Colocation – locating servers and high-tech equipment away from the bricks-and-mortar location of a business – is no longer just for the big boys of the data world. It’s also becoming an emerging consideration for small- to mid-sized business owners.

Many small business owners find themselves burdened and overwhelmed with the task of keeping a server running 24/7 for their business and Internet hosting needs. Colocation facilities at a data center can provide small and mid-sized business owners peace of mind about their IT needs with state-of-the-art security, safety, performance and reliability at a price that is more economical than one might think.

Common colocation services include:

  • lockable rack cabinets or cages
  • power in a variety of formats
  • network connectivity
  • proper cooling and ventilation
  • physical security, including video surveillance and key card access
  • real-time, live monitoring of all systems
We at Data Cave are reaching out to small business owners to inform them about the advantages of colocation and how it can work for their businesses. In fact, we’ve just published a whitepaper entitled, “Top Ten Reasons to Consider Colocation for Your Small to Mid-Sized Business.” We invite you to take a look and learn how you can better protect your critical data and improve your system’s reliability and connectivity.
