Server collocation is a hosting solution in which a business rents space in a data center to house its physical servers. In this way, the company can benefit from the reliability and security of a professional data center without having to manage and maintain its own infrastructure.
The services of Colocation or Housing have the same meaning, the first definition today replaces the second in computer jargon.
Specifically, it involves transferring the servers and storage from the company to an equipped and specialized Data Center.

The advantages of colocation.
Companies can no longer do without a server to manage the information flow that increasingly engages the entire IT infrastructure. Unfortunately, the physical location of servers does not always meet business needs
- Unsuitable or non-redundant power supply
- Unstable or slow connectivity
- Expensive infrastructure
The pandemic, and the consequent remote access to corporate resources, has transformed the demand on corporate servers, with increasingly expensive connectivity resources.
A company needs to dedicate a dedicated space to servers and network equipment. They must comply with strict safety regulations. Digital and physical access must be secured. In addition, they need constant temperature cooling and must remain switched on in the event of a power failure. This implies an administrative and financial burden.
Moving company servers to an equipped Data Center allows you to take advantage of advantages that can hardly be replicated in the company if not at the expense of expensive costs for maintaining optimal conditions. Here are some:
In the Data Centers, a redundant fiber optic connection is ensured, the bandwidth of which can be sized according to customer needs. It therefore becomes indispensable for all those realities that do not reside in areas served by ultra-broadband.
Optimal power supply
Data Centers offer a stable power supply with dedicated power cabinets. Furthermore, there are UPS devices for immediate intervention in the event of a backup. Generating sets for power continuity even for long periods.
The fire is a less remote eventuality than you think. Unlike many company premises where the servers are hosted, fire prevention systems are installed in the data centers which allow the flames to be extinguished at the origin and any damage is very minimal.
The air conditioning system allows you to keep the equipment at a constant temperature and humidity which allows for a reduction in consumption and greater efficiency of the equipment hosted.
