Myth 6: Data centers are mainly data stores.

In an increasingly digitized world, data is also one of a company’s most critical strategic assets. Data centers are not purely a place to store static data, they are actually the nexus for today’s digital economy. Data centers are laboratories where data is analyzed, resulting in new discoveries; they’re financial exchanges where trading partners share data and make split-second transactions; they are foundries for innovative new services that make our lives better and easier; they are communications centers that enable us to keep in touch with friends, loved ones, colleagues and clients anywhere and anytime.

As one of the world’s largest data center providers, Digital Realty is debunking six of the most common myths to help set the record straight.
