    What is colocation?

    Colocation defined

    Colocation means renting as much space and data center resource as your business needs for its IT infrastructure — renting by the rack, cage, server room or even larger. 

    There may be instances when it is preferable to have a wholly owned, state-of-the-art, secure data center to grow your own business’s IT capabilities in isolation. However, ensuring your infrastructure is always on, up to date, secure, sufficiently powered, and cooled — as well as providing the network requirements your business demands — can often add up to a sizeable cost. 

    Colocation isn’t just leasing servers themselves. It also allows you to place your servers in a colocation data center designed to provide the space and resource support you need to keep your business moving. This way you maintain responsibility for your hardware setup and configurations while keeping capital outlay down by allowing your colocation data center to handle cooling, power and network access. Sungard AS colocation services mean flexibility, so your business can be cost-effective in delivering a resilient infrastructure without expensive overheads.

    The benefits of colocation

    Unless you are a colocation provider, running a data center is not a key component to your success. As a cost center, incorporating new technologies and business continuity is a necessary evil required to deliver your core services or applications. Colocation can reduce the overall total cost of ownership (TCO) for an environment through a provider's scale where services are developed to be consumed in increments aligned to a business strategy.

    With colocation, you turn capital expenses into operating expenses. By renting the space in a third-party data center, you hand off the building, infrastructure and maintenance to a provider for a predictable – and lower – monthly cost. Best of all, you can take advantage of economies of scale to lower your costs while delivering more value.

    With a colocation provider, you limit your upfront investment by purchasing and implementing what best suits your current business requirements with the ability to quickly expand as those requirements change and evolve. Service levels can be customized to meet your product application needs. Uptime requirements as well as business continuity requirements are backed by provider service contracts.

    Making colocation a part of your hybrid strategy can greatly improve your disaster recovery capabilities. Whether it is leveraging a geographically diverse colocation facility or incorporating advanced recovery solutions, working with an experienced provider can ensure you get the solutions to properly protect your business critical applications, while offering scalability to reduce TCO.
