A colocation data center is a physical facility that offers space with the proper power, cooling and security to host businesses’ computing hardware and servers. This capacity includes anything from cabinets to cages or private suites.
Often, colocation providers lease space to various tenants looking for colocation services – including network providers, cloud providers, and enterprises. These tenants can then interconnect to one another within the colocation data center and do business together. This allows businesses to centralize their IT operations and create an efficient architecture that can reduce costs.
Colocation provides a high-performance environment for your critical IT infrastructure. Customers can benefit from a 100% uptime SLA and focus on core business rather than managing a data center. Additionally, colocation provides dedicated, private connection options to hundreds of network, cloud and IT service providers to help streamline your architecture.
In the always-on world we inhabit, organizations often need to make sure their services are available 24/7 – guaranteed. With robust infrastructure and built-in redundancies across generators; CoreSite's tenured operation team ensures that your data is always up and running when you and your customers need it.
Security and regulatory requirements are a major concern for most organizations. CoreSite data center colocation provides comprehensive measures to meet these requirements, such as 24x7x365 in-house security officers, perimeter fencing, mantrap entries, IP-DVR cameras, biometrics and keycard scanners.
Colocation provides several opportunities to reduce costs. Power and networking costs, dedicated operational and security staff, and cooling efforts all must be considered beyond the expense of basic equipment. Clear up internal resources by relying on CoreSite to maintain the data center space.
