less for it compared to other data centers. Total savings in power cost can be as high as 75% compared to an in-house or colocation data center.
We have specialized expertise and developed processes to design and run extremely efficient operations. We also have greater experience in cost engineered designs and more purchasing power for infrastructure hardware than the traditional in-house data center operator.
