    Question What does colocation mean?

    I never get this concept sorted out. As far as I'm knowledgeable, it's a unit rent in the data center?

    But how is it any different from dedicated hosting servers? Is colocation managed? Maybe just managed in the hardware level rather than the software level?

    Colocation is the act of placing multiple (sometimes related) entities within a single location.
    Moreover, colocation is often used in the data sourcing industry to mean off-site data storage, usually in a data center.
