Control along with custom engineered infrastructure and operations can help organizations ensure application and workload performance, while also ensuring strategic assets remain under the ownership and control of the organization. A colocation service or colo or colospace as it’s called, will provide the organization the best of two worlds: 1) retention and control of strategic assets including data, coupled with 2) reducing capital and operating expenses related to capital intensive data center systems like redundant HVACs, Generators, Uninterruptible Power Supplies, Power Distribution Systems, Data Center Information Management Systems, and Security Systems all associated with creating and maintaining data center facilities.
As a quasi-shared utility a colocation facility is actually less expensive for many businesses than private data centers and a public cloud. Many studies have shown that many organizations underestimate the capital cost to build a data center and the ongoing cost of maintenance as well as the cost of connectivity. Organizations quickly become overwhelmed by the actual total cost of ownership (TCO) of their own data center and or public cloud.
A colo data center on the other hand is managed by the third party colocation provider who is dedicated to ensuring safe, secure, and reliable hardware storage for all its clients by continually investing in state-of-the-art infrastructure and technologies. As a company that rents out its space to multiple companies for securely housing their equipment, it makes economic sense for the provider to invest in and leverage advanced technologies to that effect.
