Colocation/ Data Center/ IaaS

Data center options customized for your business.

Data centers and IT infrastructure used to be complicated and cumbersome. You had to buy the equipment, rent the space where it was housed, manage cooling and redundant power, and manage everything about it. This isn’t the best way to do business. With today’s managed data centers, colocation, and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS), you no longer have to worry about limited power and connectivity options, inadequate security, and power or network outages.

Colocation allows you to put your existing hardware in purpose-built data centers. You are responsible for power consumption, rack space, and bandwidth.

IaaS provides a managed data center and IT storage solutions. IaaS allows you to rent space on secure servers in data centers. With IaaS, you get the same security and connectivity as colocation, without having to own any equipment. You can rent as much or as little space as you need on the servers. Within IaaS solutions, you can also have public or private service, and while both are secure, some company’s compliance requires that they have private IaaS.

For both colocation and IaaS, remote data centers provide redundant power, cooling, and connectivity so you don’t experience outages. Comprehensive security protects your data. Many providers also offer dual fiber paths and dual power sources so you never experience a network or power outage.

Regardless of which solution makes sense for you, we can help you get there.

Our RFP Alternative process helps you navigate all of these complex options in an efficient manner. Take our interactive quiz to see whether colocation, managed data centers, or IaaS works best for your business. Then, we can help you find the best and most cost-efficient provider without cumbersome RFPs.
