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.

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.

The colocation facilities are primarily used where dedicated servers are placed. Colocation service providers allow their clients to put all their server related stuff including high tech telecommunication equipments in separate cages or racks at their data center. Colocation service offers you the security, reliability and speed for your server. Colocation services give you full control over your server. The Data centre collocation in India is well equipped with the world class infrastructure, backup systems, independent secure networks that helps to keep your server secure.

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.

A colocation centre or colocation center (also spelled co-location, colo, or coloc), is a type of data centre where equipment space and bandwidth are available for rental to retail customers. 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 allows you to place your server in a rack in our data center and share our 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.

Colocation services are mostly provided by data center service providers where you can rent rackspace and host your hardware and the service provider let you use the dc infrastructure for your hardware.

It is a type of hosting service where a provider: a) Leases data center space (footprints, server enclosures) and provides power, cooling and data center services (without networking service) ; b) Offers a everything listed in (a) plus network services line Internet connectivity (BGP, etc.) to clients that bring their own equipment (servers, appliances, switches and/or routers). When a telecommunication facility or data center, allows its tenants to build their own connectivity and to have their own upstreams, this is "carrier-neutral" colocation.

How much does colocation usually cost? I know it depends on how many hardware do I put but how much is the BW usually per unit? Give me some pointers

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 is nothing but a data center facility in which business can rent space for servers. The cost of colocation is higher than hosting your server at home. You can get very good services if you go with colocation hosting.

1. They provide must fast internet connection than any of your residential or business plans.
2. Colocation hosting providers have data centers which can supply ample power to hundreds of web servers.
3. They also provide ample cooling to your web server to keep them running in top condition.

Colocation is the service in which the data center used to provide the space for your server as well as hardware on rent. In this approach the service provider will provide you the storage space, bandwidth, physical security, power and you will provide your server or hardware. The main advantage of this service is that your overall cost of building and maintaining the data center is get reduced as well as you don't have to worry about the security, hardware part.

The storage space is nothing but the rank or cabinet provided by the service provider.

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. There is a wide range of options available from simple hosting up to running your own Web servers off of a dedicated Internet connection.

Colocation hosting 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.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.

Co-location (http://esds.co.in/colocation) refers to the way IT equipment and resources are located or installed. This usually refers to the networking hardware resources owned by an organization, such as Web or database servers, which are located outside the vicinity of the organization's premises and "co-located" with another organization's hardware, usually an ISP or a service provider. This is usually done because the ISP might be the best candidate for maintaining the Web server hardware for the organization and it would be better to keep the hardware in a more suitable place since ISPs have specially built places for networking hardware.
