If anyone knows, please share.
Thanks in advance.

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. Once you have a machine set up, you take it physically to the location of the colocation provider and install it in their rack or you rent a server machine from the colocation provider. That company then provides an IP, bandwidth, and power to your server. Once it's up and running, you access it much like you would access a Web site on a hosting provider. The difference being that you own the hardware.

If you own a server and want to connect to the Internet, there are companies that will handle the connection for you. This service is known as colocation.

Most hosting providers will also offer Colo services. Although, it is important to understand that they need to be reimbursed for power, BW and rackspace so it is not always a cheaper option than getting a dedicated server.

Colocation Hosting - The perfect solution for your servers to thrive

Your computer system is the lifeblood of your company and chances are you'd be lost without it. As your business grows, so does your system, and it becomes increasingly important to make sure your systems and servers are well looked after. It's not often feasible to have your own data centre though, and in most cases it's too expensive.

Colocation clients purchase, manage and maintain their own equipment, including servers, switches, etc. The data center provides the facility, cabinet space, redundant power, BGP bandwidth, climate controlled environment and security. The amount of cabinet space you require will depend on how many racks you’ll need. Each rack can normally house 42U of rack space, where 1U of space equates to 1.75 inches in height.

Colocation Pros:

If you’re in close geographical proximity to your data center, you can work on your own equipment (upgrades, etc.) avoiding the cost of outsourced parts and labor.

As you grow, savings from colocation grow as well.

As a rule, it’s generally less expensive when compared to unmanaged dedicated.

Your fixed assets show on your balance sheet, indicating higher net worth (important to banks and potential customers).

If you’re using accrual accounting, you’ll be able to show profitability on your income statement by spreading expenses over three to five years (depreciation).

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.

It's important that the datacenter you colocate in has redundant system (meaning that electrical, cooling etc are designed so that one point of a failure won't take out the entire system.

Colocation is where you place your own server in a data center facility and the data center hosts your servers, and you only pay for space, bandwidth, and power usage.

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.

Mac Rozer

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.

Co-Location hosting is different from normal Shared, VPS or Dedicated server hosting. In all these hosting plans, the server hardware belongs to the hosting provider, you just rent some space or entire server by paying the applicable charges. You are not the owner of the server, you are just renting it. In Co-Location services, you own the server hardware and you keep server in some datacenter or with some hosting provider. Here you just need to pay the Rack charges, Power charges and Bandwidth charges. You are the owner of the server in Co-Location hosting.

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.

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.

alen12345
06-11-2012, 04:09 AM
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.

Colocated hosting means place your own server into the center of the Data and rent network and get the power from them. It means that you can share their bandwidth as your own.

The only thing you would have to do is imagine that Your website is a living human, who needs a place to live. So, co-location is like a private mansion. It’s different from the previous option only with the fact that the mansion is your own property; the construction was based on your plan, on your money.
The host owns only the land beneath it, and all the communications (water, gas, electricity, etc.). Unlike in real life, this house is still a lot easier to move to another website with another host.

This service, which has not been picked up by a good Russian lexical equivalent, means placing your server on a network of the provider, on his server platform. You will have to take care about data integrity, website availability and traffic; the provider also offers you the needed space, power, the Internet access, security, and possible support.

In addition to all the services for the placement of your website, hosting companies also provide you with additional services that you may also be interested in: domain name registration, domain parking, reselling.
It is not that difficult to draw parallels from the life for these services.

Colocation services provide you the freedom of buying your own server with your required configuration and just place it at required infrastructure at low cost in the form of rent. Thus you can avoid buying any hardware from a web hosting company and still use their data center to place your server. Normally it is an costly affair to build hosting infrastructure for a single or two servers, so in such cases colocation service is the perfect solution.

As a hosting expert i want share my view towards Collocated hosting.Collocated hosting is similar to dedicated hosting with the difference that you actually own the server, so, beside software upgrades, you can buy hardware upgrades too (more memory, larger hard drives, etc.). The main advantage of Collocated hosting is that the server stays in protected environment, with optimal connections to the Internet, rather than staying in an office or at home.Do you have any idea about disadvantage of Collocated hosting?If yes then share your opinion with us.

Co-located Hosting - A co-located hosting plan requires you to purchase a web server that is located at a third party facility designed with resources which include: a secured cage or cabinet, regulated power, dedicated internet connection, security and support. These 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. While a co-located solution is perfect for businesses who require a large amount of bandwidth and storage, physical access to your server may be an issue.

GardnerBulkeley

Colocation refers to placing your server in a third party data center which would be maintained by a service provider on your behalf.

Colocating a server has various advantages:
Firstly, you don't have to worry about the up keep and administration of the server.

Next, it may not be feasible to house a server on your premise due to lack of appropriate infrastructure so you need to
place it with a colocation provider.

It also allows you to have a server of your choice rather then choosing what's available with a hosting provider which may not be what meets your needs.

So colocation is more expensive than managed webhosting, and your physical access to your equipment is limited by the datacenter’s business hours and its physical distance from you. It is imperative to choose a colocation host that is reasonably nearby, and there will be special considerations if there is a possibility of the business moving. Depending on how often you access the equipment, increased distance will greatly affect the value of the current service agreement. There is also the option to pay the datacenter to manage the equipment, but that requires significant additional costs.

Nevertheless, there are very real advantages to colocation, and in the right situation, these advantages can greatly outweigh the disadvantages discussed above. Perhaps the biggest advantage is bandwidth and associated costs. The best colocation datacenters have multiple backbones with redundancies that allow for extremely reliable, high-speed connections. Since the client only pays for usage, this provides all the advantage of a T1 connection without the vast overhead.

In addition, colocation datacenters tend to offer power protection that is unrivaled save by the largest corporate facilities. Power services include redundant power lines, onsite backup generators and multihomed networks. Furthermore, colocation facilities have specialists on site and a stock of spare parts so that when failure does occur, they can rectify it quickly. This allows for a true guarantee of 99.99 percent uptime or higher, which is often promised but not realistic in a managed environment.

Moreover, a colocation service can provide much greater security than the typical office environment or managed solution can. A building suitable to house a colocation facility will have utmost protection against forced entry, unauthorized access, fire and natural disasters. Your equipment in particular is locked in a cage that only you and personnel that you approve can access. A colocation service will also provide firewalls, intrusion-detection mechanisms and other network security measures. There is also the advantage of there being no direct association between who owns the equipment and where it is stored.

The question remains, is colocation right for you? As a rule of thumb, colocation tends to be the right option for the business that has outgrown managed webhosting but is not yet large enough to make in-house webhosting and a dedicated IT department practical. Think of colocation as a compromise between managed and in-house webhosting. What does outgrowing managed hosting mean? Managed webhosting tends to force you to think within the narrow preconceptions of the industry. Once this narrowness begins to interfere with your vision, you have outgrown it.

Colocated hosting provider is responsible for the security and upkeep of the facility, so that the space, power and bandwidth that they provide you are not compromised. As you can see, colocation is much more of a hands-on, do-it-yourself solution, as opposed to managed hosting. A colocation provider will rent out space in a data centre in which customers can install their equipment, but will also provide the power, bandwidth, IP address and cooling systems that the customer will require in order to successfully deploy their server.

Of course this is possible! Just make sure that you use some international delivery options, such as UPS, etc.
Are you interested in Colocation in Germany? You can rent colocation space and then ship the servers to our data center. We can help you with our remote hands service to install the servers in the racks. You can rent from 1 unit up to entire racks with 47 units. You can find more information on www.internetx-housing.com.

Colocation facilities like RACKBANK work as a type of data center that rents equipment space and bandwidth to companies and businesses that need a network service provider at a reasonable cost. Businesses could spend a small fortune creating a private infrastructure, but by tapping into colocation facilities, those same businesses can rent the services they need without having to create the communications system themselves.

Co-location hosting is a service where someone else holds the server hardware that you provided and gives it an internet connection. He or she placed it in a secure facility designed with resources which include a secure cage or cabinet, regulated power, dedicated Internet connection, security and support.

These 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.

In this scenario, the provider is not responsible for the support and maintenance of your server. Some providers offer maintenance services for additional cost, but most of them don’t.

Colocation is much like dedicated hosting with colocation hosting (http://www.go4hosting.in/services/colocation) You will have your own server that is only used by you and A colocation provider will rent out space in a data centre in which customers can install their equipment you can store your server at a facility that has been designed to provide the highest security.

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.

Colocation - the moving or placing things together, sometimes implying a proper order. This term derived from collocation and often spelled "co-location", is used to mean the provision of space for a customer's telecommunications or computer equipment at 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 ISP could place its network routers on the premises of the company offering switching services with other ISPs. Businesses often colocate their equipment with a service provider in order to take advantage of higher bandwidth availability and backup power.

Colocation (also known as ‘co-location’ or ‘colo’) is the practice of housing privately-owned servers and networking equipment in a third party data centre. Instead of keeping servers in-house, in offices or at a private data centre, companies can choose to ‘co-locate’ their equipment by renting space in a colocation centre. Therefore, unlike other kinds of hosting, where customers can rent space on a server owned by a hosting provider, with colocation the customer already owns the server and rents the required physical space to house it within a data centre.

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. ... That company then provides an IP, bandwidth, and power to your server.

Colocation is a data center facility where business can rent a space for servers so companies can collocate their equipment. Instead keeping and maintaining servers in offices or at private data center. It costs more than the standard web hosting.

In simple we can say that by co-location we can place our server machine in someone else rack and share their bandwidth as ours.

Colocation hosting (https://www.esds.co.in/colocation) service providers have much faster internet connections than your typical residential or business internet plan. If your website is expecting a lot of traffic or requires a fast internet connection, no residential or business internet plan will be able to cut it.

Power is another thing that you won't have if you host your web server at home. Colocation hosting service providers have data centers whose circuitry can supply ample power to hundreds of web servers. Furthermore, they have back up power systems and generators to continue powering the web servers for several days in case there is a power outage. Even if you install an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) at home, it won't last nearly as long as what colocation hosting providers can offer.

Colocation hosting is similar to dedicated hosting, with one notable exception.
In dedicated hosting, customers rent servers as well as the infrastructure needed to house and maintain them. In colocation hosting, companies own their own hardware, but are looking to augment its usefulness by renting server space in a data center, which provides benefits like improved Internet bandwidth, server cooling systems and climate control, and reliable power. Colocation hosting can be compared to owning a boat and renting a berth for it at the closest port of call. The boat remains in your possession and you can access it at any time, but you’re still enjoying the services of the port – including security for your vessel and the ability to use the facility’s equipment to maintain and get the most out of your boat..

Colocation or colo is a data center service where the provider leases out his space and provides server storage as well. The client himself is the owner of these servers and holds complete ownership of the hardware and software. It is important for a business to understand that colocation services (https://www.host.co.in/colocation-hosting.php) are different from cloud services. In case of colocation services, clients lease out their own hardware and space, but in the case of cloud services, this hardware and services are offered by the provider.
