Data Center Leasing HardwareWhile it's true that IT is and will always be the spine of any modern day operation, the days of owning all of the IT products and services within a company are long gone. Technology continues to advance at a break-neck pace - spending huge amounts of money today on a deployment that will be woefully inadequate six months is something you simply cannot afford to do in such a competitive marketplace.

Yet at the same time, you can't afford to go without these mission-critical IT resources, either. Because of this, it's essential that you understand the four ore benefits of leasing data center hardware and the unique advantages that such a decision will bring to your organization for now and for all time.

The Latest Technology at All Times

Perhaps the most important benefit that comes with leasing your data center hardware is the fact that you get access to the latest that modern technology has to offer at a moment's notice. You don't have to wait for next year's budget to come in to make strategic purchasing decisions. For the same fixed monthly fee you've already been paying, you get exactly what you need, exactly when you need it, no exceptions.

Maximizing Your Budget

This segues into another one of the primary advantages of leasing data center hardware - it lets you maximize your budget in a host of different ways. For starters, it's a much easier sell to walk into your CEO's office and ask for $5,000 per month for the next three years for a lease versus the $10 million upfront investment they'll have to make to own the same hardware outright. If you were a CEO, which of those two offers would you be more receptive to?

Leasing data center hardware gives your business the ability to both stay within a budget and maximize the value of each dollar in one fell swoop. Because the cost is also so much less, you can free up essential cash reserves to be put towards other strategic business growth objectives.

Superior Scalability

In terms of growth, leasing data center hardware also gives you the ability to both have the strong IT backbone you need today and leave room for effortless scalability to address the challenges of tomorrow as they arise. Depending on the specific type of lease you choose, your business can scale up or scale down at will. You don't need to buy new servers or storage equipment as you add new employees (and worry about additional issues like depreciation). You simply have what you need, when you need it, period.

Care, Handling and More

Finally, leasing data center hardware also removes much of the burden of issues like maintenance from your business and puts it onto your third party provider. Maintenance costs and the actual effort involved are a part of what you're paying for on a monthly basis. If something breaks, someone will fix it. If an update becomes available, it will be installed. If equipment needs to be decommissioned, it will - you don't have to worry about a thing and you certainly don't have to pay the cost of bringing on one or more full-time employees to worry about it, either.
