Defining the datacentre needs of 21st century enterprises

Enterprise-owned datacentres are becoming an increasingly scarce sight in the IT world, as businesses move to outsource their infrastructure requirements to the colocation and cloud provider communities. As part of this journey, IT leaders need to work out how much (and which parts) of their infrastructure make most sense to keep in-house or shift off-premise, from both an economic and business agility perspective. Should they retain a private datacentre for mission-critical, legacy applications and continue to shoulder all of the building and management costs that entails, or off-load it to a colocation facility, where they can choose to get someone else to manage it for them? Alternatively, is it time to consider getting out of hardware ownership altogether, and ramp up their use of cloud-based infrastructure services instead?
