What is Co-Location?
Co-location is the rental of a data center facility in which your business can locate servers and other computing hardware vital to your operations.
The service provider will facilitate access to the storage building, cooling, power, bandwidth and physical security while the customer provides servers, storage and other hardware necessary for their enterprise functions.
Space is often leased by the rack, cabinet, cage or room. Many co-location facilities now offer managed services which augment customer business strategies, initiatives and day-to-day operational necessities.
