Any sharing about this matter will be highly appreciated.

I think very good....

The prime advantages you will get with colocation are:

Performance (as you will be determining the hardware specifications)
More control over server administration

04-21-2011, 01:30 AM
Before deciding if colocation is right for you, there are several factors to consider. First, you must look carefully at the fee structure. Colocation, unlike dedicated servers, requires payment of both rental and connection fees. You will pay a rental fee for the physical space your server will occupy at the host company.

06-06-2011, 12:07 AM
The main advantage ot Co-location is that you own the hardware. You need to invent more money in the beginning while purchasing but after you co-locate the hardware in any datacenter, you just need to pay the power and bandwidth prices. And even if you cancel the services with any datacenter, you can take your hardware with you and con-locate in some other datacenter.

06-06-2011, 07:21 PM
The advantages can be that its customizable, security, high bandwidh is available, storage space can be high, flexibility, saves the overall hosting cost in long term. Co-location benifits you more in long term rather than on short term.

Have to agree with the posts on here. Redundant systems and multiple Tier 1 carrier providers for network services I feel are extremely important, especially for mission critical applications.

06-20-2011, 09:04 AM
I found this one - webhostingunleashed.com/features/pros-cons-colocation/ useful for your question and given more explanations. Also i agree with those points that are told by mates above. It is really more flexible than other hosting types.
Thanks. :)

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

07-24-2011, 05:59 AM
The charges for Colocation hosting would usually include : Physical security, power, bandwidth, space, infrastructure, cooling, on-demand KVM, on-demand physical reboot etc. Depending on the datacenter you may also avail hardware firewall from the service provider as an additional precautionary measure.

09-05-2011, 05:39 AM
I think the advantages of colocation hosting is far more thann what it seemed to be its pros. Colocation hosting is the kind of hosting that is remote from the client which is beneficial for a client or company because of it provide comfort for the company because another company is conducting its responsibility.

09-07-2011, 05:43 AM
The main advantage is more control without the high expense of hosting it yourself. It is almost an in-between. It has some of the benefits of hosting your own server with some of the benefits of not hosting it yourself.

Benefits of hosting yourself:
you own the server

Benefits of not hosting it yourself:
you don't have to worry about security
you don't need to buy all the hardware

Colocation meets all the benefits above.

09-27-2011, 09:58 AM
There are many benefits for business which need Internet services that can be gained from quality colocation services that cannot be had any other way. A few of the benefits of using colocation over hosting Internet servers and equipment at a businesses office location are listed below to help explain colocation service and why is has grown so popular.

10-18-2011, 09:39 PM
Because of all above benefits co-location hosting charges good amount depending upon monthly bandwidth and rack space required which is as high as $ 500 – $ 1000 monthly. Reseller hosting. The third type of hosting is reseller hosting .

colocating your server at a dc is actually pretty good because everything is taken care for you. all you need is to pay a small monthly colocating fee and you can use your server however you want. it is way better than renting one off the data centers. you can save at least 50% of your monthly expenses.

In the world of 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.

But I don't use Windows all that often

05-19-2012, 09:12 AM
Colocation hosting offers many advantages, such as, everything is fully customizable; server is stored in location that has security; location of storage contains fast internet connection, security, rooms designed specifically for the servers; high bandwidth available; large amount of storage space; the servers are as fast, powerful and high-capacity as you purchase; can update/upgrade at will, must purchase equipment only; maximum uptime for large sites; increased flexibility; better performance because you determine the hardware specs; savings on overall hosting costs; decreased dependence on external customer support services, as most administration and maintenance can be performed through remote administration; ability to use existing hardware; more control over web server administration; etc.

05-22-2012, 05:10 AM
It is advisable that you must be aware of various types of other information about colocation hosting before choosing it. Verify the fee structure because it takes charges from you while renting and connection.

Colocation providers provide additional security for your machines. Your server is stored and maintained in a secured environment.

10-04-2012, 10:56 PM
Colocation is great but you really have to know your stuff and how to manage the servers, you are also responsible for your own hardware so if a failure occurs be ready to drive to the datacenter at 2 am.

10-22-2012, 10:26 AM
it is good, we have use this for a long time

11-05-2012, 02:43 AM

11-21-2012, 11:59 AM
I think the benefits of colocation hosting is more thann just what it was its advantages. Colocation web hosting is the sort of web hosting which is remote from the customers and that is beneficial for a customer or business because of it offer comfort for the business because an additional business is conducting it is responsibility. .

05-24-2013, 05:37 AM
The advantages are:
More control over server administration

Network Reliability. You provide the server, but we manage the network. With a fault-tolerant SONET fiber ring, we can provide private data connections that deliver near 100 percent uptime. With more and more businesses depending on constant connection, your business continuity depends on network reliability, which by the way is much cheaper to rent than own.
Power Redundancy. If you manage your own data center – whether that be one server or many – you’ll need a backup in the case of a power outage. Also expensive to own, yet critical to ongoing business operations. Not many businesses can survive power outages that last more than a day or two.
On-site Specialists and Troubleshooting. Something’s not working correctly, you can’t access your data, your IT guy is on vacation, so what do you do? With colocation hosting, you simply call one of our technical specialists who will talk you down from that ledge and get you back up and running. Much better than the phone book (remember… your Internet is down!)
Bandwidth. You can always throw money at improving bandwidth or you can share that cost with other colocation customers and get all the bandwidth you need to smoothly run your network operations. Your choice here, but as bandwidth requirements increase with more complex applications and cloud computing, colocation hosting becomes a more and more economical choice.
Security and Data Protection. Data breaches have increased year over year and there’s no end in sight. With data regulations becoming stricter, and penalties becoming more expensive, a data breach in many companies can spell disaster. Colocation facilities generally offer key card entry, cabinet locks, and surveillance.

11-01-2013, 10:23 AM
You need to invent more money in the beginning while purchasing but after you co-locate the hardware in any datacenter, you just need to pay the power and bandwidth prices. And even if you cancel the services with any datacenter, you can take your hardware with you and con-locate in some other datacenter.

11-19-2013, 09:00 PM
At the end of the day, it's about cutting costs.

Hosting Providers are merely paying Bandwidth and Power costs, that's it.

01-14-2014, 08:52 AM
Colocation is a hosting option for small businesses who want the features of a large IT department without the costs.
