What is Colocation?
Colocation is a highly secure data center building where equipment, servers, space, and bandwidth are available for organizations to rent. Colocation is a data center facility that businesses buy or rent space in to host their IT servers to experience higher security and guaranteed uptime. The colocation provider is responsible for the maintenance and security of the facility. They ensure the power and cooling is redundant, so outages are not experienced.
