Sentinel Technologies was experiencing one of the most desirable problems a business can face: rapid growth. With its CloudSelect® service, Sentinel had proven itself to be a full-service integrator capable of customizing and scaling IT-as-a-Service solutions tailored to the ever-changing needs of its customers. They needed a data center solution that could keep up with the growing needs of their customers.
That’s when Sentinel turned to Digital Realty and its secure, flexible, and scalable colocation solutions. By employing Digital Realty’s colocation solutions, the company was able to better keep up with the growing demand for its services as well as produce significant returns and reduce their costs in the process. With the use of Digital Realty’s colocation services, Sentinel has found greater control over data center deployments, the ability to grow and scale those deployments on a global level, and more.
In order to quantify the impact that Digital Realty’s colocation services have made on Sentinel’s business, Digital Realty commissioned Forrester Consulting to conduct a Total Economic Impact™ (TEI) study. The study includes detailed information and hard numbers on how utilizing Digital Realty’s colocation services enabled Sentinel to reap 96% ROI on its investment, describes a number of additional unquantified benefits, and outlines the specific costs Sentinel experienced during the project.
