Why you need flexibility in your IT services

11/15/2012 | Data centers |

One of the great advantages of using services from and taking advantage of our build your own dedicated server options is that you're not locked into a contract, meaning you can make changes to your solution whenever you need to. This could be hugely important to many firms as it can play a key role in improving the flexibility of an IT department. By ensuring you're getting tools tailored to your specific needs, you could end up saving a huge amount of money in the long term.

But surprisingly, scalability may not be a factor that is high on the list of priorities for many firms when it comes to improving their networks. In fact, a recent survey conducted in the UK by 1&1 Internet found a lack of flexibility is costing companies in the nation a huge amount every year.

It revealed the majority of small and medium-sized enterprises base their IT buying decisions on calculations of their peak demands, which may often be outdated and fail to take into account periods of slower activity. But despite the clear savings that enterprises stand to make, only 11% of respondents said they were confident their IT costs are in line with fluctuating business needs.

A third of companies pay a fixed total all year round - regardless of whether or not they actually need all their capacity - and just 17% of companies have investigated what options are available to them.

If you take the time to do this, you're likely to discover fairly quickly that there are several choices available. For example, it's easier than you think to upgrade a dedicated server from whenever you need to, while there is no risk that you'll lose data or have to renumber your IP addresses when you do so. This could therefore give you the peace of mind you need to focus on your core objectives, without worrying that you're overpaying for unnecessary technologies or being limited by inadequate solutions.
