Position your IT team to understand exactly which providers are in your area.
Colocation is simply floor space, power, cooling, and bandwidth. Data Centres are redundant with many available carriers, dual fibre routing, dual power sources, meaning they offer protection against network or power failures. The amount of space rented is entirely up to your business — anywhere from a partial rack to an entire data centre.
Enterprise class service providers offer various compliances (SSAE 16, PCI, HIPAA, NIST) and more than 99.9% SLA’s for uptime. Colocation can be combined with other cloud solutions such as cloud computing, managed applications, and managed databases.
