Colocation or ‘colo’ as it’s commonly referred to, is essentially a service where space is leased out in data centers to house servers and other equipment. This method of hosting is typically utilized by businesses and corporations that have their own hardware, but do not wish to keep it within their own premises. Typically businesses can opt to rent space per unit, cabinet or rack, depending on their needs.

By opting for Colocation, businesses can ensure that their equipment is optimally stored in highly-secure, premium facilities. There are plenty of reasons to choose Colocation, so let’s take a look at some of the biggest advantages.

Benefits of Colocation


Perhaps the driving force behind many companies’ decision to opt for Colocation, is the long-term financial benefits. Keeping your IT infrastructure in-house involves a lot of different elements, which can really add up. From the initial investment of getting the fundamentals set up, to the ongoing energy and network costs required to maintain an optimal environment and steady temperature, and not to mention, the staffing costs of IT Specialists needed for management and upkeep.

Opting for Colocation means all of these variables are included in comprehensive packages, at a fraction of the cost and without any long-term commitments or major investment.


Storing your hardware in state-of-the-art, purpose-built and professionally maintained data centers can add significant value to your business. Opting for Colocation services ensures your servers are running to their highest performance with all of the necessary components in place to eliminate downtime and disruptions. Not only that, but Colocation also provides multiple connectivity and bandwidth options that guarantee your business will always meet demand with extensive network resources. 


Keeping data safe is the core of Colocation, with facilities following strict compliance regulations to ensure the highest standards of physical and cyber security. Colocation data centers have advanced resources and protocols in place to protect your hardware and data, like 24×7 onsite security and technicians, multi-level access authorization and pre-emptory disaster recovery solutions. Security is one of the most important benefits when choosing between Colocation and on-premise hosting of your servers and network equipment.


As your business grows, your IT needs change, and opting for Colocation provides an adaptable solution to meet your needs without consuming huge amounts of time and money. Colocation services offer total flexibility and allow you to expand hassle-free by utilizing the data center’s existing network and facilities.


Having a team of highly-trained experts at your fingertips is a major benefit of Colocation that can instill a huge amount of confidence and peace of mind knowing that your servers are being well-maintained. Whether you take a more hands-on approach in the maintenance of your equipment, or leave it solely in the hands of the data center professionals, having around-the-clock support and maintenance is essential for business continuity.
