When the facilities team at a healthcare services company set out on a multi-year campus renewal project, they used that opportunity to right-size and modernize the on-campus data center. After moving from on-premise to co-lo several years before, as well as outsourcing the disaster recovery data center, making a campus data center the appropriate size and utilizing modern equipment was helpful from a cost and environmental sustainability perspective.
This led to recapturing nearly 10,000 SF to use for employee amenities and additional meeting and working space. Join us to hear more about this project journey and how we helped the company align with their goals.
