What Is Colocation Hosting?

Colocation hosting involves you renting space in a data center to store you servers and other hardware. All of the servers are owned by you – you are only renting the space where they are located.

How Colocation Hosting Works

1. You will purchase your own physical server(s) to store at your chosen colocation hosting facility.

2. You will bring or send your equipment to your selected data facility. You remain the owner of your equipment and you control all of the hardware and software settings.

3. You will keep in communication with your colocation host if you want to increase features, such as your bandwidth and rackspace as your business needs change.

Benefits of Using Colocation for Storing Your Data

Colocation hosting is a great choice, as it will provide you with the following incredible benefits:

Improved Internet Bandwidth and Speeds

A data center that offers colocation hosting is able to provide you with larger bandwidths and faster internet speeds. You can enjoy these larger bandwidths at a lower cost than if you were setting up your own IT department and purchasing bandwidth for your business alone.

A Climate Controlled Environment for Your Servers

Data centers are equipped with state-of-the-art HVAC equipment that can keep your servers at the optimal operating temperatures. Computer equipment generates an incredible amount of heat and requires a special climate controlled environment. Colocation hosting lets you take advantage of these conditions at a fraction of the cost of purchasing your own.

Reliable Power

Colocation hosting will also provide you with reliable power. If the power goes out, your data center will immediately switch to their redundant systems. You will probably not even notice when this happens. Colocation will ensure that your business is always up and running and online.
