    Colocation Hosting Colocation is much like dedicated hosting. You will have your own server that is only used by you. You will not lease the server as you will own the server. ... The main difference between managed hosting and colocation is the amount of control.

    Co location hosting- Co location hosting is the practice of housing privately owned servers and networking equipment in third party center. It provides the facilities for space, power, cooling and physical security for the servers, storage and networking equipment of other firms.

    Data center-It is the brain of the company and is the facility used to house computer system and is associated components. It is the facility that centralizes an organisation in IT operations and equipment.

    While colocation is similar to dedicated hosting (you own – rather than lease – the server), the difference between colocation and managed dedicated hosting is the level of control. With colocation, your IT team has unilateral control over all aspects of your server's management and implementation.

    Data center is to put simply a place where centralized data processing occurs, including the all the related processing and storing data, as well as back ups. The centralization will require a certain type of building with electrical, cooling, and network system to be built around that requirement.

    The colocation is a concept of having the shared location of IT equipment in the data center. Since the data center owner owns the building and facility, other people can put their equipment inside the data center and pay certain lease fee for its features, including electricity, cooling, network access, security, etc. People build data centers so that other people don't have to build their own server rooms and managing them.

    A colocation data center is when a data center company rents out the entire facility to another company. A colocation rack, on the other hand, is when they rent out rack space within a data center to multiple companies.

    Colocation is the use of a separate data center as a shared facility. A company's data is stored and managed offsite by a colocation provider along with data from other companies as well. Managed Hosting is the use of a data center, but a company is assigned their own dedicated servers or cloud servers.
