Sentinel sought colocation solutions to better serve their requirements today, and the demands of their future growth. With Digital Realty's colocation in place, they were able to reduce costs and achieve significant payback. So Digital Realty commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study to provide a framework for objectively evaluating colocation solutions.
To better understand the benefits, costs, and risks associated with this investment, Forrester interviewed a current Digital Realty customer, Robert Keblusek, Chief Technology Officer, and Ryan Santry, Vice President Enterprise Technologies, both of Sentinel Technologies, Inc. Sentinel has been using Digital Realty's agile Colocation solutions for three and a half years.
The study outlines how Sentinel Technologies:
- Achieved measurable quantified benefits that yielded a 96% 3-year ROI
- A walkthrough of unquantified benefits that contributed to the success of the solution
- An evaluation of the costs and payback of agile colocation
