What is Colocation and how does it work?

Colocation, often referred to as “colo,” involves housing your critical IT infrastructure and servers in a dedicated data centre facility. This approach ensures that your equipment resides in a controlled environment, fortified with advanced security measures and redundant systems, while you maintain full control over your hardware and applications remotely. 

There can be multiple users under the same machinal and electrical systems in a DC facility. Through colocation, a data centre provider can offer significant economies of scale for users that aren’t large enough to bring down the cost per critical KW that a scaled data centre can provide.

Advantages of Colocation for your Business

Optimised Space Utilisation

Colocation empowers businesses to downsize their office spaces, freeing up valuable real estate. With your servers housed in a secure data centre, you can channel resources into core business functions rather than infrastructure management. 

Mitigated On-Premise Risks

Colocation provides a superior alternative to managing data on-premise. By housing your equipment in a purpose-built data centre, you eliminate the risks and challenges associated with maintaining data within your premises, including security breaches, power outages, and environmental vulnerabilities. 


Managing data on-premise comes with substantial costs, including equipment maintenance, cooling, power, and security expenses. Colocation offers a more economical solution, leveraging shared infrastructure and operational efficiencies, resulting in cost savings.
