2024 is here. And, whether economics, supply chain, or advances in technology are driving it, companies are reevaluating their IT infrastructure strategies. For many small and large enterprises, transitioning to colocation services are expected to increase in the coming years, delivering significant benefits over hosting onsite including enhanced resilience, relentless security and flexibility to innovate.

A report by Future Market Insights projects the US market size for colocation to grow from $69.7 billion to $279.1 billion in the next 10 years. With escalating demand for robust colocation services, identifying the right provider is essential. With a customer NPS score of 9.4, our dependable, customizable colocation services ensure you’re future-ready with a superior customer experience far beyond 2024.

Defining Colocation (Colo) Services

Colocation services involve housing your IT equipment, including services, switches, routers etc. in a leased third-party hosting facility within a dedicated offsite data center location rather than owning and maintaining a datacenter on-premises.

Colocation services frees up your team and budget. Space, power, cooling, monitoring, and maintenance are handled by expert providers in purpose built facilities, enhancing maximum uptime and allowing your technical talent to concentrate on your core business and enabling applications and workloads that drive revenue.

Advancing Business Goals with Colocation Data Centers

Thanks to purpose-built data centers, colocation services deliver advantages over handling complicated infrastructure internally for most companies. Benefits of utilizing third-party colocation data centers includes:

  • Bolstering resilience and minimizing disruptions from power loss, network failures or natural disasters via redundant infrastructure
  • Physical security protections through restricted facility access, surveillance systems, and onsite security personnel
  • Cybersecurity resources and talent to detect and deter external threats to vital IT systems
  • Improving staff productivity by offloading infrastructure burdens enabling focusing on forward business initiatives
  • Facilitating convenient system maintenance with remote hands colocation support
  • Financial savings not having to invest capital building and operating private data centers

Colocation Services Pricing Offers Key Advantages

Colocation services offer a level of cost-effectiveness as opposed to self-housing, as they allow businesses to utilize state-of-the-art facilities without the need for large upfront investments in building and maintaining their own data centers. This cost efficiency is a key factor that your organization should consider when opting for colocation data center services.

In addition, organizations that take advantage of colocation centers avoid the constant budgetary demands in increasing technological advances. New server and storage technology requires consistently more power and air-conditioning to operate, and the costs of continuously refurbishing to upgrade IT environments can be cost-prohibitive.

Organizations that seek to deploy hybrid cloud/physical solutions also find colocation services offer a cost effective route to deployment and path to the cloud.
