Colocation Server Hosting Uk

Colocation is the term used to define a high quality data centre that is network-connected, secure and a resilient commercial facility for the housing of telecommunications and IT infrastructures. It involves the sub-letting of space in a safe and secure environment for Carrier, Internet Service Provider (ISP) or Application Service Provider (ASP) systems and equipment, as well as corporate IT systems, either as primary or business continuity site.  Such space may be sub-let in various ways like, quarter, half and full rack spaces; dedicated rooms or cages and larger areas meant normally for large corporate customers. Both carriers and carrier neutral organisations can provide colocation facilities.

With the world becoming increasingly computer-friendly, it is essential that your primary systems and back-up services are housed in the most suitable data centre facilities. Colocation with a reputed organisation gives you peace-of-mind that your IT systems are secure and operational. There are various key benefits of colocation. It offers neutral points of interconnection and a resilient operational environment that is the ideal place to house business critical equipment. Diverse network routing, ease of interconnection, secure site access and control, monitoring and maintenance and flexible space provisioning are some of the other benefits of colocation for carriers, ISP’s and ASP’s.
