Colocation service

Colocation Server Hosting involves a service that facilitates the client equipment’s placement in a specialized data center (briefly, DC) managed by a specific hosting provider, in this case, AlexHost.

The Colocation Data Center is a facility that meets standard criteria for all data centers. It is staffed by specially trained personnel managing emergency power sources (autonomous), modern ventilation systems with cold and hot aisles, video surveillance, DC infrastructure, client equipment, and high-speed communication channels with reservation options.

Colocating user servers in a data center ensures 24/7 stability of their operation and allows individually customize the parameters.

 

What is the server Colocations service?

Colocation, also known as “colocation hosting,” is a modern IT service that proposes place rental in a data center with the purpose of housing specialized IT equipment, primarily servers. Colocation specialists place the colocation server in a dedicated server rack (it may be owned by the client or rented). Each user can temporarily occupy one or multiple server rooms, depending on the conditions specified in the rental agreement. Essentially, colocation servers involve outsourcing IT equipment.

For whom the Colocation equipment placement option is recommended? This service is relevant for users who already possess server hardware and wish to host a large-scale web project on its infrastructure. It is also worth considering colocation hosting for clients who lack the capabilities to provide suitable conditions for traditional equipment placement within their office premises.

 

Placing Colocation server at AlexHost

Colocation server hosting is a service that you can order at an optimal price from the AlexHost hosting provider. What should you consider before placing an order? First, it’s important to understand that Colocation traditionally refers to a server with one unit of space. When ordering Colocation services, it is essential to take into account that the dimensions of the server equipment should adhere to commonly accepted standards (19 inches in width and a height value that is a multiple of one unit). This detail is crucial to ensure that the data center engineers can seamlessly install it in a rack or server cabinet.

Just before placing the equipment in the chosen data center (in this case, with AlexHost), specialists will conduct an expert examination to ensure compliance with established standards. Key factors include:

  • Electrical safety.
  • Power consumption.

Colocation server hosting involves the preliminary selection of a suitable communication channel to guarantee the digital project’s stable and efficient operation.

The decision to outsource equipment to the AlexHost data center should be based on a range of associated factors, including the cost of the service, reliability indicators, and a guaranteed level of security. As the managing company, you must identify the most acceptable and suitable combination of these parameters. To determine this, it is necessary to assess the criticality of failures and downtime specifically for your company. If your project relies heavily on the functionality and stability of IT equipment, even seconds of downtime can be critical.

 

Colocation service advantages

When choosing the Colocation server service at AlexHost, in addition to standard rack units and access to data center resources, clients will benefit from several accompanying advantages:

  • Significant cost savings for the company’s IT segment.
  • Fault tolerance.
  • High level of security.
  • Ease of infrastructure scalability.
  • 24/7 customer technical support.
  • Flexible customization of parameters.
  • Optimal equipment configurations.
  • Affordable Colocation service cost.

Let’s take a closer look at each of the Colocation service’s advantages. This service is extremely beneficial, especially when renting multiple rack units. Operating a server room with your own resources is much more expensive as it requires significant resources and equipment procurement.

The fault tolerance of systems is equally important. This parameter serves as the foundation for any enterprise’s stable and successful operation. In turn, the IT infrastructure plays a crucial role as one of the company’s basic segments. By placing equipment in a dedicated facility, it is possible to guarantee its uninterrupted operation through the reservation of communication channels, maintenance of optimal climatic conditions, and uninterrupted power supply.

Colocation servers are synonymous with complete security. In essence, this is one of the most important responsibilities of any data center, including AlexHost. By entrusting the equipment for hosting, the hosting provider automatically assumes responsibility for its comprehensive security. The AlexHost data center is equipped with innovative video surveillance systems, climate control, territory protection, and access control to the equipment room.

Colocation hosting is an ideal solution for organizations aiming to avoid the complex and resource-intensive process of creating and maintaining private server rooms. The Colocation service from AlexHost guarantees prompt connection of the client’s server to the data center’s channels and resources.

Almost all modern data centers, including AlexHost, continuously monitor the quality and parameters of the installed equipment. A team of skilled engineers provides comprehensive technical support, enabling the rapid and efficient resolution of any issues.

The flexibility of the service entails a wide range of diverse offerings, allowing for easy selection of a unique infrastructure that fully meets the dictated requirements and fits within the company’s budget.

Colocation involves placing your own equipment in a secure space monitored by the hosting provider. Therefore, you can individually configure its specifications, required software, and associated parameters. This approach allows for personalized equipment customization, simplifying administration and reducing maintenance costs.

The cost of connecting to secure communication channels and purchasing traffic is highly affordable when ordered from AlexHost. It’s worth noting that the price of traffic in a data center is significantly lower compared to service rates offered by providers in office centers.
