Myth 3: Enterprises should have no more than two data centers per continent. 

Gartner recently came out with the recommendation that enterprises should consolidate their data centers to no more than two per continent. This is an excellent goal to strive for, but it is not always feasible or desirable for different types of organizations. There are situations, for example, where companies need their data to be near their customers or trading partners or major population centers. Regardless, it is good advice to have fewer rather than more data centers for any given organization.
