An introduction to colocation

Colocation is the practice of storing your I.T. hardware and infrastructure (your servers and your devices) in a purpose-built data centre owned and managed by an external provider.

Is colocation for you?

Depending on what kind of company you are and what you offer, the choice you’re likely to be facing is whether to rent a server with a hosting company and let them manage it, or whether to colocate an existing infrastructure and hold on to responsibility for your IT operations. This eGuide will help you decide.

What are the benefits of colocation?

Data centres offer a range of benefits that organisations can’t generally realise internally. From high availability to security, scalability to performance – join us for a deep dive into the advantages you can gain from collocating your I.T. hardware.
