Corporates may gamble on business critical services to save costs

Sentrum, a specialist in data centre solutions, has today released new research findings which show that 50% of senior IT decision makers would consider using emerging technologies in the data centre if the price was right, whilst a further 30% also cited an interest in experimenting with new technology irrespective of where it was deployed.

The fourth report in the research series - entitled ‘The Data Centre Gamble’ – was commissioned to question a number of issues facing the data centre sector, one of which was current attitudes towards advancements in plant and infrastructure technologies. Despite some strong claims being made about steps that may be taken to uncover cost savings, 47% of large companies remained resolute that they would only ever use ‘best of breed’ technologies, whilst 31% cited that they would not use a cheaper data centre operator that was offering emerging technologies to reduce costs.
