The Top 5 Reasons Businesses Choose Colocation
With the rise of the Managed Hosting and cloud technologies, businesses have never had so many options when it comes to choosing the best IT solution to meet their needs. Despite this, Gartner reports that the global Colocation industry is looking to exceed US$63 billion by 2023 proving that Colocation is still one of the leading IT infrastructure choices made by businesses today. Particularly if they’ve grown out of their in-house server setup or want to own, maintain and manage their own hardware without hosting it in their offices.
Most companies that choose Colocation have the IT knowledge, skills and strategy to design and maintain their own environments, but often don’t have space or CAPEX to host this onsite. Colocation offers them the benefits of having control of their own servers, storage and network while mitigating the costs and performance issues related to an onsite setup.
Cost and Space Savings
The list of onsite hosting costs is long and includes everything from expert staff to run the setup to valuable office space needed to grow your business. Choosing Colocation means that you can deploy your equipment into a top-tier Data Centre, which offering redundancy and around-the-clock monitoring with the added bonus of freeing up physical office space.
Data Centres offer redundant power, cooling and systems that ensure that your business is always online and profitable. Instead of waiting for disaster to strike, Data Centres design, monitor and maintain support systems dedicated to ensuring that your equipment is running at top performance and is always reliable.
Scalability & Flexibility
Growing businesses are never predictable, and your data storage needs may change from month to month. Colocation offers the flexibility to scale your infrastructure up or down while only paying for the power and space as, and when you need it.
Colocation offers unmatched physical and data security. Data Centres are set up to prevent your equipment from physical threats like theft, water damage and fires that would result in significant losses in terms of cost and critical business information. Any reputable Data Centre will offer 24/7 onsite security as well as key card or biometric entry to ensure that no-one but you has access to your equipment. If the worst does happen, they will also have redundancies in place that will ensure that you can continue operations without impact.
Servers and electronic equipment perform best in a constantly cool and dust-free environment. Professional Data Centres offer the most effective air filtration and cooling systems available. This means consistently high performing equipment which wouldn’t be achievable in an office environment.
