1. Affordability

One of the top benefits of colocation is cost and the savings it can bring to a business. The equipment that goes into a state-of-the-art data center is very expensive. Other large expenditures are electricity cost to power a data center, cost to have highly trained employees available, maintenance cost to keep the equipment functioning at high levels and up-to-date with industry standards, employees to make sure everything is maintained.

The above services alone are expensive and all together a reason why a lot of companies are choosing to go with colocation services for their computing. Sharing all of these costs is a great way to cut down on the budget.

2. Reliability

Downtime is crucial for any business in today’s market, today businesses are expected to be available around the clock. The effect of downtime is costly; downtime can cost a business $11,000 per minute and the price only goes up from there. It’s so important that a business is connected and available 24/7/365.

The fear of being down is driving more and more businesses to go with colocation services. Choosing colocation services means that they are prepared in dealing with disastrous situations and provide uptime of mission-critical services to ensure your business is always up around the clock.

3. Scalability

When starting out the idea is to go small and evolve into something bigger overtime. Colocation allows your business to do just this—start small with a single server in time grow into several more servers.

As a business grows scaling can be difficult and frustrating for all those involved. Finding space for more equipment, maintaining the equipment and finding knowledgeable workers is stressful. Who has time to do all of this? Again, colocation helps with these complicated issues.

With colocation services your business can easily scale operations to what is best for the business.
