Improve connectivity, security – and lower costs – with Data Center Colocation

What is colocation?

Colocation refers to the practice of organizations renting physical space in a data center owned and/or operated by a third party to house their own servers and other critical computing hardware for data storage.

How secure is colocation?

By colocating in a data center, organizations can enjoy enhanced security measures at both the physical and network levels, surpassing what they can typically achieve cost-effectively in their own on-premises data centers.

Moreover, data center operators often partner with third-party providers to offer a range of network solutions that can effectively protect colocation tenants from cyberthreats.

24/7/365 supervision from on-site guards, including close circuit video monitoring.

Advanced flood and fire protection protocols to protect colocation tenant hardware from any physical threat.

Secure, controlled access via segregated areas – see how Equinix cages and cabinets enable you to custom configure equipment for the highest levels of security.

Antivirus and antispam solutions through to firewalls, anti-DDoS solutions, VPN connections and more.

Colocation vs. the cloud

IT hardware is commonly housed in data centers for both colocation and cloud services. However, in a colocation arrangement, the tenant retains ownership and full control over their servers, including knowledge of their exact location. On the other hand, in a cloud service model, the provider assumes responsibility for all the leased hardware, with the data storage customer often unaware of the specific location of the data center beyond the country level.
