    What are the advantages of colocation?

    The following are the benefits of colocation:

    1. Better connectivity. Colocation data centers have fully redundant network connections ensuring that customers business critical applications always run uninterrupted.

    2. Improved network security. Data centers have top-notch network security, including the latest firewalls / IDS systems to detect and prevent unauthorized access to their customers systems.

    3. Redundant power supply. Colocation data centers offer power redundancy through a combination of multiple power grids, diesel power generators, double battery backup systems and excellent maintenance practices.

    4. Bursting capability. Colocation centers provide customers with the flexibility to burst to higher bandwidth levels to accommodate their traffic demand without having to make repeat capital investments. Since data spikes are distributed over time across numerous users, bandwidth costs are significantly reduced.

    5. Room for growth. Colocation allows you to expand your infrastructure to fit the needs of your companys growth without having to take on capital expenditures. If youre company grows, your IT infrastructure can expand to support it quickly and with less investment.

    6. A step toward cloud migration. If your company is looking at cloud computing in the near future, colocation provides a smooth transition by allowing you to move your equipment to an offsite facility with increased capacity and performance to support business needs while ensuring a smooth cloud transition.

    Colocation offers organizations the ability to meet business demands at a lower cost, writes Rowland Kinch of Custodian Data Centres. Because of this, more and more companies are shifting their operations from in-house server rooms to colocation facilities.

    The biggest advantage of using server colocation service are that it ensures high availability while lowering capital cost that enterprises have to spend on acquiring features like bandwidth, rack space , cooling and firewalls.

    Scalability: Pay for as little or as much space as you need. Your provider should work with you to design the optimal amount of space and spec out the appropriate amount of power required to fit your specific needs.

    Flexibility: Set up a temporary test/dev environment or expand quickly to accommodate growth. Your contract should not be measured by the pound but instead judged on your ability to flex your environment. Too often, users get caught in long-term, static agreements that benefit only the colo provider and fail to recognize that things change over time.

    Reliability and Uptime: Premier colocation providers have the systems, processes, and staff in place to deliver 100% availability year after year and provide uptime SLAs (Service Level Agreements) to back it up. If your data center operator is taking power outages or experiencing internal systems failures, it may lead you to wonder why you choose them. You should demand your colo provider to deliver what you pay for – always up, always on.

    24/7/365 Monitoring and Support: Sleep well knowing that your systems are humming and that someone is watching over their home. If something does need attention, you should have skilled technicians available whenever you need help.

    Connectivity: More choices are always better. Carrier-neutral colocation providers give you access to a wide variety of public and private telecom services to meet the unique requirements of your business. What’s more, every data center should have diverse fiber entrances so you are not depending on only one egress and access point. Make sure also that your provider offers direct connections to the largest and most popular cloud providers. Most of today’s IT environments need to have access to both clouds and proprietary compute/storage.

    The biggest advantage of colocation is the cost for bandwidth. For example, a low cost limited bandwidth business grade DSL line generally costs around $150 to $200, but for the same price or less a single server can be placed in a colocation facility that provides higher bandwidth speeds and better redundancy for the network connections. These savings can be even greater if the only dedicated network access is a more expensive full or fractional T1 lines.

    Colocation facilities have better outage protection. During a long ice-storm last year, my office was without power for three days. While we have a backup generator, it wasn't powerful enough to keep the server running that entire time, so our Web sites were down during that outage. At a colocation provider, we are paying for power generators and backup power to protect against that type of situation.

    We own the server machinery. If we decide that the machine is too slow or doesn't have enough memory, we can simply upgrade the server. We don't have to wait for our provider to get around to upgrading it.

    We own the server software. I don't have to rely on my hosting provider to install the software or tools I want to use. I simply do it myself. If I decide to use ASP or ColdFusion or ASP, I just purchase and install the software.

    If we move, we can leave the server up and running the entire time. When we host our own domains we have to either pay for two lines for some time, to move the domains to the new location or deal with outages while the servers are moved to the new location.

    Colocation providers provide additional security for your machines. Your server is stored and maintained in a secured environment.

    Most colocation servers offer a service where they will manage and maintain your server for you for an extra cost. This is especially useful if you don't have IT team members or your office is located far from the provider.
