Chimera Technologies. A Comprehensive Business Solutions Agency

A colocation (colo) is a data centre facility that allows a business to rent space for servers and other computing hardware. Usually with colocation you receive access to the building, cooling, power, bandwidth and physical security, while the client would typically provide servers and storage.

Why do you need colocation?

There are several reasons why a business may choose to use colocation as opposed to running their own data centre:

Capital cost

It is extremely expensive to own and run a data centre due to the ongoing maintenance and security requirements associated with managing such a facility.

Bespoke requirements

Rapidly growing businesses may find themselves with insufficient bandwidth or unable to manage the increased responsibility of protecting sensitive data if attempting to run their own data centre.

Fast, low-latency connectivity

Dedicated colocation facilities ensure that businesses have access to services that work quickly and effectively and will continue to operate through any crisis or disaster.

Save money and space

Moving servers and networks to colocation facilities allow businesses and organisations to save money and space within their own premises.

Disaster recovery

Taking advantage of a disaster recovery (DR) service provides extra security for your business should the worst happen.
