Awhile back, your business made a strategic decision to expand its data center beyond its physical borders. Now, a large amount of your servers live in hosted, third party cloud and colocation facilities around the U.S. and possibly the world. Why did you outsource a large portion of your infrastructure? You did so to save money, increase efficiencies and establish a local presence around your key markets to reduce latency and costs when transmitting data. It made much more sense at the time to partner with companies offering premium infrastructure in managed facilities, than to expand your legacy network (and take on additional CAPEX and OPEX).
