Thread: Reasons for colocation
02-23-2003, 04:16 PM #1freebsdGuest
The huge growth in the managed server market could mean the end of colocation hosting.
What should a businesses consider before taking the plunge into colocation?

1. The server is yours,meaning you have full control over the server.
2. Monthly charges are much lower.
3. You can do add-ons without paying for the unnecessary setup fee.

Also, if you don't like where your server is located (downtime), just take the server to a better datacenter.
Usually managed servers cost WAY more then just co-locating it.

On a side note, before moving a server to another datacenter, it may be wise to have another server up and running at that one to which you can transfer accounts to, or some similar backup plan.
This way, your accounts won't be completely inaccessible during the server move while they unrack it, ship it, you recieve it, then reship it, then they rack it, etc.

Colocation is only one of a few alternatives for organizations that need to outsource their figuring needs. With colocation, you give the supplies, and your colocation supplier has your gear in their server farm and gives the force, ping, pipe and rack.
