There are a few factors you must consider before you choose a data center. These include:
1. Location: The data center must be easily accessible from your business location. You may want to upgrade or change configurations etc. The area should not be prone to any natural disasters and not be in an area where network connections are difficult. Of course, the host would consider these factors but you may crosscheck as a precautionary step.
2. Scalability: Your business expands and along with it your requirements will increase. The data center
you choose must be able to cater to your increasing needs of power, space, bandwidth etc.
3. Reliability: You must be provided with SLA commitments of at least 99.95% network uptime and a strong customer and technical support to answer your queries. DialWebHosting offers 24/7 technical support over phone, chat, and email.
4. Network connectivity: It is necessary to be able to interconnect with others like business partners, distributors, suppliers etc. for one-to-one peering. Check if the data center provider has a large network ecosystem and if the center is carrier-neutral?
