Whatever your level of need, we can help.

The Value of Data Center Colocation

For a company that has one or two servers and Many companies, large and small, use data centers and colocation services for their IT equipment.  From web and mail servers to databases, application servers to backup equipment, it often makes sense for companies to place their servers in a colocation facility.

We have hundreds of clients using these services, some with partial racks of servers, while others use 100+ racks for their equipment.

Most offices are not properly equipped to host their own servers. From reliability to power demands, essential up-time to management services, there are many reasons to use colocation services.

Reliability in Data Centers

One of the key advantages of using a data center to colocate your servers is the high degree of reliability in the data center environment.  Redundant power, generators, UPS and air conditioning all help keep your systems up and running 24/7.  Many clients go years without any interruption of services.  It is rare for servers to be up for six months in an office environment without issues.  Offices are not designed as data centers and lack the resources needed to keep your systems up and running.

Data Centers Eliminate Power Concerns

While desktop and laptop computers use little power and generate little heat, servers provide a different set of challenges.  Buildings are not wired to provide the clean power needed on a consistent, uninterrupted basis.  Line conditioning, UPS units and generators ensure you stay up when others are down.  If you’ve been through a hurricane, for example, and seen power out for hours or days, you know the impact it has on your business.  Servers in these data centers stay up and running, powered by massive diesel generators when the power grid is down.

Essential Up Time – Achievable in Colocation Facilities with Managed Services

In today’s world, most companies are dependent upon computers.  From databases to mail servers, online applications, CRM and more, our businesses are all online to one degree or another.  When systems go down, businesses go down.

If you have had a server failure in your offices and waited 2 days for parts, you know the pain.  If you’ve had a server crash on a Friday and can’t get anyone in until Monday, you know the pain.  If you’ve had an outage and no one can figure out how to get the machines back online, you know the pain.

With managed services within the data centers, we eliminate the pain.  Technicians in the data centers are there 24/7, ready to address any technical issues on a moments notice.  Have a drive crash?  They can swap it out.  Power supply failure?  They can replace that quickly.  Complete server failure?  They can have a standby machine, and move your data over quickly.

Hopefully nothing goes wrong, but if it does, having experienced technicians on hand to address your problems is the best way to get back up and running fast.
