Immersion cooling and UPC Eco Mode are just two perfect examples of efforts being made towards energy efficiency within new data centers. Servers that run cool require less power. Backup systems that prevent energy loss from occurring also conserve power. Utility costs are a huge factor for any existing facility.

Colocation is the physical option of placing your IT assets or infrastructure into a service provider’s data center. Colocation providers lease rack-space for servers and give clients many different options in regards to managing IT assets. Colocation is also a cost effective alternative to building an entire facility to maintain and managed company data. Companies may also expand while conserving company resources and capital. No need to worry about hiring an entire office of IT personnel. The Benefits of Colocation Companies who opt to “collocate” IT infrastructure can expect an annual ROI on their investment. Colocation companies employ an entire staff dedicated to maintaining, securing and improving the performance of which your confidential data is managed.
