Benefits of Colocation Hosting

Colocation is the practice of housing your servers and devices in a professional datacenter in order to access the benefits of greater bandwidth, lower latency, technical services and systems, constant security, advanced infrastructure, economies of scale, and a bunch of other benefits.

Here are 8 compelling reasons to consider colocation hosting:

1. Power Redundancy

Backups. Essential to any business, but costly to own. Colocation hosting reduces the cost of expensive redundant servers to businesses.

2. On-site Specialists and Troubleshooting

When something goes wrong,you can't access your data and when your IT guy is on a vacation, what do you do? Colocation hosting ensures that there are always technical support specialists ready (one phone call away) at all times to get you back up and running.

3. Network reliability

Demands for constant connection drives businesses with the need on network reliability to ensure that their business continuity online is maintained. Datacenters provide 100% uptime, but with heavy costs involved, and colocation makes network reliability more affordable. 

4. Security and Data Protection. 

Security is always an issue, and with increasing security threats companies are more concerned with maintaining a secure environment. Colocation facilities generally offer key card entry, cabinet locks and surveillance to better manage security.

5. Bandwidth

Colocation hosting provides Internet Service Provider (ISP) level Internet access that allows smooth network operations over a strong bandwidth, that fulfills extensive requirements, and complex applications.

6. Cost Savings

Any of the above requires a good amount of investments. Why build something with such heavy initial investments when all you need to do is pay a simple 'utility bill' monthly to enjoy all of the benefits above with Colocation Hosting.

7. Location benefits

Infrastructure and hardware is vulnerable to dust, electricity damage, overheating, and a host of other risks. Facilities require maintenance to avoid critical issues like this. Colocation hosting mitigates such risks and provides you with a peace of mind.

8. Scalability
