As many Canadian businesses continue to conduct remote or hybrid work operations, choosing the right type of data centre and backup recovery solution has never been more important to ensure employees remain agile, flexible and productive at work. 

Released this week, CDW Canada’s latest Market Trends Report, themed Maximize Your Data Centre, examines how Canadian organizations have been managing their data centres and reveals the top data centre trends and workplace transformations that have taken place over the last two years.

  • Over half (61%) of respondents reported their organization invested in data centre infrastructure over the last two years.  
  • Over one-third (35%) of people surveyed reported that data centre failures contributed to major outages for business-critical applications in the past two years. 
  • Data centre failure and public cloud services outages have been attributed to major business shortcomings that impacted bottom lines such as loss of productivity (82%), added costs (37%), security breaches (22%), loss of data (21%) and loss of reputation (21%).
