Colocation refers to the act of hosting your servers, storage, security systems, and other computing hardware in a data center location where it is managed and protected by IT professionals. This outsourcing service allows businesses to utilize top-notch hardware, software, and other equipment and services at a fraction of the cost.
How Does Colocation Helps Businesses?
Imagine having the ability to scale your computing hardware alongside the growth of your business without having the bulky overhead of buying new technology. There is no upkeep. No maintenance. Plus, you get the added benefit of hurricane hardened rackspace and around-the-clock security.
Welcome to the benefits of colocation. There is no downtime or wasted time when you outsource your hosting to a more advanced company. Instead of stretching you staff thin operating and maintaining your own servers, hardware, and software, you pass the responsibility so that your business can focus on doing whatever it does best.
Have a major project coming up that requires a little more IT oomph? The flexibility of colocation services also allows for the freedom to adjust your service according to your needs. It’s advantages like these that have drawn businesses both large and small to switch to our services.
