If you’re concerned about regulations, intrusions, or other security and compliance issues, colocation may be what your business needs. We specialize in helping you choose the right regional and national providers.
What Do I Get Out of Colocation?
Why force yourself into the data center business and take yourself away from your actual business? Focus on your work, not the work of trying to run a data center.
- Reliability. It’s important to be able to access your data 24/7. Colocation providers specialize in server management and security, so you can rest assured that your data is in the right hands.
- Scalability. Colocation makes it easier to expand your data storage as your business grows — without interrupting the service or your access to it.
- Compliance. Whether dealing with HIPAA, Safe Harbor, or other regulations, we can help you choose the provider that fits your industry’s needs.
- Savings. Using a colocation provider can reduce your internal IT infrastructure and management costs.
When Should I Use Colocation?
Though the right migration time will depend on your unique circumstances, some call for colocation more than others.
- With multiple sites. Businesses with branch offices — especially those that span states and countries — can ensure data access for all employees.
- In disaster-prone areas. If your business operates in a flood plain or an area prone to earthquakes, power outages or similar issues, using a colocation provider in a secure region can improve data survivability.
- When moving to a new office. Many businesses these days are deciding to not build data centers in their new offices. Colocation helps ensure networks stay up and running during and after a move.
