Data is the most important asset for any organization, but managing and governing that data while accounting for security and compliance can be difficult. Data centers are a vital part of data management and play a crucial role as the central point of access for data and essential business applications.
Data management is critical for every company to improve business agility by ensuring up-to-date information is available anywhere, anytime to the employees who need it most. That’s why businesses are moving their existing resources to data centers to help with data management.
Data centers are no longer just an additional storage facility — they have emerged as a key business parameter. They’re no longer a luxury, they’re expected for businesses that need to enhance their IT infrastructure systems and support requirements with superior connectivity services, allowing for a greater competitive edge.
Data center colocation is a key component in today’s business digital transformation strategy. Colocation enables businesses to offload the complex IT data management of their mission-critical data, instead opting for more managed services. However, without a secure and reliable connection between customers, employees and data centers, businesses can’t deliver their products, services and information.

Business data center infrastructure cannot be a cookie-cutter approach. Organizations need to seek out a facility that meets their unique demands both today and in the future.
While some may need the security that comes with a Tier 4-classified data center, other organizations find that a Tier 1 facility will meet their needs. Still, others may require connections to data centers that are compliant with HIPAA, US-EU Safe Harbor, SSAE 16 or PCI certifications.
Recognizing that our customers need connectivity options, Horizon takes an agnostic approach to keep you connected. We offer connections to a dozen data centers that meet a variety of certifications and tier levels while providing a range of options for services and security. It’s all part of our long-standing commitment to remarkable customer care and serving as a strong network partner for your business or organization.
