The staffing challenge in data center market becomes a quality opportunity

The data center industry is growing rapidly. The amount of vacancies for specialized data center personnel in the area of Amsterdam for example is raising. A shortage of specialized/skilled data center personnel is expected, a staffing challenge. How can the data center market respond? Will it result in decreasing quality of data center services? We believe in the opportunity of improving!

It is expected that the data center industry will rapidly grow and will result in a shortage of skilled IT personnel. Almost all data centers have plans to expand and cloud providers are considering or starting to operate their own data center. So, the amount of companies and the size of the companies are expanding, means that specialists are needed to design, maintain and operate these high-tech buildings and services. The employees that are the hardest to find are ones with a very broad knowledge of power, cooling and construction knowledge. Due to the shortage in the skilled employees, the more expensive the employees will be.

Instead of trying to do everything by yourself, you can use the experts. The companies that build technical infrastructures and buildings are the once that (mostly) have in-depth knowledge within their field of expertise. Instead of engineering your data center with some multi-talent employees and asking the experts to fill-in the blanks, the experts can design and a project manager within the field can connect them. By using your partners that have product specialists and in-depth knowledge of the possible techniques and how to benefit most from their products, the lack of skilled people is forcing the use of partners. It can result in using new products with new techniques for new solutions, instead of using new products with new possibilities for the known solutions.

Datacenter.com is focusing on using the strength of partners. Make use of the experts, it is nearly impossible for each and every data center to have a specialist on board for every product / solution that is part of their services. Using the specialists when you need them and where you need them. A challenge in staffing, but an opportunity to innovation and quality!

    A Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS) attack is a malicious attempt to disrupt the traffic of a targeted server, service or network by overwhelming it with a flood of internet traffic.
