    There are many companies that cant pay attention to storing data.. That is why many companies needs another company that expertise in storing data to do it for them. That is what we called colocation hosting.

    Colocation is a hosting option for small businesses who want the features of a large IT department without the costs. Colocation allows you to place your server machine in someone else's rack and share their bandwidth as your own. Colocating the server gives you the greatest flexibility. You get to choose the hardware configuration of the server and the software that goes on it.

    Colocation hosting is an effective way to achieve business continuity, scalability, and minimal network latency, at a fraction of the cost it takes to accomplish the same in a private datacenter, while maintaining total control over the physical server, the operating system and the applications.

    Colocation hosting wherein multiple customers locate network, server and storage gear and interconnects to a volley of telecommunications and various other network service provider thus minimizes the complexity and cost. Have a dedicated hosting right away and enjoy complete freedom.

    Collocation is moving or placing things together, sometimes implying a proper order. On the Internet, Collocation or colocation or co-location means the provisioning of space for a customer's telecommunications equipment on the service provider's premises. For example, a Web site owner could place the site's own computer servers on the premises of the Internet service provider (ISP). Or an Internet service provider could place its network routers on the premises of the company offering switching services with other ISPs. The co-location facilities offer the customer a secure place to physically house their hardware and equipment as opposed to locating it in their offices or warehouse where the potential for fire, theft, or vandalism is much greater. Most co-location facilities offer high-security, including cameras, fire detection and extinguishing devices, multiple connection feeds, filtered power, backup power generators and other items to ensure high-availability which is mandatory for all Web-based, virtual businesses.

    Colocation is a hosting option for small businesses who want the features of a large IT department without the costs. Many large corporations have the Internet infrastructure to host their own web servers and have a team of IT professionals to manage and design the site, individuals and small companies do not.

    If you have your own web server and you are storing in your home, it is highly recommended that you consider using colocation hosting services. Even though the cost of using colocation hosting services is higher than hosting your web server at home, colocation hosting services can offer you things that you won't have at home.

    Colocating the server gives you the greatest flexibility. You get to choose the hardware configuration of the server and the software that goes on it. The hosting company maintains the connection to the Internet and deals with environmental details such as uninterruptible power supplies (UPSs), fire controls, and air conditioning. On the other hand, you're responsible for that server's upkeep

    Hosting Service and Colocation Service?
    Recently, I often hear Hosting Service and Colocation Service by IT network solution companies or telephone companies.

    Could someone please explain what Hosting Service and Colocation Service are.

    Also, it would be greatly appreciated if you could let me know the most appropriate book for this area.

    Thank you!

    It is hosting service, which is provided by Colo services. You must pay for the power, Rackspace and BW. So, it is quite costly than dedicated server.

    Companies that offer colocated hosting say they're moving away from this service and encouraging their customers to rent a dedicated server. This means renting an entire server from the hosting service, but having the hosting company service and maintain it.

    When you opt for dedicated server colocation with the hosting company, you pay for the physical space that your server takes up. Colocation hosting usually requires a higher startup cost than renting a server from a hosting company, according to figures from Digital Nation. The server itself will cost around $4000 for a low-end model, and $9000 for a midrange server. A half-rack of space at a colocation facility will cost between $500 and $700 to start up and the same amount each month. Finally, you'll have to purchase a switch or a router, which will cost between $1500 and $2000 at the low end. This would result in an initial outlay of at least $7500 -- and it doesn't include the costs of staff time for setup and configuration, or the cost of equipment depreciation, insurance, and the standby equipment.

    I agree with you, i include that colocation allows you to place your server machine in someone else's rack and share their bandwidth as your own. It generally costs more than standard Web hosting, but less than a comparable amount of bandwidth into your place of business.
