Determining where to establish your company’s infrastructure and point of connection is a critical decision for any business. Any business that wants to remain competitive must rely on strong IT support leaving as little as possible up to chance. If you are planning your IT infrastructure, you may be tempted to think that maintaining an in-house IT department for all technical support and services is the way to go. An in-house IT team might know the ins and outs of your business. But outsourced IT support teams know business technology like no other and can apply their expertise right away.
Datacenters will have maintain multiple generators in the event of power outages and various other solutions in place to back up data to guarantee that services are not interrupted no matter the circumstance. The support staff continuously tests and monitors these systems, investing the time and energy necessary to ensure 100% uptime for business operations. Supporting the customer needs is the number one priority of a data center facility. Overseeing all these measures internally could prove to be time-consuming for businesses and presents the risk of stalling business operations if not properly executed.
Perhaps the most valuable benefit of colocation is the robust, state-of-the-art IT infrastructure in place to store customer information. Colocation allows companies to bypass initial infrastructure investment that comes with building their own facilities. A colocation solution provides businesses with environmental benefits that may not otherwise be accessible (or affordable) if managing in-house. Datacenters provide the best equipment for storing information, they also deploy the best support systems for providing power, bandwidth, cooling, and redundancy within a single plan.
Datacenters will do everything in their power to ensure that their customers’ business operations are maintained. With 24/7 onsite support availability on and off site, you can rest assured that your systems are being maintained by IT experts who will serve as an extension of your team. 24/7 on site support is especially convenient for situations that require immediate attention. When an issue arises at an unexpected moment, datacenter staff is prepared to handle them at all times. 24/7 support offers a peace of mind, knowing that the data center provider has their back.
Colocation enables organizations to benefit from faster networking and resilient connectivity at a low price. Colocation providers specialize in data center and network services, so businesses do not have to. Your IT team can focus on your core business.
