    Hi!

    A colocation facility is a physical data center hosting facility that allows customers to deploy their own servers, networks and storage hardware powered by Internet bandwidth, electricity, backup power and other services generally required in a data center.

    Colocation facilities are built capitalize on the economies of scale achieved through shared bandwidth, power and disaster resistant facilities. In colocation facilities, customers only own the server and related hardware and procure all other services based on a monthly billing cycle.

    Colocation facilities provide space, power, cooling, and physical security for the server, storage, and networking equipment of other firms—and connect them to a variety of telecommunications and network service providers—with a minimum of cost and complexity.

    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.
