What is Colocation Hosting ?

Colocation hosting refers to the practice of renting space, power, and network connectivity within a managed data centre facility. With colocation, businesses retain ownership and control over their physical servers and equipment, and the colocation provider manages the infrastructure, such as power, cooling and security. Colocation hosting can bring many benefits to business that require high levels of uptime, security and connectivity for their IT infrastructure and applications

Advantages of Colocation vs Public Cloud

The main advantage of colocation hosting over public cloud hosting is the cost saving. Public cloud-based solutions allow you to provision servers quickly and at scale for a relatively low cost. However, as your data and user base grow, the costs of cloud servers can quickly escalate.  

If you are using AI based applications, where real time decision making can be localised, such as the technology used within smart cities, then regional edge facilities can also be a major advantage in terms of reduced latency.  

Colocation hosting provides businesses with physical control over their infrastructure within a secure data centre facility. Private, public, and hybrid cloud hosting, on the other hand, offer varying degrees of scalability, flexibility, and cost-efficiency by leveraging shared resources and virtualized environments. Organizations should carefully consider their specific needs, security requirements, and cost constraints to determine the most suitable hosting solution. 

By understanding the differences between colocation and various types of cloud hosting, businesses can make informed decisions and align their hosting strategy with their overall IT objectives. 

With colocation, businesses have complete control over their hardware, software and configurations. This level of control can be important for businesses with specific security, regulatory, or performance requirements.​

Colocation hosting typically offers predictable, monthly costs for space, power, and bandwidth, making it easier for businesses to budget for their IT infrastructure.​

Colocation allows businesses to customise their hardware and network configurations to meet specific performance requirements, which can be beneficial for applications with high computational demands.

Security and Compliance – Colocation facilities often provide high levels of physical security and can help businesses meet compliance requirements by offering features such s biometric access controls and video surveillance.

Colocation data centers typically offer high-speed, redundant connectivity options, allowing businesses to easily connect to a variety of network and internet service providers.
