As more and more business is transacted over the internet and more businesses leverage web or cloud-based applications and move their key applications servers from their offices’ dusty IT closets (with poor supporting power, cooling, fire-suppression and connectivity infrastructure) to purpose built data centers or colocation facilities, understandably their primary concern is now providing reliable and redundant internet and secure data network connectivity for each of their business locations.
