What is a CoLocation Data Centre?

A CoLocation data centre is a facility in which companies can house their server infrastructure and other computing hardware. The data centre will provide the cooling, bandwidth, power and security. Companies mitigate a certain level of risk by allowing a certified data centre to host their servers as opposed to hosting them in their own, much less secure premises. Companies rely on the secure storage of its online data in order to operate, and serious issues can develop in the event that this security is breached or if the server goes down.

A breach or a period of downtime can cause a company reputational damage. Not only is there a risk of loss or public exposure of the private data of your customers, there is also the risk of losing internal company data which is vital for your business’s day-to-day operations. Downtime can also serve as a source of inconvenience and frustration to both a company and its customers so it is imperative to ensure that your business’s computer networks are guarded against issues with the power supply, security and other key factors that can cause interruptions to the service.

As a company grows, it is advisable to start looking for CoLocation providers who can deliver a solution that is safe and provides the secure environment your company needs to protect its data and the data of its customers, and to ensure its servers are always running smoothly.

What to look for in a CoLocation Provider?

Research your CoLocation providers carefully to ensure you select a provider that offers superior CoLocation services. The key criteria you should be searching for include:

A fully redundant infrastructure: in terms of CoLocation services, redundancy refers essentially to the extent to which duplicate components and functions exist to stand in for the usual systems should they fail for whatever reason.

Comprehensive security measures: some of the most important security measures you should always make sure your chosen facility has in place include 24/7 monitoring, motion detectors, a policy of ensuring all visitors are escorted and remain under supervision, and highly secure doorways in all locations with biometric checks for critical areas.

Environmental control: An environment comprising of numerous computing components that are operating 24/7 will become extremely hot. This can cause equipment to overheat resulting in shutdowns and pose a significant fire risk. As a result, sophisticated air-conditioning, fire-suppression and other environmental control systems are essential components of a Tier IV data centre.

This is not an exhaustive list or requirements (and whilst each CoLocation data centre will have slightly different solutions to the problems associated with storing so many systems in one place), by ensuring your chosen data centre meets certain criteria, you give your company the best chance of finding a suitable data centre that can be relied upon to deliver the level of service that your company will require.
