Colocation or co-location is the practice of housing privately-owned servers and networking equipment in a third party data center. Instead of keeping servers in-house, in offices or at a private data center, companies can choose to ‘co-locate’ their equipment by renting space in a colocation center. Therefore, unlike other kinds of hosting, where customers can rent space on a server owned by a hosting provider, with colocation the customer already owns the server and rents the required physical space to house it within a data center.
A colocation provider will rent out space in a data center in which customers can install their equipment, but will also provide the power, bandwidth, IP address and cooling systems that the customer will require in order to successfully deploy their server. Space is rented out in terms of ‘racks’ and ‘cabinets’. We assure you with the tech and the plans we provide that you will be fully satisfied and all your requirements will be completed.
