Colocation enables you to host all of your IT systems, servers and rack equipment off site in a secure environment. Hosting your own systems on-site can become increasingly prohibitive for businesses as physical space, power and connectivity costs spiral. It then begins to make more sense to hand over all your hosting to an external organisation for one agreed monthly fee.
Alternatively, you may wish to still host your systems on-site, but are thinking of Disaster Recover (DR) scenarios, should your comms room power or connectivity fail. It then becomes sensible to consider locating some kit completely off-site that can continue to run your business in the event of any disaster. Colocating a single U server can cost less than a hundred pounds per month to guarantee your company presence remains live, regardless of what happens elsewhere.
