Colocation - Case Study

The client, a large MSP spun off from a major technology company and serving Fortune 500 organizations, faced challenges with the time-consuming process of establishing multiple MSAs across its various sub-entities, each with unique and specific infrastructure needs.​

Discovery – The client needed to be in top-tier data centers with guaranteed uptime and power but struggled to get good prices for smaller-scale deployments.​

Data Canopy’s economies of scale would allow them to provide wholesale pricing for the client’s retail opportunities.

Solution – Data Canopy provided a singular MSA that covered all their data centers, simplifying the legal process for the client.​

Data Canopy’s high-quality facilities could support the client’s need for high-density environments (up to 30 kilowatts per cabinet) without additional setup fees or limitations.​

Data Canopy provided the client with a customized pricing structure that resulted in significant cost savings on their base rent and Power Usage Effectiveness (PUE) costs.​


Data Canopy reserved additional space for the client’s future growth, which the client utilized six months later, representing a 41% increase in their overall power and space requirements.​

Data Canopy accelerated the clients’ procurement process by 67%, closing deals 3x faster than their other engagements.​

How much space do you need?

This could be presented as RU (Rack Units), or as cabinets or cages. “Cabinets” and “Racks” are interchangeable terms and are standardly 42 or 48U, with variations available. Cages are enclosures built around a set of cabinets/racks.

How much power do you need?

Power in the data center is measured in kilowatts (kW), or 1000 Watts. There are a couple of ways to calculate this, whether it is based on current measurable load, or for new gear, they all list their max wattage output. Keep in mind that most hardware does not run at max wattage consistently. Your vendor can help you further assess this.

What bandwidth speed do you require?

Speed is the important aspect here, not the amount of data transferred. This is measured in either Mbps or Gbps. One can typically measure current usage if there is an existing environment. If that is not the case, one thing we always suggest is to start low and grow. Most bandwidth solutions within data centers are burstable, meaning you can exceed your committed limit from time to time, and it can be measured and increased as needed.

Are there any compliance requirements?

Most data centers have some level of compliance, but what does your business need? Some examples are HIPAA for healthcare, FISMA for government work, and PCI-DSS for financial services companies. Different industries require different compliances, but this can help to narrow down your data center search.

Do you currently or do you plan to connect to a public cloud?

This matters if you will need access to Direct Connect into AWS or Express Route into Azure. These can help to connect data center environments to public clouds and reduce overall data transfer costs. Even if you don’t have public cloud today, it may be valuable to have the option available in the data center you select for the future.

How long do you plan to reside in the facility?

The average data center customer stays in a chosen facility for 7-9 years. If you know you don’t plan to move in the shorter term, you can typically negotiate a better cost on longer term leases.
