What is colocation?
Colocation is the practice of renting out space to store servers and hardware in a third party data center, off premise of your company. Most companies don’t have the capacity or capital to store servers in an environment that provides the network, heating, cooling, or power redundancy required. While businesses still maintain the upkeep of their servers, moving some or all servers offsite to a secure colocation facility significantly reduces operating costs and ensures data is in a secure and compliant environment.
