Co-location (colo) is an equipment (mainly server) housing service provided by a third party data center to businesses needing a suitable environment to operate their necessary equipment from. The data center provides all the fundamental services as a turnkey solution:
Secure & clean environment
Domestic & international bandwidth
Network & server monitoring
There are many reasons why a business will choose to use a co-location service over that of building its own data center. Mainly to avoid high costs, additional staff & high maintenance which can be a serious drain on both resources & finances of a growing business.
Businesses might also choose to collocate servers or other equipment, even if they have an operational data center themselves. This is typically as a redundancy precaution in case of any serious issues effecting their own site.
