Case study: Data centre consolidation and migration

A global oil and gas company in the US. had three operational data centres - in Houston, Oklahoma City and Calgary. With these data centres being located in leased towers, they had an increased risk from facilities-related issues. Natural disasters in these areas also affected the operation of the data centres. The data centres themselves were running out of space and power as the leased spaces were not built to formal data centre standards.

The company was also building a new corporate facility and needed to move out of the leased buildings without endangering the safety and sustainability certifications of the new facility. A high-level ROI study indicated savings of up to US$40 million over 20 years with the building of a new facility over upgrading existing facilities.
