"A lot of the work on equipment has been done. You no longer come across many companies running weird or ancient equipment. Most now have quite power efficient IT architectures."

 

Alastair McAulay, PA IT infrastructure expert

PA’s Alastair McAulay, an IT infrastructure expert, is quoted in the Financial Times The Connected Business special report. Alastair comments on data centres and why an ever larger proportion of IT budgets is being spent on externally run services.

Alastair comments on the running cost of data centres. He says: "A lot of the work on equipment has been done. You no longer come across many companies running weird or ancient equipment. Most now have quite power efficient IT architectures."

The article goes on to look at the cost of power and cooling. Alastair warns that it might not be easy to put the latest power distribution or cooling into an ageing data centre: "That is a job for builders."
