Colocation Data Centers & Facilities Provided By Them
Colocation data centers offer physical space on lease to customers for housing their servers and other computing devices. You install your servers and other telecommunication equipment in the physical space leased from the data center. The leased space is typically comprised of either full cabinets or portions of a cabinet measured in Rack Units. Much larger spaces, like a caged section of a room or complete private rooms or suites, are also available depending on your requirements.
All leased space is supported by:
1. Precision-controlled air-conditioning systems with incorporated redundancy.
2. 24×7 power back-up systems for all equipment to ensure zero downtime or minimal disruption in operations due to power failure.
3. High-capacity, reliable power generators.
4. State-of-the-art fire detection and suppression systems to guard against potential losses due to fire.
5. Sophisticated onsite security through surveillance cameras and advanced biometric systems to prevent unauthorized entry.
6. Networking equipment including state-of-the-art, fully redundant high-end switches and routers, BGP4 routing for optimal path selection and full redundancy, etc.
Most colocation centers also offer SLAs to support a host of computer and networking services like server reboots, software updates, hardware repairs, disaster recovery, etc.
