WHAT IS COLOCATION
Colocation is a hosting service offered by major datacenters and web hosting companies to let you place your computer servers and other IT hardware in a secure, redundantly powered, high speed Internet-connected facility. There are many benefits that colocation service offers compared to hosting your own IT infrastrcuture on-site, such as higher up-time, increased network performance, lower cost of operation, and superior capacity expandability.
In a typical office IT environment, if you suddenly needed to increase your bandwidth to keep up with more mobile sales staff access, or increased Internet access to your business application, you could wait weeks or months from your cable or local Internet company. When your IT infrastructure is located in a colocation facility, you can turn up massive amounts of bandwidth within minutes or hours; bandwidth capacity that can be more than 10,000x that of a typical office cable Internet connection is readily available inside any colocation facility.
In a world dictated by 24x7 always-available service, being down for minutes or an hour can spell disaster. Imagine having your entire organizations IT infrastructure down for a day or a week, while the power or cable lines to your building are disrupted? Imagine power-loss during a typical summer storm disrupting mobile work forces and remote sales opportunities from accessing your servers? By leveraging colocation services, your IT infrastructre is housed in our redundantly high-speed Internet-connected facility, with continous power provided by industrial UPS battery systems and on-site diesel generators for emergency backups.
You could spent hundreds of thousands of dollars, if not millions, to have the same up-time capabilities of the enterprise grade power, Internet and cooling systems in your own office location. The fiber optic lines, connecting to major hubs on the Internet at speeds in excess of 10,000x that of a typical office cable internet connection can cost over $50,000 a month - for just a single connection point. Add in redundancy to your office, and you could be spending millions a year for a high speed redundant Internet pipe at the same speeds you have access to for $100's per month with a Colocation service.
MOBILITY AND UNIVERSAL ACCESSIBILITY
The face of business has changed into an on-demand environment. Mobile workers need access now, clients need access now, and your sales staff need access now. To add to the ever-increasing operational tempo of the modern business's communications needs, you now have an increasing mobile factor where multiple locations, road warriors, and clients can span the globe all needing high speed access to your IT infrastrcuture. With colocation services, you get massive high speed access at speeds 10,000x that of a typical office cable Internet connection -- ideal for the mobile and growing demands placed on the IT infrastructure of businesses today.
