Why your business should be thinking about Colocation.
Colocation is a valuable option for your business that can help you to save space, bandwidth, and money. But what exactly is colocation and why should you be considering it for your business? Continue reading to find out more!
What is colocation?
Colocation is when a business or individual rents space, bandwidth, and server equipment from a data centre like Servacus.
A data centre is a space dedicated to housing computer systems such as servers. Our UK Colocation Service offers different server sizes depending on how much space and bandwidth you need. We offer Single Servers, Quarter Racks, Half Racks and Full Rack Servers. The name “colocation” is used due to the fact that numerous servers are operating from the same location – they are “co-located.” Colocation can help businesses to free up more space, increase their security and keep costs down. Carry on reading to find out how!
Increase your data security
Colocation can take care of a lot of the security responsibilities that come with running a business. UK Colocation providers like Servacus have extensive experience and knowledge on data security, so are able to provide robust and dedicated protection. In addition to this, the physical data centre locations will also be fully equipped with the latest security. For example, at the Servacus data centre, we have 24/7 internal and external security cameras, security gates, police response and unique access fobs to ensure the maximum levels of security and safety for your servers.
Give your business room to grow
As your business grows, so will your need for more servers and the space to store them. At the same time, you will likely require more office space for your growing workforce. Using a colocation service like Servacus takes care of this issue, as it frees up space in your office for your business to grow. Additionally, data centres are designed to provide the right conditions for the best possible server performance. For example, our data centre has temperature sensors and cooling systems in place to prevent servers overheating.
Keep costs down
Data centres are built to deliver the highest levels of efficiency, which helps to eliminate any unnecessary energy costs. At Servacus, we give you the basics for a baseline price. You then have the option to customise your order depending on the equipment, assistance, and specifications you require. This means no extra costs for equipment and services that you do not need or can provide yourself.
Resolve issues remotely
Colocation providers like Servacus will offer a “Remote Hands” service. This means that clients can request support from staff on-site without the need to travel to the data centre location. Issues can be identified and resolved quickly and expertly with no hassle. At Servacus, we also offer a free failed hardware replacement service as well as free server building to get you up and running.
At Servacus, we use 100% Green Energy to protect the environment and reduce our carbon footprint. When you use our UK Colocation Service, you are not only benefiting your company, but you are helping to save the planet!
