What is Colocation

Colocation is a hosting service offered by data centers and web hosting companies to let you place your computer servers and other IT hardware in a secure, redundantly powered high-speed Internet-connected facility. There are many benefits that colocation service offers compared to hosting your own IT infrastructure on-site, such as higher up-time, increased network performance, lower cost of operation, and superior capacity expandability. In addition to space and power, many colocation providers offer a variety of managed services and hybrid cloud/colocation options.

Room for Growth

Colocation allows you to expand your infrastructure to fit the needs of your business growth without having to take on capital expenditures. If your business grows, your IT infrastructure can expand to support it quickly and with less investment. In a typical in-house IT environment, if you suddenly needed to increase your bandwidth. you could wait weeks or months from your cable or local Internet company. When your IT infrastructure is stored in a colocation facility, you can turn up massive amounts of bandwidth within minutes or hours; bandwidth capacity that can be more than 10,000x that of a typical office cable Internet connection is readily available inside any colocation facility.

Maximized Uptime

The cost and consequences of downtime are the reason why uptime is so essential. When a business is experiencing downtime, they aren’t able to provide service to their customers

Colocation data centers provide multiple back-ups and disaster recovery options to keep services running during power outages and other unexpected events. Leveraging colocation services, your IT infrastructure is housed in our redundantly high-speed Internet-connected facility, with continuous power provided by industrial UPS battery systems and on-site diesel generators for emergency backups. Our 100% uptime Service Level Agreement supports our commitment to delivering reliable colocation services to our customers.

Cost Savings

The cost of managing an in-house data center and IT infrastructure with the same up-time capabilities of the enterprise-grade power, Internet, and cooling systems, can be higher than the cost of renting space at a colocation data center. Colocation service plans are a comprehensive package, providing built-in benefits such as support, security, redundancy, and connectivity at either a bundled or reduced cost compared to on-site hosting.

Security and Compliance

Colocation service leverages the physical security of the data center you place your equipment in. With ColoHouse colocation you get the peace of mind knowing that the facility is secured with video surveillance, 24 x 7 on-site guards as well as biometric data center access, combination cabinet access, and cage access by key.
