Colocation Calculator

Our Colocation Savings Calculator is a tool designed to provide clarity around the cost of managing data in-house versus trusting it to a third party provider. While it’s obvious that leasing space in a secure, high-performance environment will make data management easier, especially with industry compliance guarantees and uptime SLAs, it’s not always clear whether the switch will be cost-effective. Enter your requirements and see how much colocation can save you.
