A colocation center is a data center facility in which a business can rent space for servers and other computing hardware. Many colocation providers sell to a wide range of customers, ranging from large enterprises to small companies. Typically, they provide the building, cooling, power, bandwidth, and physical security while the customer provides servers and storage. Customers retain control over the design and usage of their equipment, but daily management of the data center and facility is overseen by the multi-tenant colocation provider. Safeguard your mission-critical applications and systems with colocation.
The Benefits of Colocation
Is Colocation Right for My Business?
- Are you looking for a secure environment to relocate your application infrastructure?
- What, if any, compliances does your organization need to adhere to?
- Do you need geographic redundancy for your applications? If so, what are acceptable regions to consider?
- How much space, power, and types of network connectivity will be required?
- What, if any, existing carriers do you need connectivity within a new facility?
Today’s organizations are finding it more convenient to move their critical assets into a more secure and resilient environment. This helps with uptime, performance, and disaster recovery.
