The answer could be as “yes” as a “no”! This all goes back to the business and ROI modeling, business continuity planning at the strategic level, the impact analysis, cost, budget, time, resources, growth plans, trends, throughput and storage requirements, heat density, location, local rules and regulations, etc…all plays a role in defining the opportunity-cost, risks, value, and ultimately the decision.
