Many data center managers are tasked with renewing their corporate colocation data center contracts, often for the first time since many enterprise colo contracts were first signed about 5 years ago. Successfully renewing colocation contracts results in getting more from the colo provider (more services, capacity, contract flexibility, etc.) while spending less, and for the data center manager personally getting internal credit for a well-executed project. Risks are high if the data center manager is not well prepared for these projects. This session will educate data center managers on the strategies for successfully completing colo contract renewals.
