Finding the right data centre service provider or equipment to go into your chosen facility is no easy task, and not a process to be taken lightly. With the data centre increasingly cementing its place as the heart of all things ICT, organisations must carefully decide who will become their partner - especially considering it will be a relationship that is maintained over several years, if not a couple of decades.
To date there has been a patchwork collection of resources on Australia's data centre industry and for IT managers and professionals, the time spent just searching for a provider could have been better spent evaluating the partner.
To help rectify this situation and help you along your way in this process we have launched the Computerworld Australia Data Centre Directory. It's located on the Computerworld website at computerworld.com.au/section/data_centre and is open for all to use.
As always, we are keen to hear your feedback and suggestions so we can continually improve and serve our readers. To get in contact with me, please email .
