Pay As Per Your Data Consumption Requirement To Aligned Data Centers


The data centres’ customers can now avail flexible plans that will provide faster service through Aligned Data Centres.

Dailycsr.com – 26 August 2015 – The service providers, government bodies and enterprises who require more control cost of data centre and a shorter period to launch themselves in the market, can now receive “consumption-based pricing” from Aligned Data Centers, as announced by the company.
Data centres mostly designed “to support static power requirements and fixed densities”. Predicting the future trend of IT is a hard job as the variables depend on the availability of space and power, yet the customers of data centres have to enter in “long-term contracts” which may not be useful for them before the term expires. Consequently, the customers do not possess the control power which they require for their business. It is this very reason for which companies are now looking for “more flexibility and speed” concerning their data centre usage scale. In fact, the C.E.O of Aligned Data Centers, JakobCarnemark stated that:
“The current approach to the data center needs to evolve to keep pace with changing IT needs. Today, the cloud makes it possible to access compute and storage on-demand, scale quickly, and only pay for what you use. We are delivering the same approach to the data center and are able to help our clients cut their colocation contract commitments by up to 75%.”
The Aligned Data Centers has developed a “consumption-based pricing” which doesn’t depend on the changing IT demands as the service is customized to provide “flexibility and speed”, whereby the respective companies can “adjust data center capacity as their business needs change”. In the Grtner Analyst, Bob Gill’s words, the need of the hour requires:
“...a more transparent and usage-based model is sorely needed.”
The Aligned Data Centers took its shape under the experienced hands of a team of industry veterans who came from the largest building, designing, production operating and engineering data centre organisations which boasts a wide range of innovative “Internet, telecommunications, and financial services”. The said team members had gathered twenty five years of experiences in these fields before venturing out to create Aligned Data Centers.

The operational director at Aligned Data Centers, Paul Fox, the former IT infrastructure’s executive director at Morgan Stanley announced:
“We don’t believe in a tradeoff between reliability and cost. We are delivering enterprise grade data centers in a cost model that customers have been demanding for years.”
The Plano data center of the company, situated at Texas, will be ready for its inauguration, which will empower Aligned Data Centers with “30 megawatt data” setup, whereby enabling the customers to organise “multiple power densities within the same row and scale from 1-25kW per rack”. Moreover, the said center, or the “multi-tenant data center” as addressed by BusinessWire will feature latest technology of “energy efficient infrastructure” which will bring down the usage of water in air-coolers by eighty five percent.

Likewise, the clients can rest assure that they are not only accessing a faster generation of data center but also dealing with “industry leading Power Usage Effectiveness”. Fox also adds:
“We are excited to offer our clients the flexibility and efficiency they need to run the next-generation of IT”.
Besides building the data centre at Texas, the company has simultaneously initiated a “65 megawatt data center” construction at Arizona’s Pheonix, which will stand over an area of “550,000 square foot”. The executive vice-president of the company Ron Kolber informs:
“We have seen a tremendous amount of interest in our pay-for-use approach and are in advanced discussions with a number of large clients at both locations”.
