“Yes, You’d Have to Be Crazy to Build Your Own Data Center.”

Are you a data center farmer or an innovator?

Fast-growing cloud providers, social media firms, financial organizations and enterprise companies with large and growing IT footprints often embrace private data centers as a necessity.

This executive report, written by CyrusOne’s CEO Gary Wojtaszek, discusses why many businesses have not yet evolved their thinking to align with new strategic opportunities of efficiently and effectively building a data center.

The report then goes on to share seven critical considerations when deciding between leasing a build-to-suit data center or building a privately-owned data center.
