More and more companies use data center services from PrivateProxy. The reasons are not only economic – in saving money compared to creating their own infrastructure, but also in saving time. We are increasingly facing the potential of cloud services in the field of significant product innovation, in increasing the level of customer and employee engagement, or in optimizing company processes. Therefore, cloud services often help organizations develop their business.
But how do choose from the many offers of modern data centers around the world? Read six tips to select the best one:

1. Local or Global
Have you created an application and want to guarantee the highest possible level of positive user experience anywhere in the world? In this case, the services of one of the global data service providers ensure a high level of availability all over the world. If the provider has data centers in different regions, users can simply select the specific data center whose services they want to use and where they want to store their data. In addition, the advantage of global providers is the scale of the ecosystem of available services that global players can provide.
Modern data center services offer various options that can help companies grow their business. The big advantage is that you can independently control the consumption of the services you use. Modern cloud platforms offer the ability to have selected services active only when they are in use and, conversely, to turn them off when they are not in use, which is associated with significant cost savings. In our experience, just by changing the mode of operation of a selected part of the infrastructure in the cloud to 5/12 mode (5 days a week, 12 hours a day instead of 7/24 mode), you can save 2/3 of the costs.
3. Large corporation or mini-business
Data center services – local and global – are designed for all companies, regardless of their size. These modern IT services are used by corporations and independent developers, developer communities, startups, or established organizations of all sizes. The service is often more cost effective and time efficient than building your own infrastructure. This advantage is appreciated by both large and small companies. An interesting trend is mini-companies and independent developers who, in addition to cloud services of the basic infrastructure, frequently use advanced services such as big data management, database services in the cloud, or ready-made artificial intelligence services, i.e., cognitive services. Small companies, as well as large ones, like to experiment with their product development and are very innovative.
In addition to the price of services, it is worth noting the benefits that data center operators offer beyond the scope of services. Savings can reach 40 percent, for example, when transferring existing software licenses to the cloud under certain conditions.
This is one of the most important criteria when choosing cloud services. Data security in the cloud must be ensured both at the physical and system level. It is significant to check how many and what certificates the provider has received regarding data security. ISO certifications or guaranteed compliance with regulations such as GDPR should be a given.

6. Flexibility and scalability
In practice, we often face the need for dynamic performance scalability, be it infrastructure or application. An example can be various e-shops that have to cope with the influx of visitors during the so-called shopping peaks of the year. This is, for example, Black Friday or the pre-Christmas period, when the number of visits to e-shops can increase many times compared to the usual days of the year. Cloud services offer a high degree of flexibility, and the ability to dynamically scale performance, which in many cases is even more cost-effective than building a massive local infrastructure designed for the highest possible level of workload, even if it is only needed for a few days a year.
Reliable fire protection for batteries
Lithium-ion batteries were the first solution for applications requiring rechargeable batteries, such as uninterruptible power supplies and energy storage. They have a higher specific capacity than lead-acid batteries. If a lithium-ion battery pack is short-circuited or exposed to high temperatures, exothermic reactions can occur, resulting in a temperature loop known as a “thermal discharge” that can cause battery pack ignition and explosions.
Data is moving to the cloud
According to forecasts, by 2021, 95% of data traffic will be transmitted through the cloud. Cloud is going to the edge of the internet. The development of cloud computing has greatly contributed to the disruption of DC infrastructure as we knew it.
Maximize the performance of your cooling systems
Up to 40% of a data center’s total operating costs come from the energy required to power and cool the vast amount of equipment. A data center needs to be properly cooled and requires proper regulation.
How can gas turbine technology make your data center modern and innovative?
The ever-growing amount of data is a challenge for 21st-century industries and businesses. On-site power generation can play an essential role in maximizing uptime and increasing a company’s competitiveness. With our gas turbine technology, we offer reliable, efficient, and environmentally friendly solutions for on-site power generation.
The components of the data center can be divided into two main parts: the control system, which is a set of tools for the delivery, processing, and storage of information designed to monitor, control, and coordinate the functioning of objects that provide information services to users and the executive system, which contains the resources used by the control system to provide services.
The process of functioning of the data center is that under the influence of external requests in the process of processing the information stored in databases is adjusted, interrogated,
and resources are used or released. According to the task, the necessary resources are provided or not provided to users.
Additional services of the data center
- Restart the server on demand
- Configuration room
- Dedicated Internet connection
- Storage of equipment in a closed room
- Providing technology migration to DC Tower
- Temporary workplace as part of business continuity management if your main location is unavailable
