What are Colocation Servers?
When you put your own servers in our Network Operations Center (NOC) they are called Colocation Servers. You are renting rack-space in our server room and buying air-conditioning, power and Internet connectivity from us. The servers remains your property and management responsibility.
Why Should I Consider Colocation Servers?
Data Loss Prevention
Most companies choose to use a colocatcated server to minimize their risk of data loss. You then back-up your vital company data to a dedicated server located in our NOC. Having this data located off-site will substantially reduce the chance of data loss should a catastrophe happen at your main business location. It can also help your business get back on its feet quicker after such a catastrophe.
By placing cheap dedicated servers in our Network Operations Center you can provide Internet services such as web sites; FTP and Cloud storage; and mail servers, without having to consume your offices resources such as Internet bandwidth, electricity and air conditioning.
