|Data center colocation is a facility where you can rent space for your server and other computing resources at a third-party location instead of building an in-house data center. Your server will be able to utilize all the facilities such as power, cooling, bandwidth and security that is available at the data center.
Colocation gives you many benefits:
Saves you time and expenditure on maintaining the data center infrastructure which you could use for developing your business.
Even if you have an in-house data center, you will sooner or later, face issues of availability and business continuity as the traffic to your business keeps increasing.
It is difficult to scale your capacity and may result in disruption of services at least for some time in an in-house facility.
You get greater bandwidth at third-party data centers which mean faster page uploads.
The power backup and physical security are far more efficient in case there is an outage.
Business continuity is assured even if you are moving from your location or any mishap occurs at your location.
