What is Colocation?
Colocation enables you to host all of your IT systems, servers and rack equipment off site in a secure environment. Hosting your own systems on-site can become increasingly prohibitive for businesses as physical space, power and connectivity costs spiral. It then begins to make more sense to hand over all your hosting to an external organisation for one agreed monthly fee.
Alternatively, you may wish to still host your systems on-site, but are thinking of Disaster Recover (DR) scenarios, should your comms room power or connectivity fail. It then becomes sensible to consider locating some kit completely off-site that can continue to run your business in the event of any disaster. Colocation of a single U server in our Essex Data Centre can cost less than 70 pounds per month to guarantee your company presence remains live, regardless of what happens elsewhere.

Tell us what you need to locate and how you want it to work. We can build a bespoke plan for you free of charge.
Pricing for colocation depends upon two main factors: Space required (Number of “U”) and, more importantly, the amount of power required. In some cases, if you require minimum space but high power, it may be more cost effective (and future-proof!) to take advantage of one of our deals on quarter, half or full racks.

I was in the process of uploading a (Big) video to YouTube. After 30 minutes of waiting, a colleague asked me if I was on the new connection and I said no. So, I change my Internet adapter settings to get on the new line and re-uploaded my video. 2 minutes later, the video was uploaded! I was well impressed and it no longer feels like I'm connecting to the Internet on a 56k modem 🙂
